Soda Stream- Review & Giveaway



I have a guilty indulgence. I love soda. Although I don't like all the chemicals that are added, I do enjoy a great soda every once in a while. Unfortunately, I usually feel bloated and gassy afterwards. I recently found Soda Stream- a company that lets you make your own soda- and without junk like high fructose corn syrup!




I had the opportunity to review the Soda Stream and I want to tell you all about it!
The soda maker is where is all starts! My first thoughts were that this machine would be big and take up a ton of counter space. I was so very wrong! The above design, the jet, is the best seller, and is only about 6 inches wide! Can you believe that??




The second thing you need is the bottle of carbonator. This bottle slides right into the back of the soda stream maker. This is where that "bubbly" comes from. The carbonator bottles come with the soda stream machines, and once empty, you can exchange at several different retail stores. You can make over 100 liters of soda with this bottle!!





There are over a dozen different flavors- ranging from the basics to fruity styles and diet choices. There are even water options- for carbonated flavored water! 







-How It Works-

  1. Insert the carbonator into the back of the soda stream machine. Just take off the CO2 lid and twist into the machine.



 

2. Next, you fill the provided reusable bottle with cold water- there is a fill line. 
Screw bottle into front of soda stream.


3. Press the pump button on the front- (promise you won't miss it) Hold it down until it buzzes, and repeat 3 times!

4. VOILA - THAT IS IT!!






-My Thoughts-

I loved the taste. I usually feel overpowered by regular soda, but this does not bother me at all.

Super easy to make- so it is always fresh. I always wonder how old soda on the shelf is before you drink it....

Great design, does not take up much space.

The machine comes in the above color, white or red. very cool.

No more lugging around bottles or cans- this is so much simpler! Each flavor bottle makes about 12 liters or 33 cans!

No high fructose corn syrup in regular flavors.

No Aspartame in diet flavors.

Better on the environment- no more wasted bottles and cans!



- Win It-

One winner will receive a Soda Stream start up package! 
Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit (approx. $100 retail value.) It includes the winner's choice of black/silver, white or red/silver Fountain Jet, CO2 to make over 100 liters of soda, 2 reusable carbonating bottles, a sample pack of flavors, and 3 full-sized flavors of the winner's choice.

I've been looking at this site for a while. It's just a matter of talking dear husband into it. ;)

I'd like to try the Pete's Choice because I'm such a Dr. Pepper freak. Somthing not mentioned yet - You can control the amount of "fizz" in your drink. I like that because sometimes too many bubbles are not a good thing for me.

I also see that they can be purchased at Kohl's in my area which means I'll be going in to look at those babies. I love the red one!
