Soylent Café Vanilla review





Decided to try some Soylent. It has led to a few jokes from friends, most of whom are Baby Boomer or Gen-X. Actually, it has led to variations on a single joke. It's people. I haven't actually seen the movie but I have seen the various jokes.



Here's a couple of links about the movie:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soylent_Green

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070723/



Soylent Green is a 1973 American dystopian thriller film directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Charlton Heston and Leigh Taylor-Young. Edward G. Robinson appears in his final film.



In case you don't feel like watching the video or listening to my rambling, I didn't care for the this flavor. Vanilla or its extract isn't listed as an ingredient. Tasted too much of the coffee. I like the caffeine in coffee but not the taste. I end up negating the benefits of coffee by adding things to hide the taste.



I think it is a pretty good value compared to a 16 ounce Starbucks coffee drink. More nutritious.



I think it is a bold move to take a product to market with a name that has some negative connotations for a large section of the US population.



I checked Soylent's Twitter and website and no mention of the movie. I feel sorry for the social media people that probably have to go through and remove all the thousands "It's people!" jokes.



I think Soylent should take it a step further and make green drink, powder or bar. Maybe in 2023.



The label says "Produced with genetic engineering" So, if it is people at least it's better people.
