WATCH: The Circa team taste-tests Coffiest
This could be your breakfast on the go
More than half of Americans skip breakfast at least once a week, according to a study conducted by Instantly.
So it makes sense that Soylent, the company behind that soy meal replacement drink your friends in Palo Alto are obsessed with, saw an opportunity for a breakfast-specific product.
Yes, there's caffeine
Coffiest is Soylent's first attempt at a drink aimed at the morning crowd. Like the flagship product, Coffiest contains 400 calories and promises the same nutritional value of a full meal.
Coffiest also promises the same amount of caffeine as a strong cup of coffee. So, bonus!
'Why would anyone drink this?'
But is the taste worth making this a part of your daily routine? I personally didn't mind it. I think normal Soylent (for reference, I drink normal Soylent almost every day) tastes like stale cookies and cream, and Coffiest tastes more like stale coffee and cream.
But when I asked my colleagues to try it, I was the only one who liked it. Beyond the disgusted facial reactions, coworkers said it tasted like "butt" and "sadness." One person did say she didn't hate it -- so I'll take my victories where I can get them.
If you're interested in trying out Coffiest for yourself, you can buy a box of 12 bottles for $39 (although you save five percent if you sign up for a monthly subscription) on Soylent's website.
