    Norm Drinks Soylent, Day 2

    For the second day of soylent drinking, Norm begins to experiment with adding flavor enhancing ingredients to his life-sustaining beverage. Soylent doesn't recommend switching to a soylent-only diet immediately, so we're still in the easing in period. Plus, a special guest appearance by a Tested family member we haven't seen in a while!

    Norm Drinks Soylent, Day 1

    Tested reader Luke sent over a week's supply of Soylent for us to test! Unfortunately, this is the old Soylent formula, which isn't representative of the current product being sold--we'll wait until we can buy the latest batch before an official review. But we can't let good Soylent go to waste, so Norm is committing to a week of living off of this future food.
