Tastes weird, but gets the job done. drink one and you're done for breakfast. warning: high amount of soy content though (google effects of high soy intake)

Meh, I found these okay. If you're a tech bro with no time for real meals, then maybe (I worked at a small startup this spring and when i tell u they had cases of these). At least there is a good flavor range.

Expensive. Weird after taste. Bleh. All the engineers at my old company drank this. I did not get the hype.

Have tried Soylent a number of times over the year. It's not terrible, but it's also not my favorite. Heard the bottled versions are an improvement from the powder. Personally prefer solid food as a meal vs a smoothie, but for those who are indifferent or prefer smoothies, I can see the appeal as a quicker, more affordable meal.

Not a big fan of Soylent. It really puts me off. It doesn't taste good in my opinion

Tasted great and not powdery but it didn't keep me as full for as long as I was hoping for the price

You've heard about it. You've seen it. It's become a self-meme. But if you've tried it you know...it tastes like you'd expect Soylent to taste. Chalky, bland - it removes the joy from food. And I think we all deserve a little joy.

Feedback

Flavor and experience of consuming.

My husband was an original Kickstarter backer for Soylent, so we've had it around for years. I just started using it for the past couple weeks - primarily when there isn't anything in the house I want to eat. I've also started packing it on trips. We recently spent a couple days at an amusement park, and Soylent was a great dinner after a heavy, greasy lunch. It isn't delicious, but it is fine. I recommend mixing it a couple hours in advance so the powder and water can really mix.

Cool look & feel

Definitely a hit or miss with people but I personally enjoy the taste of the Soylent's I've tried. I always felt like it tasted like leftover cereal milk but slightly thicker, and that's cool with me. If nutrition/ingredient-wise this lines up with you, it's a great option to have for inconvenient times (these were great to have in the car for a cross-country trip)

Tasty 😋
