TOO Expensive, and Sucralose is bad.
by SiwajFam (1 out of 5 stars)
October 6, 2018

This product is very unique because it has a good amount of calories, and good nutrition as well, which is great. BUT, They care about being vegan, yet waste a bunch of plastic. They care about being healthy, yet use Sucralose. They care about the future and serving to the masses, yet charge at a premium cost. My suggestion is, use 20% real sugar. If more sugar is needed, use organic stevia leaves. Lower the cost. Significantly lower the cost of the powder version. Sell multi serving bottles so less plastic is used. Only use recycled plastic. And, to think outside the box, sell glass bottles in some locations with a bottle filling service at similar cost.

Good tatse, not as filling as Original
by Joy M. (5 out of 5 stars)
July 29, 2017

I've been drinking Soylent in Original for few years now, and decided to try Cacao. It was about $25 with Alexa promo, so I ordered few boxes. At about $2 per drink = $2 per meal, the price was great.

Taste:
- it's freaking delicious.
- no strong chocolate smell/taste, which is a huge plus for me. It's sweet enough to be delicious, but not so artificially sweet that you're wondering if you're feeding yourself some radioactive chemicals. I hate other meal replacement drinks or protein shakes that are cacao flavored-- it's just too sweet. This guy, however, is more subtle. It's closer to adding few drops of chocolate flavor to your original soylent, than a chocolate milk.

Filling:
- for some reason, I find original soylent more filling. Maybe it's because cacao flavor is so delicious that I'm chugging it down faster? I don't know, but I get hungry faster after drinking the cacao flavor than drinking original flavor.

I love this cacao flavor, but I won't be using it as my only soylent. I keep a box of original and cacao in my office to grab whatever i feel like drinking that day.

These drinks saved my life while I was on chemo and all I could tolerate was liquids. This helped me not need to get a feeding tube. It tastes great too!

Based on youtube research did a 4 week challenge of drinking this stuff (along with one can of solid white tuna or a can of sardines a day) and about a gallon of water a day plus rainbow vitamin a day and dropped 28 pounds in 4 weeks (from 278 to 250). The cacao is more expensive and the original drink tastes like everyone says, like the milk left over from a bowl of cheerios (so added a squirt of chocolate syrup and it tasted very good). Drank 3 replacement drinks per day and on several occasions from boredom mostly, drank 4 bottles on those days. My family was impressed with this and one of my sisters tried it but she only lasted 5 days and lost I think 6 pounds - the point being using it to lose weight isn't for everyone. To maintain my weight loss my rule of thumb is if I don't know the calorie count I don't eat or drink it. I don't drink alcohol or do any caffeine and usually dont sugar/sugar free drinks of any kind (other than these drinks) and take in no more that 2100 calories per day and that seems to be working as I'm in maintenance mode right now. 2 drinks one for breakfast (5am) and one for early lunch(10am) then a huge mixed salad with tomato and onion (no dressing) around 2pm and a can of tuna or sardines (around 6pm) and if I'm still hungry a meal replacement drink around 8pm - been eating this way for an additional 4 weeks now and weight loss is more

slow I'm down to 235 pounds. Never ate out or did fast food and have been drinking just mostly water the past 3+ years so I learned my weight gain trigger was fried chicken and that I snack way too much (ex: unsalted peanut /cashews). At 6ft4 carried the max weight well but felt bad once I listened to my body and my clothes were all really really tight. Always felt good at 230lbs so will probably add more food/calories in the next week or so. My blood pressure is now steady at an amazing 110/70 (was170s/85). My clothes hanging off of me is a gift (motivation)and a curse(flabby!) and so

I'm back to working out 4 days a week to "tighten and firm" things up with new found energy. Highly recommend these meal replacement drinks. My sister used my meal replacement drinks but felt they were too expensive for her to purchase so she also used "premier 50 grams of protein drinks" from Walmart which I recently started doing, they have like 5 different flavors. Sorry for the ramble and no, Soylent isn't paying me, just happy where I'm at and wanted to share my weight loss experience with you. As with any weight loss program check with your Doctor first!

do NOT buy if you prefer new package!!! They keep sending you old one!!! Cat is NOT included :-)
by Jill (1 out of 5 stars)

I bought this item many times, but to be honest I don't really like the taste for the old package, it makes me feel uncomfortable inside my mouth and really thirsty after drinking. I did not drink it very often even though I know it's easy for lunch (I can drink it quickly and keep working during "eating") and healthy.

But on 11/13/2018 I received one pack of the new package, things had been changed, the new package really taste good, so after I finished that pack, I began to subscribe 3 packs/ 2 months, and my nightmare begins : (

On 12/09/2018, I subscribed 3 packs / 2 months, after two days, I got the big box with 3 packs of soylent. But they are all on old package. I'm surprised so I contacted with the Amazon live chat, the representative is very nice (at least at that point of time, I believe so), she/he told me it's Amazon's mistake, she/he will help me with the refund, and it's "GUARANTEE" that if I purchased again I will receive new packages soylent.

So I just place the order again on 12/12/2018 (since I cannot subscribe and had to buy for one time, Amazon gave me $5 for price difference).

And guess what, I received the old package again on the next day. I thought there might be something weird so I just contact with Amazon live chat. This time the representative told me she/he can help me with the refund, and apologies about the same issue happened on the same customer twice. She/he will send this issue to special team and make sure no customer will meet the same issue.

And I asked her/him, should I buy another 3 packs if I can receive the new package? The representative said (in general) "yes, I guarantee you will receive the new package".

As she/he said "We trust our customer", I also trust Amazon, so I bought another 3 packs again.

And just today (12/15/2018), I received the old package AGAIN!!!

I really feel tired to play with this "GUARANTEE" game again and again and again. I just contact the customer representative, and ask for refund. Left this 1 star review to warn other customers, be careful if you prefer to get the new package.

Also, I'm really confused about the meaning of word "GUARANTEE", as you can see, I'm a Chinese, and English is not my first language, I might have some misunderstanding about the meaning of "GUARANTEE".

In my mind, I think "GUARANTEE" is a word which should not say to someone else easily, because it means I (the one who say GUARANTEE) will make sure it will happen, almost 100% chance.

I do understand that sometimes "bug" might happen, but if it's not a rare "bug", I should NOT tell others I GUARANTEE.

But Amazon's representative told me "I GUARANTEE you will receive new package" 3 times (the first order I made two conversation and both representative said "GUARANTEE", the second order I made one conversation and she/he said "GUARANTEE"), and none of the other 2 orders is the new package.

Even though I got the refund without any trouble, and I don't need to return them (the soylent is not returnable), but I do really care about whether in Amazon's culture, "GUARANTEE" means something might or might not happen, just always tell customer "GUARANTEE" to make them happy.

The last conversation with Amazon's live chat today (12/15/2018), the representative told me she/he asked the special team to investigate the issue, and will send me an email with the final result, I hope I do get the real solution and also, the meaning of the word "GUARANTEE" instead of an "apologies template".

Basically i haven't eaten food for 1.5 YEARS thx to Soylent!
by k3NnYg (5 out of 5 stars)
July 5, 2017

First off thanks to Amazon for now giving me free same day!

Ive been on Soylent for a year and a half! I simply cant thank Soylent enough. Two words. Life changing. Im a busy IT professional and I have always hated vegetables to boot. This resulted in eating like utter $&@! my entire life. If the recipe was more than push 3 on the microwave i didnt eat it. Low energy. Lots of cakes and sweets. Poor nutrition. I was honestly on a path to disease and death. Got sick yearly. Soylent is an actual meal REPLACEMENT. Not suppliment. Ensure etc are supliments. 400 calories and one fith of ur daily nutrition in each one. I was never fat really because ive always had a fast metabolism but i was chubby for sure. Got sick a lot. Low energy. I mean at times so low I felt as tho it was an effort to breathe. Always hungry too but no appetite because i ate $&@!. Truly poor quality of life. I knew it was because of my diet. I always ate terribly even as a kid. Im 48 now. But I neither had the time nor taste to eat better.

Along comes Soylent a year and a half ago(as far as when i started...its been around slightly longer) I almost exclusively drink Soylent and have for over a year! I eat maybe a couple times a week. Sometimes two or three weeks. Not because I force myslef to btw. I prefer to drink a Soylent over eating! I eat more for social reasons than anything. Sometimes I go weeks without eating. I PREFER Soylent. When I do eat it's because of a craving and usually its a top notch restaurant with my girl or friends. On rare occasions its because i just want something warm and solid and evem then i go all out. Thats so rare though. The little I do eat it really doesnt matter how bad for me the food I choose is either. So i go for it when i do eat. Imagination run wild and for pure sensation without guilt:) Wether its sugary fatty whatever. It doeant make a difference because the rest of the time im taking in what i need to without the bad stuff i shouldnt be.

Benefits.....higher energy level. I dont need to drink anything with caffeine anymore. Not coffee or soda or anything caffeinated. Body fat of 16% and a flat stomach. NEVER had a flat stomach my whole life! NEVER hungry. The HUGE amount of time I save. If you add up how much time u spend buying food..... Thinking about what to buy. Putting it away. Thinking about what to cook or where to eat. Cooking it. Eating it. Cleaning up. Driving to restaurants. Driving to buy it. Checkput Lines. Filling carts. Deciding on restaurants. Total time you save a year according to my own personal calculations is 40 days a year or 960 hours! Thats a really conservative eatimate imo. Thats about 2.63 hours a day! What could you do with an extra 960 hours? 40 days, more than a month or almost 6 weeks? A great deal im sure.

The taste is neutral or tastless(I jave not tried the flavors other than coffee and that was good but i just dont need flavoring) Its bland yes. When u drink it seconds later u could forget u just had something in ur mouth. Why is this a good thing? Well imagine your favorite flavor. Now imagine eating it everyday multiple times a day. It being neutral you never get sick of it. And i dont. When i need calories i crave Soylent now. My brain has re-associated and adapted that mechanism of survival to crave Soylent to obtain my nutrition and calories when they are needed.

I should mention that my bathroom habits haven't changed;) I always get asked that when i tell people I basically dont eat or only eat a cpl times a week. Dont ask me how a liquid goes in and a solid comes out because i cant quite figure that out either. I assume it has to do with fiber but i really dont know. Calorie for calorie its cheaper and contains better nutrition. Food for me is recreational now. Think about ur life. When u eat how often is it something thats amazing and exactly what u want. More often than not its whatever is convenient and that doesn't usually go along with great for u. Its somethimg u just have to do. Mostly. Well i ONLY eat when its amazing and the rest of the time i'm getting perfect nutrition and not wasting time doing something mundane for lack of a better word:) People always say to me.....eating is something thats such a pleasure tho...dont u miss it? Yeah it absolutely can be. But honestly when ur at Mcdonalds is that a true pleasure or experience in taste? No. Not for me. My blood work reflects my sentiments btw and went from extremely high triglycerides and cholesterol to everything being perfectly in line! I used to suffer from occasionally bouts of depression. Nothing serious. Never needed meds or anything. More from always being exhausted and fighting just to do my daily grind. That hasnt happened since i switched to Soylent! Not once. Not once! Coincidence? Maybe. But nutrition is very much connected to low energy and depression.

Soylent..... from the heart, I cannot thank u enough. You not only changed my life, you gave me one. After a year and a half I cannot say enough, thank you enough, nor recommend you enough.

Loyal customer for life........

Note: Drink water! It takes more water to digest it then it contains so you still should drink water! May also wanna take a cpl fiber pills occasionally. The water is a must tho. Thats probably why i read one review saying his energy level dropped. Dehydration.

This is what you have been searching for!

I decided to try Soylent after hearing about it on my favorite podcast (Stuff You Should Know), and I am so glad I did! I am a busy young professional who is moderately health obsessed. I do normally indulge in a weekly cheat meal, but I found myself eating out WAY too often (several times a week) when I started a very competitive and time consuming job. Once I didn't have the time to meticulously prepare everything I ate, I began gaining weight and losing energy.

I put off trying Soylent because I am a picky eater and wasn't willing to drop $40 on something I may not be able to take two sips of, but I decided to take the risk. I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID! I am now drinking half a bottle of Soylent every morning for breakfast and the other half around 3pm, and it has completely changed my diet for the better. I am no longer starving throughout the day and binging on takeout when I finally get the chance to eat. I am losing weight, saving money, and finally getting back to my regular workouts. I wouldn't drink it for every meal, but being able to satisfy my hunger throughout the day with Soylent, a nutrition bar, and fresh fruits and veggies allows me to take the time to cook a simple healthy meal for dinner when I get home, and gives me easy energy for a quick workout in the morning.

The taste is pretty bland. Not as delicious as ice cream, but you don't have to force yourself to drink it like a protein shake. I actually enjoy it and find myself looking forward to drinking it every morning.

THANK YOU, SOYLENT!

Stop thinking about it, and just try it. You won't regret it.

Perfect for late night gamers
by Nicole (5 out of 5 stars)
July 11, 2017

Update: Rocket bottles are better than rounded square bottles, but the bottle adds a weird flavor to the drink sometimes. I fix this by pouring into a 14oz double steel wall insulated cup I bought from Walmart for $6. It stays colder, so it's been a solution for me, but if you are always taking it with you, this may not work.

Soylent Cacao taste: Finally nailed this down. It's like a cross between cold Swiss Miss and a chocolate pudding cup that needs to be mixed together because the milk is separating out. I wasn't a huge fan when I tasted it directly from the bottle the first time; it may have had something to do with the texture on my lips and front teeth. Now I use a straw and the texture is never an issue, and I actually look forward to when I drink one because the Cacao flavor is like a dessert. Make sure you shake the bottle really well.

Use: I like this for breakfast if I have to go somewhere and be out for a while -- like an early doctor's appointment. I either drink it as I'm getting ready or in the car so I won't be tempted to get fast food. During the rest of the day, I use Soylent for a light meal, but sometimes I like to eat a piece of fruit with it to make it more substantial. I get the most use out of this product during late nights of gaming. Instead of making freezer crap, I will have a Soylent. Another reviewer mentioned that whenever they're craving something and can't stop, Soylent always solves the problem. I find this to be true for me, too.

Personal motivation for buying: I love fried food and all of the stuff that is horrible for you, but I figured if I had something convenient with a pleasant taste, I would reach for it instead of fast food. I realize cutting down on fatty foods and fast food prepared items will help me become healthier, but when you're hungry and pressed for time it's easy to fall back into old habits. Soylent is my last ditch effort to keep me from going out for food every day, and away from frozen pizza products late at night when I don't want to make tons of noise in the kitchen. So far, it's working.

Has paint remover been rebranded to Soylent??
by Jonathan (1 out of 5 stars)
August 1, 2018

I've been drinking Original and Cacao Soylent for more than a year now and love them. Soylent absolutely failed me on this drink. I regret ordering a case because I wouldn't want even my worst enemy to have to drink this. The flavor is a bit worse than flu medicine, but it has a strong metallic and chemical taste that makes you wonder if it's even safe to consume.

It's Science Not Sorcery
by The Hi Tech Nomad (5 out of 5 stars)

It's just logic I had been interested in Soylent since its first KickStarter campaign.

I knew what my problem was;

I eat at McDonald's two or three times a day sometimes, I like to eat a lot of sweets, and I practically held the saltshaker upside down.

I wanted something that was nutritious, palatable, and could use consistently.

Protein shakes were not being answer because they were not balanced.

Let's not even talk about if I tried to stayed on energy drinks for more than a couple of days.

The shakes they give to people in the hospital have way too many calories.

Then came Soylent.

Now I substitute one or two meals a day with it.

I've lost weight, my A1C is down, my blood pressure is down and I have a tremendous amount of energy.

I don't want this to sound like a bad infomercial.

You yourself know if you are suffering from being overweight or high blood pressure or prediabetes or all three; you know what the issue is...

It's what you're eating!

I know I could obtain the same results by eating kale or exercising or eating macrobiotic food, but that's not me.

I am mentally lazy, I don't have time and I'm not going to take the time to do that.

Unscrewing a bottle and drinking it is about all the mental energy and time I am willing to expend.

The results have been spectacular for me.

I take it (or ship it) to myself on vacations and I get more vacation time because I have more energy.

Do your own research, do your own logic and maybe give Soylent a try.

I am happy to discuss the subject with you at any time
