Soylent 2.0 Unboxing and Taste Test Vids

There are a few unboxing and taste test videos of Soylent 2.0 that people have made. Posting a few in case it helps someone wanting to know how they are packaged or first impressions of taste.

One thing that was not immediately apparent to the two people tasting Soylent 2.0 above (and I would assume is a common question) is whether or not you are supposed to shake the drink prior to consumption.

I would assume that shaking is not required, but I would like someone who knows for sure to answer. (@Conor ?)

It tastes the same whether I shake it or not, so the answer is no.

I generally shake it anyway out of habit :smiley:


No shaking required :smiley:


I started out not shaking it, and about 4 bottles in I got a rather gritty final sip. I now shake it a little before drinking. It does not need the vigorous shaking that my DIY powder required.

I’ve seen a little sludge at the end of a bottle so a quick shake or two might help. I usually fill the bottle part way with water after and drink that as well so I don’t bother shaking before drinking the Soylent.

If you don’t shake it, it’s perfectly smooth until the last sip where you feel some powder/grit.

If you shake it, it’s a little less smooth but the grittiness is hardly noticeable. It’s that gritty part at the end getting distributed to the whole bottle.


this could be a solution to people who find it too smooth for their liking :smiley:
