I do I do!! I love soda, something about the fizz just makes me smile. I love water and tea too, especially sweet tea, yum yum. But Something about having a nice cold glass of soda just brings a smile to my face. Now, when I buy soda in the store it's a bit of a pain, you have to think of the cost, the storage, and what to do with the bottles when you're done with them. So I end up with a ton of bottles that need to go back and I have to shove them somewhere until I get a chance to take them back.
So who has heard of the SodaStream?
I have I have! SodaStream is a company that makes At Home soda makers. SodaStream is an "Active Green" product, meaning that consumers are actively reducing their CO2 footprint every time they make soda or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves. Using your own soda make means:
- Less packaging waste from cans and bottles.
- Less pollution caused by transport of bottled beverages.
So last week I received my very own SodaStream!! To say that I was excited is an understatement. I opened it as soon as I got it in the house.
So along with my SodaStream I also got full size bottles of the soda mixes. I got:
Diet Lemon Lime (Like Diet Sprite)
Diet Pink Grapefruit
Pomegranate Peach Green Tea
Cola Free (Like Coke Zero)
Black Currant & Pear
My Water Flavors
So the first thing I noticed was that I didn't have to plug this in, I didn't even have to use batteries. I was so surprised, I kind of just stared at it for a few minutes like "What?!" But anyway.
So what you do is fill the Soda bottle with water up to the fill line, and screw it into your SodaStream:
And then you press the button on top until you hear the buzz. Three buzzes means that your soda is fizzy! You can do more that three or less, but three is good for me!
Then you remove the bottle and choose your flavor! Fill the cap and pour it in!
The first one I made was Pomegranate Peach Green Tea.
What do I think??
I LOVE this thing! It's easy to use and the Soda tastes great. The Cola Free tastes exactly like Coke Zero to me and the Root Beer tastes just like Root Beer, I also think the Diet Lemon Lime is better than Diet Sprite. And it holds the fizz. It's not like when you buy soda and after you open the bottle a few times all the fizz is gone. It is so convenient, no need to go to the store to buy soda, you can make your own!
I would recommend the SodaStream for all the soda lovers out there. It's easy to use, It tastes great and you don't have to worry about storing soda or soda bottles anymore.
Oh! And just a tip:
When I fill the bottle with Water, I put it in the fridge for a while to let it get nice and cold. =)
