Soda Stream Review + Giveaway

My husband is a soda (we call it pop) loving fool! I quit drinking it while I was pregnant with Max, and I don't drink it as often, but even I still enjoy a glass every now and then. The problem we seem to run into, is that we can't drink a whole bottle before it goes flat. And I always feel so guilty throwing out the rest. It is such a waste of money, that, frankly, we don't have.
SodaStream sent me a Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker to review. I was so excited to try it out, but, honestly, I was a little scared of the CO2 Cartridge, so I had to wait until my hubs came home to try it out. I'm such a chicken! The Fountain Jet came with two Carbonating Bottles, and a ton of SodaMix Flavors! Soda Stream was so generous. My husband and I had a little SodaStream tasting party just to try all the flavors. The machine is so easy to use, and even I can make it!
  1. Fill the Carbonating Bottle to the line with cold water.
  2. Screw the bottle into the Fountain Jet
  3. Press the button with quick, firm pushes.
  4. After 3 beeps, unscrew bottle
  5. Pour 1 capfull of SodaMix flavor
  6. Shake gently and you are done!!

It's that easy! And the thing I love is that The Carbonating Bottles hold 1 liter, so we don't waste as much. And each SodaMix flavor has enough to make 12 liters (that's 33 cans!) This is really a great way to save some money. I bet you are wondering how the soda tastes. It's actually really good! Of course, it doesn't taste just like the name brand sodas, but they taste like real pop. My favorite so far is the Orange Mango and Root Beer. Hubby's favorite is Orange. And I really like having the Fountain Mist (think Sprite) around for upset tummies. AND, if that wasn't enough, they have flavors for flavored sparkling water, which is great for me, since I don't drink all that much pop anymore. I will definitely recommend the SodaStream Fountain Jet as a FABULOUS holiday gift idea.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ginger Ale, Cola and Cranberry Raspberry... although, to be completely honest, I have one of these beasts and completely despise the SodaMix syrups this company makes. The "diet" flavors definitely taste "diet." The normal flavors often taste a bit "diet" as well. The only good syrup they had was apple, which was discontinued a few years back. What do I do? I either drink the seltzer water straight, mix it with some Torani syrup (Italian soda, anyone?) or create my own syrup. My fav is my own homemade ginger syrup which, as a bonus, generates leftover ginger slices that can get baked into homemade crystalized ginger candy.
