I’m pretty disappointed with the new bottles for Soylent 2.0. The older, square-ish bottles were so much more space-efficient because not only were they shorter, but the flat sides meant they could easily be stacked.
I remember being so excited when the square bottles came out, as it was a real improvement over the original 2.0 bottles. But these new bottles feel like a step backwards to all the problems of the originals: they can only be placed upright or else they roll around, they’re too tall to fit on certain shelves, and they cannot stack (not sideways because of rolling, and not top-to-bottom because the cap is too small to be stable).
I live in an apartment with a half-sized fridge, and it’s now difficult to fit a full shipment of Soylent 2.0 into it. I miss being able to just lay the bottles on their sides without them rolling off the shelf.
I know this is pretty nit-picky, but I’m just struggling to see any way in which this update is an improvement. Unless this shape is much easier to produce for some reason?
