SodaStream was one of the products I was ecstatic about trying. I had seen it on other blogs wondering, how well does it work? Well, thanks to Jenna over at SodaStream I was sent a SodaStream to review. Along with the SodaStream machine I received 9 SodaMix flavors and 3 Flavor Essence bottles. The flavors i received were: Cola, Diet Cola, Diet Cream Soda, Diet Lemon-Lime, Diet Pink Grapefruit, Lemonade, Root Beer Orange-Mango and Energy. The Flavor Essences i received were Orange, Berry and Lemon-Lime.
With the SodaStream Machine came the Carbon Dioxide tank, 2 reusable 1-liter bottles and, as mentioned above, the flavors. It was very easy to set up, it took just a couple of seconds to screw in the Carbon Dioxide tank to the back of the machine. I filled up one of the bottles with filtered water from the fridge, screwed in in to the machine and pressed the carbonation button. I held it down until i heard the "pop", and i added a little more :)
Everyone agreed to try the Diet Pink Grapefruit mix first, so we added it slowly to the bottle and mixed it. It tasted wonderful! I'm not a "diet soda" drinker, but they sure are great! So, being me, i opened up each SodaMix, stuck my finger in, and tasted them all before I added them to the carbonated water. All of them had a strong smell and great concentrated taste. I must admit, when I opened the "Enegry" SodaMix I almost creid. lol. It smelled and tasted just like the Monster Energy Drink, and i LOVE Monster.
The machine is extremely easy to set up and use. This is certainly going to be used regularly. We have been making at least two bottles a day. I keep forgetting to chill the water first though. Now, on to looks. I love the look of the SodaStream machine on the counter top, its very sleek and modern. Something you definitely will end up showing off to everyone. The reusable 1-liter bottles are adorable! They have the logo and cute bubbles :) I love making sparkling water, adding the berry flavor essence, and taking it with me when i go walk the dogs!According to the SodaStream website, Each bottle of concentrated SodaMix contains enough syrup to make about 12 liters or 33 cans of fresh, delicious soda. No high-fructose corn syrup in regular flavors. No aspartame in diet flavors. They all are low in calories too. Overall, this product is great, the whole family loves it and it won't go more than 12-hours without being used. I'm extremely thankful for being able to review it. The only down-part is that it gradually losses its fizz, not dramatically though. If you're thinking about buying one, I can honestly say "go for it". I'm very happy!
UPDATE: This is a repost of my original SodaStream Review. SodaStream has been generous enough to join Student Saving Buck's Birthday on Elm Street event and sponsor a SodaStream Jet Fountain Giveaway.
I have, to date, enjoyed the SodaStream very much. Since reviewing it I have tried all flavors and can now say that Diet Lemon-Lime and Lemonade have joined my other favorite flavors. The whole family loves being able to make their own soda and love to mix flavors together very often. They still haven't found a new flavor lol.
