common questions on reddit

Female

5'5"

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.

JouleFuel Chocolate Cookies and Cream

Taste
salty melty oreo milk shake, sour finish

Texture
warm: like almond milk, with grit
cold: thick like a smoothy, some grit (feels like chia seeds) still but not as bad as fresh mixed warm

Fullness
pretty full for hours, onset of fullness was very fast like 100% food

Notes
I like the flavor, and texture, i dislike the tart/salty bit. I also dislike having to add my own oil. I don't hate it but I won't buy it again.
Not surprisingly very similar to vanilla cookies and cream but more oreo chocolately.
Ugh yeah that after tang lingers and I hate that, bleh.

Awesome Apple Pie

Taste
warm: Apple turnover (sweet apple and flour but not much cinnamon)
cold: MUCH sweeter, could not handle this three meals a day

Texture
warm: slightly thicker than almond milk, slightly gritty
cold: actually not much thicker but slightly smoother, still gritty

Fullness
Drank 400ml and still kind of hungry, I'll give it a bit.
Had to over-drink (have more) I think a bit more than a serving to be full.

Notes
3ml oil is 1/2 tsp according to google so mixed in 1/2 tsp olive oil

Original
Vanilla

Smell
Vanilla cake batter

Taste
Vanilla cake batter

Texture
cupcake batter, with chunks

Fullness
OMG so full, almost nauseous

Notes
it was warm, i made it and didn't refrigerate as it's a single serving.
I usually only have 3/4 of a pint of soylent for breakfast so this was a bit more, might be a better dinner serving size for me.

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

Taste
fresh mixed - cookie
chilled-a little vanilla? mostly cookie

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

Fullness
pretty full for hours

Notes
Not really gettingmuch vanilla. I like it though, great taste. 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.

Moasic Nutrition
Body Fuel Original Blend Chocolate

Order: June 12
Arrived: June 26

Taste
Chocolate, salty sour finish

Texture
warm: chunky, watery
cold: thick and slimy with chunks

Fullness
pretty full for hours

Notes

Interesting it lets you customize based on Gender, Age, Height, Desire to gain or lose, low carb or gluten free, and flavor.

Directions 8-12 ounces per scoop and 15 scoops a bag. I dislike the generic ness of it. I made with gallon of water.

I know this is my girlfriends favorite brand but I really don't see myself ever buying tis brand again.

BERTRAND
Natural

Order: May 17
Arrived: May 30

Taste
warm & Cold: oatmeal, slightly sour after taste

Texture
warm: thin, with chunks
cold: very thick - like an extra thick milkshake

Fullness
yes I was full after a pint, not very full but good for 3 hours.

Notes
I like the vanilla best I think it has the least after taste or off flavor. I would purchase this and enjoy it if it were local (shipping fees etc mean it's fairly expensive).

VIT Meals
Peanut Butter

Taste
Warm & cold: peanut butter shake. Salty finish

Texture
Warm: watery grits or maybe water with chia seeds
Cold: thick smoothy with chia seeds

Fullness
I had the bag for dinner and was not hungry when i went to bed.

Notes:
Interesting the PB got thick when cooled but the unflavored didn't? I like the PB flavor but the salty finish is not making me happy. I can deal but it just ads that spike of "huh?" that spoils the great flavor with the aftertaste.

VIT Meals
Unflavored

Taste
Warm: salty oatmeal
Cold: still salty oatmeal

Texture
Warm: watery grits or maybe water with chia seeds
Cold: watery grits or maybe water with chia seeds

Fullness
I ate half a bag and was full for hours.

Notes:
Unlike many meal replacements, this did not get thicker with refrigeration. Not loving it or hating it.

The company contacted me and let me know I ended up with an unflavored one designed for people who want to bake it! Oopse. It wasn't bad though.

So I followed their suggestion and Made pancakes
Recipe
1.5c almond milk
1 egg
1 packet

The pancakes were very watery, so I ended up making scrambled egg style food.

It was delicious, honestly like DELICIOUS

omnomnom

I might suggest less milk

To note it produced more scrambled VIT than I could consume in a sitting, but I was full for at least 4 hours after even after eating only 1/3-1/2 the food.

BERTRAND
Vanilla

Order: May 17
Arrived: May 30

Taste
warm: watery oats

cold: oatmeal

Texture
warm: watery gritty oats

cold: thicker, blended cold oatmeals

Fullness
i had to go back for a second pint, but was no longer ravenous. so somewhat filling? Like when you have a sandwich and you are no longer hungry but could totally eat some chips, then a bit later you eat the chips because you are a little hungry.

Notes
Due to vague directions I blended 1Qt water with whole packet then poured into bottles to bring to work and Hacksburg. I didn't get much vanilla. I dislike vague directions like 1/3 container plus water. Please indicate on your packaging the amount of mix to water for one serving, and for the whole bag. In cups and in weigt for powder b/c sometimes i do not want to break out scales. hell i never want to break out scales. Much better warm than cold IMO, and I would purchase this again if I didn't like soylent more. This is tasty though.

Soylent 1.5

Taste
warm: floury, malty, something just - off
cold: nice and blank

Texture
warm: smoother, still powder chunks when shaken but somehow less gritty even though at the time prior ones didn’t seem gritty
cold: smooth

Fullness
warm/cold: nauseously full after 2 pints

Notes
i do not like the new flavor, it seems less neutral. I prefer 1.3 and 1.4 and hope they go back that way at some point. Right now the most available meal replacement i like (since i can’t get more 1.3 and 1.4) is joy lent. based on the fact i actually can get 1.3 and 1.4 in r/soylentmarket if i run out of ones to try i’ll restock those first (plug, check my spreadsheet, am i missing brands? can we trade for any i missing?). I like it cold. I dislike that I don't like it warm. so 1.3 1.4 and joylent still are preferred by me.

made with half gallon vanilla almond milk, and the rest water

Interesting it lets you customize based on Gender, Age, Height, Desire to gain or lose, low carb or gluten free, and flavor.

BERTRAND
Blueberry
Order: May 17
Arrived: May 30

Taste
warm: smell: oaty then sour. Taste: oaty, watery almond milk then a sour, then a unripe blueberry

cold: sour, acidic, very unplesant, tried forcing myself to drink it but ended up eating snacks instead

Texture
warm: very watery almond milk with grits splashed in, mouth slightly gritty after

cold: thicker, still a almond milk wiht a bit of grits

Fullness
i had to go back for a second pint, but was no longer ravenous. so somewhat filling?

Notes
it seems to have actual chunks of bluberry based on the color bleed as it sits. Note i dislike vague directions like 1/3 container plus water. please indicate on your packaging the amount of mix to water for one serving, and for the whole bag. in cups and in weigt for powder b/c sometimes i do not want to break out scales. hell i never want to break out scales.

JouleFuel Chocolate

Taste
Warm & Cool: Made with vanilla almondmilk. Sweet, malty chocolate like ovaltine. Very salty finish.

Texture
Warm: almond milk consistency with chia seeds.
Cold: thin smoothie with chia seeds.

Fullness
pretty full for hours, onset of fullness was very fast like 100% food

Notes
Strong chcolate smell, comes out mild ovaltine. I like the flavor but hate the salty finish. the chunky chia seeds is OK. Also dislike the needing oil and getting a gallon of drink - that is a lot to drink in a day.

JouleFuel Vanilla Berry

Taste
Warm & Cool: sweetish thick vanilla milk with hints of berry. A mild natural flavour I like. Unfortunate tart/sour finish.

Texture
warm & cool: like almond milk, with chia seeds

Fullness
pretty full for hours, onset of fullness was very fast like 100% food

Notes
Strong strawberry smell that comes out mild in actual flavor. Mixed half gallon unsweetened almond milk and 2c water because I ran out of milk. 1 bag is 4 servings. I like the flavor, and the texture is OK I can swallow the chia seed texture if I keep reminding myself "DO NOT CHEW". This is because I prefer chugging and not wasting time sipping. I dislike the tart/salty bit. I also dislike having to add my own oil. I don't hate it but I won't buy it again

JouleFuel Vanilla Cookies and Cream

Taste
Warm with water: salty melty cookies and cream ice cream, sour finish
Warm with almond milk: sweeter melty cookies and cream ice cream, but stil that tart/sour finish
Cool with almond milk: sweet like a cookies and cream milkshake - no sour finish but a little salty finish
Cold with water: salty, vanilla, finish of hints of chocolate

Texture
warm: like almond milk, with grit
cold: thick like a smoothy, some grit (feels like chia seeds) still but not as bad as fresh mixed warm

Fullness
pretty full for hours, onset of fullness was very fast like 100% food

Notes
I like the flavor, and texture, i dislike the tart/salty bit. I also dislike having to add my own oil. the salt is there if i use water, and i dislike the idea of having to keep milk around the house in order to make something palatable. I don't hate it but I won't buy it again.
I preferred it best chilled and with almond milk.
