I’ve been drinking Soylent for all of my breakfasts, and it inadvertently ended up being the majority of my dinner last night as I tried out several of the flavors I ordered. My dad has been drinking it for 1 to 2 meals a day and hasn’t had a single Mountain Dew since starting on it. I had a Red Bull today and actually felt like crap afterwards. I hope that’s unrelated because I recently bought a huge pack of it from Costco.
I smelled them all first. Some of them smell really good. Some of them smell like the candle “equivalents” (e.g. how a gingerbread candle doesn’t actually smell like fresh gingerbread).
Pizza - being a pizza lover, I had to try it. My recommendation? Don’t. It tastes/smells nothing like pizza. Whatever it is it isn’t good.
Belgian Waffle - smells like maple syrup, tastes like a waffle drenched in it. One of my favorites. Will probably be a frequent mixer for breakfast.
Pralines and Cream - as someone mentioned in the flavoring Soylent thread, this one is quite good.
Maraschino Cherry - smelled good, but had a very strong chemical taste.
Peanut Butter - tasted almost exactly like the PB2 I tried before, but obviously without the added thickness, but had a weird chemical aftertaste. :-/
Orange (Sweet) - smelled and tasted exactly like those orange gummy slices covered in sugar. I love those things, but it was a weird taste for me in Soylent. I guess my brain just couldn’t reconcile it tasting like candy. :-/
Mint (?) - I had one of the mint flavors. Maybe wintergreen? I don’t quite remember, but I like everything mint.
Banana Nut Bread - Yum. Makes me want actual banana bread. Convinced one of my roommates to make some.
Red Licorice - tastes like red vines (not twizzers). Not bad, but like the sweet orange, weird in Soylent. :-/
Fudge Brownie - actually tastes like a fudge brownie with frosting, but has a slight chemical taste too. I think I’ll need to try it again, but I don’t think this will see regular usage. :-/
Root Beer Float - tastes/smells exactly like the A&W Root Beer hard candies. I like those but, again, my brain is having a hard time with candy-flavored Soylent. :-/
Toasted Marshmallow - much stronger smell than regular Marshmallow, which I haven’t tasted yet, but still has a mild taste. Not bad overall.
Cheesecake w/ Graham Crust - I’m actually not a big fan of cheesecake, but this one’s pretty good. I wish I had some strawberry flavor to mix with it.
Mango - pretty good, but really just made me want to get some frozen mangoes to actually blend into my Soylent.
Koolada 10% - this isn’t actually a flavor, and I didn’t put it in my Soylent yet, but it did put a drop on my tongue. It has no smell. Gave a slightly warm sensation when it hit my tongue, and then a slightly cool sensation, so I swished it around and NEARLY DIED. This stuff IS POTENT! It burned my throat pretty good, and I regularly chew methol flavored gum. Thankfully it washed down pretty easy with water. It’ll definitely make whatever you put it in seem cold in your mouth, but it’s terribly strong. I plan to use it with my mint flavorings.
Menthol Crystals - I haven’t actually don’t anything with these yet, but I stuck my nose in the bag and took a deep breath. I imagine that’s what taking a breath in the Arctic must feel like. I want to out a crystal in my water bottle now…
I think that leaves me with 19 more flavors to try.
