SodaStream is a Dream Come True!

I was recently given the chance to review a SodaStream.  I must say this remarkable product has literally changed my life.  We are a family of soda drinkers, well I admit it-soda addicts.  I must have my daily carbonated beverages or am a force to be reckoned with.

We received the SodaStream starter kit as well as LOTS of different flavor syrups to try out.
I admit, I was sceptical at first.  Could this little machine produce soda equivalent to the "must have" I was use to on a daily basis?  And, furthermore would it taste as good or, anywhere near the same?

The answer is YES!  You might have to play around (which is fun) because the names of their syrup flavors vary; but, when you find the one that is equivalent to 'your soda' it will be so close that i won't matter.  You will save so much time, money, and energy lugging soda from the grocery store and having fun making it at home.  The different is negligible.

I loved the SodaStream at first pump. ; ) The fact that it is an eco-friendly, sustainable product, healthier than regular soda, who could ask for anything more?  And, its sleek design takes up very little space.  It's half the size of our coffee pot.


So, lets get started with the easy directions, shall we?

Step 1:  Fill your container to the fill line with tap water:


Step 2:  Twist the top of the container onto the SodaStream.



Step 3:  Press down three times on the top of the SodaStream to carbonate your tap water.

This is my favorite part.  

Step 5:  Measure out a cap full of the syrup flavor of your choice and pour into the bottle.


They also have yummy flavors like these:


I recommend holding the bottle over the sink when pouring in the syrup.  I don't know if I i poured too fast or got happy with the carbonation button but, it spewed over a few times into the floor.


Step 6:  Screw the lid back on the top of the bottle and shake it lightly back and forth a few times to mix the soda. 

Finally..ta da!


You made your own soda!  Pour it over some ice and try it immediately.  Delish!  It has lower sugar than regular soft drinks and no added artificial flavors or preservatives.  The ingredients are all natural.  The nutritional info is amazing.  Check it out!  Half the calories and carbs of regular soft drinks without sacrificing flavor.

The great folks over at SodaStream is giving one lucky winner the Fountain Jet Soda Lover’s Start-up Kit (approx. $100 retail value.) It includes the Fountain Jet, CO2 makes over 100 liters of soda, 2 reusable carbonating bottles, a sample pack of flavors, AND 3 full-sized flavors of the winner’s choice. WOW!

To enter, leave me a comment stating which flavor of SodaStream's you would like to try.  You can also leave 2 additional (separate entries) if you are a follower. That's three entries if you are a follower!!

The winner will be drawn next Friday, July 1st! Good luck!

Because my dh is a diabetic, I would love any of the diet flavors, especially the cola, and diet mist.

Following through RSS. I've drank enough Pepsi's to float a battleship. Anxious to see if the cola flavor is anywhere close.
