There’s a reason we activate three different flavoured plant pods in each of our Pioneer Programs!
Not only does it provide us with fun options when it comes to choosing which formulation to pair with our sofi stick next, but it also allows us to gauge which flavour is most acceptable (dare we say enjoyable when it comes to valerian ) to the widest number of Pioneers for the longest period of time.
We know taste is so very personal and we want you to love your journey with us (or at least be able to stomach it)! We also made a conscious choice to test valerian as our very first plant because we know it is the toughest plant to work with. After all, we are delivering the roots of valerian which are strong in smell - so our strong hope was that if we can get through valerian we should be alright with say…passiflora or chamomile!
And on that note, the winner of the S1 valerian formulation poll is… drum roll … n.03!
n.03 - aka citrus-y grapefruit - was selected the most times by S1 Pioneers as the preferred flavour of our three plant pod formulations, and was voted the least number of times as the least favourite pod (another way of thinking of that is even when it wasn’t the Pioneer’s favourite, they didn’t mind it as much as the one they struggled with!).
While n.01 (mint) wasn’t far behind at all as a majority favourite, it ended up being quite divisive - we seemed to either love it or hate it for the S1 - with over 36.5% of Pioneers selecting it as their very least favourite, just behind formulation n.02 at 37.8%.
It is safe to say that our taste experience is truly unique. Just check out the range of words we used to describe them all throughout the course of the S1!
Thanks to your incredible ongoing feedback, we have chosen n.03 as the flavour we will activate on the sofi system for future sofi pioneers.
Overall, we are so excited to be moving forward with the most “loved” flavour of such a stinky plant and can’t express enough how grateful we are for your perseverance there. The fact that “manure” ranked as one of the most mentioned descriptors of this plant (can anyone spot it in the word cloud?!) is plenty of proof and has definitely made my day - LOL!
Please keep the honest feedback coming, and we can’t wait to explore what passiflora has in store for us!
