I ordered back in October of last year, and received my Soylent last week. It’s great. The second day was a bit rough - a big ole’ headache and some digestive nonsense - but I think that’s at least partly because, in my rush to try it, I forgot to add salt to the first batch. Since then (eating about 50-75% Soylent), everything’s been going perfectly.
Waiting for almost a year was frustrating, and you guys have gotten a really hard time about it. Probably some of the criticisms about inconsistent communication, etc., are justified. But it struck me today that you had a lot of opportunities to trade quality for speed, and you didn’t. I think many other fledgling companies, under the pressure of that level of criticism, would have sourced whatever they could get in order to push out the product - even if it meant inferior rice protein that didn’t blend as well, for example.
Thanks for standing by the integrity of the product. As of now, you’ve earned a loyal customer who is excited to see what future versions will bring. If you ever need a beta tester in the Orange County, CA area, let me know.
Hopefully this post isn’t taken as a slap in the face to people who are still waiting. For what it’s worth, in my opinion, it was worth every second.
