SodaStream Review & Giveaway



I recently had the opportunity to review a SodaStream Home Soda Maker.  I have been wanting to try this for awhile but I was afraid to invest the money in it and then have it sit on the counter like so many of my "bright ideas" do.  I was completely thrilled when I received my package. 


It included the SodaStream Jet model Soda Maker, 8 full sized flavors, 3 Mywater flavor Essence, 6 sample flavors, carbonator, & a carbonating bottle.


I received...
Ginger Ale Sparkling Natural 25.4 fl. oz. (25 servings)
Black Currant & Pear Sparkling Natural 25.4 fl. oz (25 servings)
Root Beer 16.9 fl. oz (50 servings)
Cola Free 16.9 fl. oz (50 servings)
Cranberry-Raspberry 16.9 fl. oz (50 servings)
Green Tea Pomegranate Peach 16.9 fl. oz (50 servings)
Diet Lemon-Lime 16.9 fl. oz (50 servings)
Diet Pink Grapefruit 16.9 fl. oz (50 servings)
Orange Mywater Flavor 1.35 fl. oz. (20 servings) 
Raspberry Mywater Flavor 1.35 fl. oz. (20 servings)
Lemon-Lime Mywater Flavor 1.35 fl. oz. (20 servings)
Energy sample 1.7 fl. oz.
Diet Pink Grapefruit sample 1.7 fl. oz
Lemon-Lime sample 1.7 fl. oz.
Orange sample 1.7 fl. oz.
Diet Cola sample 1.7 fl. oz.
Root Beer sample 1.7 fl. oz.


The soda maker was so easy to set up.  The instructions were simple to read and understand.  I basically just had to take it out of the packaging, screw in the carbonator, & I was ready to make soda!  I filled the one Liter carbonating bottle to marked line with water, screwed it in to the maker, & pushed 3 times on top.


After it made a loud noise, I unscrewed it and added the flavoring.  TADA!  In less than 30 seconds I made my own soda. 


It is so easy to use, my kids have been making soda themselves non-stop.  I am happy to allow them to have caffeine free soda and this machine makes it even cheaper.  My husband & myself only drink pop and nothing else.  We live on Mtn. Dew and SodaStream makes a similar flavor called Fountain Mist that I needed to try.  So, I went to Meijer & bought a bottle. It tastes like Diet Mtn Dew.  We can save alot by using SodaStream.  There will be no more lugging in cases of pop every week & storing them.  There won't be a ton of cans to smash and recycle.  There are so many flavors available to try.  My favorite so far is Ginger Ale.  It is absolutely delicious.  I thought the Orange & Root Beer flavors tasted like diet because they have a little aftertaste but my kids love them.  I just realized the flavors are made with Splenda.  All of the flavors I received are ok but I'm going to buy other flavors.  My kids love all of them so I will continue to buy what they like as well.  Overall, I really like this product because of the money we will save.  One 16.9 fl. oz. bottle of flavor makes 12 liters of soda.  They retail for $4.99 each.   That sure beats buying soda in the stores.

I would dearly love to own a Soda Stream but I have decided to no longer participate in Rafflecopter because of the overwhelming amount of places that I am asked to like and join that I have no interest in liking and joining. Good luck to all of you guys. I guess this one is just not for me.
