Soylent Now a Successful Drink
When the 1970’s sci-fi Soylent Green (starring a tree museum visiting Charlton-from-my-dead-hand-Heston) promoted Soylent as a tasty treat secretly made from cadavers, who would have thought it would actually become a meal replacement drink?
But thanks to a start me up and don’t stop campaign in the UK, people can now guzzle Soylent anytime and anywhere. With a distinctively chalky, kind of off meaty taste that definitely takes some getting used to, consumers are queuing up to try this latest meal alternative.
According to Malt Steenburger, head of Soylent For All,
“Yes, of course it’s different. But Soylent is the most nutritious drink you can buy. And the best thing is it’s remarkably nutritious. So you can skip meals whenever you need and not miss out.”
So far, uptake of this new product has been moderate but steady. And far from being a marketing disaster, people seem to be attracted to the ghoulish idea that drinking the liquified remains of the deceased is a good idea.
“We’re expected a triple fold yield increase in the next quarter”, Steenburger added. “There’s nothing like Soylent on the market. So we’re confident that with time we’ve got a contender that’ll give Coke a run for its money.”
Strong marketing and improved methods in reprocessing human bodies to achieve a better taste will decide if Soylent has the chops to become a household name.
