The day had finally arrived! The day our family would remember for years to come....The day we had the opportunity to try out our own SodaStream home soda maker! The poor UPS man never stood a chance! The kids eagerly anticipated their first glass of home made soda!
Thank you to the kind folks at SodaStream for choosing our family to review this amazing product!
It was almost like Christmas morning in April! We had been excited and ready to give SodaStream a whirl ever since we saw a late Saturday morning infomercial!
The initial appeal to me was as always....cutting corners on expenses. Every small way you can save adds up! I could not believe the amount of product we were sent, and refills are readily available and affordable!
Sweet Baby K still a little young for soda had fun as well!
Once we got the soda maker put together which truly was a cinch! We started cranking out the soda's! I could not get over how simple the process was! Fill up the SodaStream liter bottles with cold tap water connect to the soda maker, carbonate and in less than 30 seconds we had a fresh liter of carbonated water to flavor as we wished! Flat soda? No problem here!
With so many flavors to chose from we opted for an old favorite! Root beer! From our kitchen sink! To be perfectly honest, we are not the biggest soda drinkers... but my kids are kids and look forward to a treat, and an occasional cold beverage always hits the spot! Not having to run to the convenience store to tame a Coke craving will be sublime!
Curious about nutritional information (and also my dental assistant persona gnawing at me) I was pleased with what I found! I found that I could indulge my children with SodaStream products without too much guilt and visions of rampant caries! Though thorough teeth brushing will still be required! "Awww!" Sorry kids!
I found this nutritional guide on the SodaStream website!
See for yourself!
*How does SodaStream nutrition stack up against national brands?
With a SodaStream home soda maker and over 50 delicious regular, diet and caffeine-free soda mix 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.
|SodaStream Lemon Lime||36||9g||9g||25mg||0mg|
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)*
My mind also wandered around the other convenient points of SodaStream! As I mentioned we have recently bought our first trailer for camping and what a fun product to take along! I mean really! How nice will it be to One: Save money on the soda that you purchase for a camping trip! Two: The space! The space you could save in your cooler and elsewhere!
I love this product already!
Did you know that Soda Stream is an "Active Green" product! meaning each time you chose to use your SodaStream you are literally improving the conditions of our planet! Reducing store bought plastic beverage bottles, thus creating less plastic waste! I can get behind that!
Taste tests have proven (in our home anyway:) that SodaStream is a must have! At only 25 cents per can and over fifty flavors to choose from you will save time and money daily! My husband arrived home and was greeted by his own home made Ginger Ale...Even he was impressed!
On Saturday as a long day of catching up with yard and housework lay ahead of us, we whipped up an energy drink which tasted just like Red Bull! We never left the house or spent any money while getting our chores done!
During the week I live by the 4HB diet...no sugar! I was a little bummed that we got our Soda Stream Genesis mid week! (Though I did try a few small samples) I was relieved to find that I could create my own sugar free seltzer with the MyWater essence flavors! The perfect treat after the treadmill!
While it has only been a week in review! We love our SodaStream Genesis! I was able to find all the supplies, refill tanks and fun flavors we would need at our local Kohl's! Money saving! Economical! Fun! Super easy! No messy cleanup! Are you curious!
