Totally disappointed in Strawberry...Nectar was WAY better


#1

I was super excited for a new flavor (so was my wife). We got our box of strawberry today…and I’m really sad. It was terrible warm, so we refrigerated a bottle and tried again later. It’s better cold but it is tasteless and boring. Bring back nectar!


#2

Nectar will never be returning sadly.


#3

Hmm, I’ve seen comments from five people who have tried it so far:

1 said they loved it
1 said it wasn’t bad but was a little disappointed
1 is “totally disappointed”
1 said it smells & tastes similar to Cap’n Crunch Berry’s milk, but didn’t specify if that was good or bad
1 said they loved it & it is his/her new favorite flavor & said it is similar to the mystery flavor from awhile back

Booooooooo.

EDIT: added new review


#4

I’m enjoying Strawberry well enough, but it ain’t Nectar, sigh!

(on that note, if Nectar’s “never coming back,” can you at least share a way to flavor plain to taste like it? Or has that already been done and I missed it?)


#5

Hmm, I’ve seen comments from seven people who have tried it so far:

1 said they didn’t like it
1 said they are enjoying it but preferred nectar


#6

Seems OK so far then. 2 loved it, one hated it, one middle of the road (me), and one unknown.


#7

After seven comments I would categorize it as:

2 loves
2 middle of road
1 hate (maybe too strong of a summation)
1 dislike
1 unknown

∞ who want nectar back (3, including me, but I haven’t tried strawberry yet)


#8

smelled ok, 1 sip and i was NOPE


#9

I disregard first-sip negative reviews. I’ve seen too many threads in this discourse where someone leaves a negative review the week of a release, to follow-up two weeks later that they now like the product because it has grown on them.


#10

Strawberry has an unpleasant sweet/bitter after taste.
When Nectar was discontinued I experimented using various artificial flavor drops with Original; I did not enjoy it because all the artificial flavor drops had a mild sweet/bitter after taste.
Strawberry tastes exactly the same to me as Original with added artificial strawberry flavor drops, so whats the point? This seems like a lazy and uncreative replacement to Nectar.
Nectar tasted like Fruit Loops to me and did not have this mild sweet/bitter after taste.
Big bummer, I was really excited about Strawberry.


#11

Would Blueberry Soylent be more an appealing idea to people here at all?


#12

I’d totally try a blueberry


#13

I’d definitely give Blueberry a try. The Strawberry would be alright if it wasn’t for that artificial concentrate bitter/sweet after taste, maybe it’s something they can improve on if they get enough feedback regarding it.


#14

I agree with the sentiment regarding blueberry. Sounds like a strong (and tasty) flavor to crowd out that serious aftertaste. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#15

Same here, Blueberry is the bom! Just had a coworker try the Strawberry,. same reaction I had, bad aftertaste.


#16

Has anyone tried the Strawberry Soylent side by side with Strawberry Ensure Plus? Would be curious to hear how they compare.


#17

They all have bad after tase… even the cacao which I love so much. However, I always have to chew gum or have something else along with the drink afterwards as it leaves a bad breath behind.


#18

I also always keep gum on hand for after Soylent. I don’t feel like Cacao, Original or Chai leave a bad taste, but I can tell I’ve got weird breath after drinking them.

Hi there!

I’m new here. 100% Soylent bottles for a month now.

My four boxes of Strawberry arrived yesterday.

I’ve tried all the flavors except Nectar.

Ranked Taste:

  1. Strawberry
  2. Cacao
    (big drop off)
  3. Original
  4. Coffiest
  5. Chai
  6. Vanilla

I love Strawberry! It is my new favorite. No aftertaste. Thinner tasting than the others. The flavor is subtle and soluble.

As well, love the new bottle!

I dislike Strawberry and can’t wait until my 12 bottles are gone. I can’t even put my finger on what I dislike about it. I just struggle to finish the bottle because it’s not enjoyable.

For the record I also didn’t like Nectar, but Cacao is pretty good. I generally like sweet things and fruit flavors, so this seems strange to me.
