SODASTREAM REVIEW & GIVE-A-WAY

The LUCKY winner of the SodaStream give-a-way is Entry #41 Morgan Paige! Congrats!!! I want to thank ALL OF YOU who signed up and a HUGE thanks to SodaStream for sponsoring this awesome give-a-way!!!

*GIVE-A-WAY CLOSED 05/11/2010*




As a lot of you know I am a huge soda drinker (or "pop" as we call it). So when SodaStream offered to send us one of their SodaStream Machines to review I couldn't wait to get it! They sent us one of their Pure Soda Starter Kits which included 1 Pure Home Soda Maker, 1 60 liter Carbonator, 2 Carbonating Bottles, and then they included 9 different flavors of their SodaMix bottles for us to try as well (kit usually only includes 2 SodaMix bottles of your choice).

So if you've never heard of a SodaStream Machine before I will tell you a little more about it. With the SodaStream Machine you can turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds and you can make soda in a few more! It's so simple to use. You take the machine, screw in the carbonator, add cold tap water to the carbonating bottle, screw it onto the machine, pump the handle a few short times and you instantly have sparkling water. If you want soda you take the bottle of carbonated water off, and then just add one of the SodaMix flavors to it and wa-la you have soda! I am telling you it is that easy!!! Everyone should have one of these machines in their kitchen to make fresh soda whenever they want! It is so fun to use and there is a flavor for everyone in the family.

Another great thing about the SodaStream Machine is that you will protect the environment when you use this machine. There are no heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. I know how many cans of pop we go through here (we do recycle them, but we have so many) just think of how much you can save if you make your own! Each bottle of concentrated SodaMix contains enough syrup to make about 12 liters or 33 cans of fresh, delicious soda. There are over 30 different flavors of regular, diet, and caffeine-free SodaMix's to choose from! There is no high-fructose corn syrup in regular flavors and they use Splenda instead of aspartame in diet flavors!

Jace has asked me everyday since we got the SodaStream if we can make some. I promise you your family will love this. He thinks he is big stuff making our own soda. My husband also has played with this almost daily. He loves the Diet Rootbeer they sent us. Jace loves the Cola and Lemon Lime which is similar to Sprite. I have been drinking the Energy Drink which is similar to Red Bull. It's so great to be able to make this right when I need a boost of caffeine!


Another great thing about it is there is no mess or clean up. We have been filling the bottle with tap water and putting it in the fridge until we are ready to make our soda. Then you take it out when your ready, add the carbonation and SodaMix flavor of choice and our soda is ready to drink. The bottles also come with caps so you can put the unused portion in the fridge until you are ready to drink again.

They also sent us their MyWater Flavor Essence Variety 3-pack which you add to flavor your water. It comes with Orange, Berry and Lemon Lime and they are so good. It just gives your water a hint of flavor. I have also been drinking so much more water since we got this machine. I am not a fan of plain water, but I love the fizz and hint of flavor you can make with this machine! There is a SodaStream for everyone, with a variety of colors and silhouettes, you'll be sure to find a soda maker to match any decor and budget.
