Our soda-drinking lives will never be the same…
I wouldn’t classify our family as huge soda drinkers.  We enjoy the Italian soda we keep on hand, but never drink more than a glass a day, and maybe once a month I’ll pick up a 2 liter of soda at the store.  Nevertheless, we were so excited when, a couple weeks ago, we received this cool new gadget to review!
SodaStream is an eco-friendly way to enjoy your soda.  By making your soda at home using reusable bottles you are saving money while saving our environment.  To make soda using the SodaStream you simply fill a SodaStream reusable bottle with cold tap water, screw the bottle into your SodaStream machine, press the carbonation button, and the water is infused with CO2.  Once the water is carbonated you can add some of SodaStream’s sodamix flavor, mywater essence flavor, or simply enjoy the sparkling water.
We have absolutely loved the SodaStream and have been very pleased with how easy it is to use. 
Here are some of the great things about the SodaStream:
  • You always have soda available.  Having a party?–got it covered.  Need a refreshing treat?–It’s always on hand.
  • The SodaStream is portable!  If it’s your turn to bring the soda, just bring along your SodaStream and make your friends jealous.
  • Doesn’t use electricity or batteries!
  • No High Fructose Corn Syrup!!!
  • No aspartame!!!
  • Carbonate your soda as much or as little as you’d like.
  • Can save you money.
  • Less waste.
  • It is just plain fun.
There is only one thing that I don’t like.  All the original flavor syrups have splenda.  At our house we aren’t big fans of artificial sweetners, and I do NOT like the taste of splenda.  With that in mind I’ll tell you that I can’t taste the splenda in the LemonLime flavor, though I can taste it in all the other flavors.  For those of you who feel the same way about artificial sweetners I have some great news!
SodaStream now has a line of “Sparkling Natural” flavors.  No high fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners, and the “juice” flavors contain high % of real fruit juice!  The Sparkling Natural flavors will be available this Spring and I can’t wait to go to the store and get a few.  Did I say “go to the store”?  Why, yes, I did.  As if SodaStream wasn’t cool enough, you can buy SodaStream products locally (including BedBath&Beyond which has their wonderful 20% off coupons) so you don’t have to add shipping costs!
You can also add fruit juice concentrate to your sparkling water and make sparkling juice.  It’s yummy, it’s healthy, and it saves even more money.  There are even youtube videos that teach you how to make your own all natural flavor syrups.  Cool!
