Soda Stream



As a Bzzagent, I was given a Soda Stream to try and review in exchange for my honest opinion. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I know the directions say to ONLY carbonate water, but I CAN'T STOP! Teas, lemonades, fruit drinks, juices--I even made a carbonated wine cooler with a mixture of wine and Koolaid! Hi brow stuff, I know, but, seeing as I'm not High Falootin', it worked!

Of course, the place with the MOST selection is their site (Soda Stream) , but locally, I have found items at Bed Bath and Beyond (where you can also get the CO2) as well as Best Buy (Who Knew!?!?!?!).

Making carbonated water and soft drinks is simple! Turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds, with no clean-up. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time. No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With a variety of colors and silhouettes, you'll be sure to find a soda maker to match with any decor.


25 cents per liter of sparkling water! 25 cents per (equivalent) can of soda! HUGE value.


No more flat, wasted soda (Alexander is CONSTANTLY sneaking in and shaking things up....don't know why, but he has made it his mission! 


Everyone in the family will enjoy their favorite flavor with SodaStream's great tasting sodamix — over 30 to choose from! Enjoy traditional favorites such as Cola, Lemon-Lime, Orange and Root Beer, or mixers, including Ginger Ale and Tonic in both regular and diet. Also, be sure to try one of our delicious fruit creations, including Orange Mango, Diet Pink Grapefruit or Cranberry-Raspberry.

How does SodaStream nutrition stack up against national brands?
With a SodaStream home soda maker and over 30 delicious regular, diet and caffeine-free sodamix flavors to choose from, you'll enjoy freshly made, great tasting soda that fits your health and diet. Regular flavors contain no high-fructose corn syrup, and diet flavors are sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener, not aspartame.

All SodaStream regular sodamix uses a mixture of Splenda® and sugar. Diet flavors are sugar-free,  sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener. Comparison is based on 8 fl. oz. serving size (0.34 fl. oz. of SodaStream sodamix per 8 fl. oz. of water).

Seriously, what is NOT to like! I highly recommend it, and am looking forward to even MORE experimentation! Can't wait to order the stainless steel carbonating bottle , and am definitely going to increase my bottle stash, as there are different soda types in my house.


Also looking forward to trying the Sparkling Naturals line  to see if the Ginger Ale measures up to my favorite brand--and I am INTRIGUED by the Black Currant Pear flavor ...


EESH! So many flavors, so little time!
