It's about 1/3 the price of Soylent and I saw good things about it on Reddit.
After you try it, please post what you think about it and how long it took to receive.

Typical american lunch = blt + chips + soda.
Soylents are high protein for most non-bodybuilders.

I ordered it late at night last Thursday and it arrived on Saturday afternoon, although it shipped from Brooklyn and I live super close from it. I ordered the chocolate and I like it much, much better than Soylent. I don't care much for the nutrition content other than calories. The texture is very similar to a protein shake and tastes better too imo.

Yeah, I haven't actually looked at the nutrition profile of soylent, but I'd be surprised if it's worse in terms of macro nutrients than the typical American lunch.

They match the FDA daily recommended values.
