Hi! Today I received my first meal of Jake: 1 sample package of Jake Original. Here's my experience:
I heard about Jake from one of my friends. We both like food and new things, so he was glad to share the discovery after finding out about it online. I was immediately hooked on the idea so I checked out Jake and some of the competitors. Jake's website gives plenty of information, looks good and gives the option of ordering a single meal for 4.95E so the decision was easily made. (I'll probably try some of the others at some day)
Ordering is easy, basic stuff. I was a little disappointed that the order was shipped at the end of the week. Although the website does say so, I understood it as that it'd arrive before the end of the week. I ordered on Tuesday, I got the shipping confirmation mail on Friday and the sample arrived this morning (Tuesday).
I was too excited to try it out to wait too long after breakfast so I had it for lunch basically immediately after it arrived. The sample arrived in a brown branded Jake box with a flyer and some information. There's no shaker included so I used my blender, which works just fine.
How's it like
Although I didn't really know what to expect, in a way it's still exactly what I expected. The structure is a bit like porridge or milkshake. The taste reminds me of vanilla cookies. Pretty sweet. After the first sip, I was pretty sure an entire shake would be too much/too filling to handle. However, I still finished the shake pretty easily and didn't feel uncomfortably full after.
It has been about two+ hours since I've had the shake and I still feel satisfied. It's hard to say how much of it is placebo, but I feel like I've done something really healthy which is nice. I've also not had an afternoon crash which is really nice.
I'm completely hyped about this complete food concept and it still feels a little unreal that this goop exists at all. Definitely in for more!
