Soylent 2.0:

Earlier today, Soylent announced the 2.0 release of the company's staple meal, which will now come in ready-to-eat in bottles as opposed to the previous powder mix:

"Today we are thrilled to announce the debut of the newest product in our line of nutritionally-complete staple foods: Soylent 2.0.

Soylent 2.0 is designed from the ground-up to provide the vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, and protein that the body needs - all in a convenient, ready-to-drink package."

I've had my eye on Soylent since The Verge did their first piece covering the company & their food-replacement about a year ago. Up until now, the barrier to entry has seemed slightly too high for me, but with today's announcement that's changed.

Without putting too much thought into it (not wanting to talk myself out of the decision), I've ordered their minimum of 12 bottles of the stuff at $34, which will ship out to me sometime mid-October.

I'm interested in trying out it's taste and nutrition, and being able to replace what would otherwise be a shoddy meal with the kind of nutrients that I need is an appealing idea to me.

By October I'll probably have forgotten I made the order entirely, so it'll be a nice surprise when it shows up.
