Not so long ago, it seemed like Soylent was improving the inefficient daily process of "eating" a "variety" of "meals." That time could be spent coding, people! The company's shakes and bars offer a dystopian vision of nutrition and food consumption that has achieved popularity in Silicon Valley circles, despite being named after a fictional processed food product made out of human remains.
Unlike Soylent Green, though, Soylent's new snack bars give people uncontrollable diarrhea.
The bars were almost too good to be true: 12.5% of your daily nutritional requirements, vegan, low-glycemic, quality macros, full of micronutrients, destroy your GI tract, and make you poop uncontrollably. Good thing you can code on the toilet!
Customers took to a Reddit thread to share their Soylent-induced bodily function woes, including intense nausea, frequent vomiting, and bad cases of the runs.
