Purelent
Strawberry

Smell
Malted strawberry

Added:
2 Qt Water

Taste
Hints of strawberry. Oatmeal. Tasty.

Texture
Warm: Lumpy. Tiny lumps. Not small enough for grit. Thicker than milk.
Cold: slime after refrigeration, didn't even bother to try and make myself drink it, dumped it.

Fullness
Was full through lunch

Notes
Tossed after refrigeration, I couldn't handle the slime. The flavor was similar to joylent. I liked the flavor. This was consistent for both flavors I tried. If you are going to get nasty after storage you should sell in single servings.

took last comparative pumpkin decay experiment (bleach versus vinegar) photos
Question: which chemical preserves carved pumpkins better? bleach, vinegar
washed both carved pumpkins inside and out with said chemical
failed to do a control
left outside
decay was significantly slower than the indoor pumpkins
by 1 week later both has just started to have small spots of mold, but i couldn't identify which was better.
I think either works
will test again next year

Soylent 1.1

Taste

warm & cold: sweet, vanilla, followed by a floury finish

Texture

warm & cold: milk consistency, gritty

Fullness

not overly full, no longer ravenous

Notes

Got this in a trade, thanks, excited to try as many as possible. After refrigeration it separated and needed shaking again. Kinda gassy now I guess this is the stinky soylent farts everyone was referring to (which I found were less, and went away after adjustment period with 1.3, 1.4, 1.5). Taste doesn't bother me, I expected it to be different based on all the chatter about OMG ITS BETTER when i joined the community with 1.3.

Very similar to 1.0

Powder Chow - Chocolate
Ordered: May 22
Arrived: May 29

Taste
fresh mixed - chocolate, lightly
chilled-slightly more mild chocolate - like you mixed up ovaltene but with too much milk

Texture
fresh mixed - thin, slightly gritty
chilled - smooth, but thin, slight grit in finish

Fullness
pretty full for hours

Notes
I like it, great taste, good texture. I didn’t have the requested oil so I used olive oil. I personally dislike having to have a thing - I prefer how some brands ship with the appropriate oil. On the other hand the flavor is delicious. I also like how the directions are on the bag - would prefer if it was 3ml (1/2tsp) or such.

About me

common questions on reddit

Female

5'5"

160-190 lbs depending (size 10/12)

not active (desk dweller)

Why soylent experiment?

Save time - I am busy and would eat tubs of ice cream because I was too tired to cook and too broke to buy. This is healthier than that.

How much?

I eat breakfast and dinner as soylent (or alternative) but cook and eat lunch with cowokers for social time. I also travel and do other events, often leading me to not have soylent (I like traveling with soylent when i can but sometimes lack the space)

Isn't it boring?

yes, but thats fine i chug it.

Do you not like food?

No i LOVE food, but enjoying cooking and eating a meal versus being very hungry and tired and then tossing things together is different. when I have time i am glad to cook and eat delicious things.

Soylent 2.0

Taste

Smell :flour? cookies? sweet

warm: sweet, vanilla almond milk, followed by a chalky taste and finish

After Taste/Mouth feel: Chalky

Texture

smooth, thick like almond milk (creamy?)

Fullness

Pretty full for breakfast, but i end up needing two if i have it for lunch or dinner.

Notes

at first i was like 1.3 vanilla i like this!

then the chalky after taste occurred and i decided i'd rather make my own mix bottles (aka one bottle with powder one with water mix when hungry) for on the go

i could see this as grab and go if i last minute had to run and hadn't prepped a blender bottle in advance but i think i would avoid it due to the chalk unless pressed.

Monday September 21

toast and jam and tea at the hostel for breakfast

dryed my jeans in the dryer

starbucks, reward (US) didn't work

Book of kells and the long hall at trintiy college
-amazing! so many books, i love old books, i want to live with a library like that (or access very nearby 24/7)

didn't do any of the other trinty sites as my SIM locked

got new sim, lost out 25 euro

st pat's cathedral and marsh's library

guiness tour - very disney (no real action, videos and reproductions and faux)
view from the gravity bar was lovely
had a nice Guinness stew for lunch

jamison tour - less faux but still repro (just working repro not actual equipment)
tasting of single v double v triple distilled at the end was interesting

the hop on / off green bus tour ticket was worth it IMO
