I am so very excited to finally review the SodaStream for you guys! I love Soda, but I hate how unhealthy it is for you, and how horrible the bottles and cans are for the environment! I also hate that my kids want to choose soda over juice or water. Sadly, I used to understand that choice way too much. I am a carbonation addict! Most of everything I drink has to be carbonated.
I received a very wonderful package from SodaStream to review for you guys. It included the SodaStream unit along with the following syrups: Cranberry Raspberry, Black Current Pear, Cola Free, Cola, Ginger Ale, Diet Lemon Lime, Diet Pink Grapefruit and Root Beer.
I love how easy it is to create soda! Although it took me quite a while to fully understand how to make it. When I first used it I thought that you were supposed to push the button 3 times or until you hear a loud pop. You are actually supposed to push it until it pops a third time for the normal amount of fizz, but since I LOVE carbonation I do this a fourth time just to make it extra fizzy. Once you get the hang of adding enough carbonation it really is a breeze and only takes about a minute to carbonate the water and add your favorite flavor.
SodaStream not only makes syrup for all you favorite flavors of soda, but also makes their own flavors that are different but really awesome. My favorite flavor had to be Root Beer, it tasted just like any other Root Beer I have had but I didn't have to feel guilty about drinking it.
So why choose SodaStream? Not only is the soda you make with a SodaStream healthier then soda you buy that is already made, but by making it you save bottles, cans, and yes even money. The average American drinks almost 600 cans of soda a year. As most people don't recycle most of these cans end up in our landfills. SodaStream comes with a bottle that not only keeps your soda carbonated for a long time, but that is also reusable so you can reduce your use of cans. After your soda is made you can also pour it into your favorite cup or bottle.
Worried you wont like the flavors SodaStream has to offer? You can add just about any flavor to your carbonated water. Just today I added some of my MiO to flavor my water and I loved it! You can use your favorite syrup, or even a mixture of syrups to make your own flavor or soda!
One thing I will warn you about is to make sure you only carbonate water then add your flavor. If you carbonate juice or something else other then water you will be cleaning for weeks. Make sure you warn everyone else in your house as well, I can't tell you how many people have told me that they had ruined their kitchen by carbonating things other then water.
I really love my SodaStream, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative to soda. You can find SodaStream and all of their products on their website here.
