Starting today, Philly is one of a dozen cities across the U.S. that can now get Soylent — the soy-based “meal replacement beverage” — delivered on a whim.

The Los Angeles drink company tapped Callowhill’s goPuff as its exclusive retail distribution partner in 11 of the 12 towns thanks to a partnership announced Wednesday.

Here are the places where the beverage will now be available on the go:

  • Austin, TX
  • Bloomington, IN
  • Boston, MA
  • Champaign, IL
  • Chicago, IL
  • Madison, WI
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Portland, OR
  • Seattle, WA
  • State College, PA
  • Washington, DC
  • West Lafayette, IN

The drink is available as single units and 12-pack cases. To entice consumers to try the beverage, goPuff is offering free delivery on first purchases of Soylent single bottles for a limited time.

“We’ve been impressed by Soylent’s explosive growth and are excited to offer goPuff consumers new options for convenient consumption,” Dan Folkman, goPuff’s VP of Business Development, said in a press release.

In July, goPuff had Mayor Jim Kenney drop by to officially open its newly renovated 22,000-square-foot offices. A year prior to that, the company raised a $8.25 Series A to fuel its expansion to other markets. It’s currently up and running in 23 markets across the country.
