At the moment we only have boring old crisps, coke and chocolate bars that have been scientifically formulated to be as addictive as possible, available, imperishable, and with completely disposable packaging -- where absolutely no account is taken for how much harm these products do to you.

These days there's a whole community of life-questioning meal replacement packages designed to claim back those hours in the week wasted hand-preparing meals, socializing, chewing, washing up dishes and shopping, such as these crowd-funded substances:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soylent_(meal_replacement)
https://huel.com/ <--- this one is British

We need to get a couple of these brands in stock (including their SF-themed brochures and sales materials), instead of the unhealthy crisps, for hackers to broaden their culinary life-hacking experiences. Indeed, if widely deployed in society, this tech could be taken back to the production lines and offices in order to cut down the lunch hour to a four minute gulp and therefore drive up productivity by 12% on an eight our day -- not even counting the work wasted by the labour hoarding of canteen staff and the unnecessary promotion of unhealthy products which cause a burden on the NHS.

The stock of Huel has been bought. Now we need a taste testing and review. People are free to try and write reviews if I'm not here (subject to, say, a £2 donation to DoES per portion)

The rule is you can't drink the meal replacement substance unless it replaces a meal. It's not dessert.

Given that we have the Huel now and anyone is welcome to eat it if they can bring themselves to do it can we close this now?

If we got rid of the Huel we'd have a shelf upon which to put foodstuffs people might eat. #JustSayin'
