SodaStream Review & Giveaway!

My husband has an addiction to soda pop.  And he can drink a lot of soda if we have it in the house.  But since we have a tight budget we rarely buy it these days.  But I heard about this cool product that allows you to make your own soda.  You've probably seen or heard of it because its becoming quite popular.  Its called the SodaStream!
Mr. Bee told me that he would love to try a SodaStream and save us some money on his soda habit.  So the folks at SodaStream were gracious enough to send us a SodaStream Source to try and I'll have to admit, I am pretty impressed!

 
SodaStream has a few different machines that you can get depending on your needs and they have a very wide range of flavors to use to make your beverages.  And its not just soda pop.  They also carry a selection of lemonades, fruit drinks and flavors for sparkling water as well.


 The SodaStream was pretty easy to use and simple to figure out.  It didn't require much preparation at all.  We just set it up and got started.  


 All you do is fill up the bottle with tap water up to the fill line, insert the bottle, press down on the top till the light indicates the level of carbonation you want, add in your flavor and you're done!



As you can see, Mr. Bee was super excited about making his own soda pop!!!


 The kit came with several different samples of flavors but you can also get large bottles of flavors. The samples that came with the kit each make 1 liter.  The large bottles hold enough flavor mix to make dozens of liters of soda!




One of my favorite things about the SodaStream is the fact that we can use reusable bottles to make our soda and were conserving by not creating tons and tons of waste from plastic soda bottles and pop cans!


So far our favorite flavors are orange and pink grapefruit.  The pink grapefruit tastes just like Ruby Red Squirt which is one of our favorite sodas so we were pretty happy! 

Be sure to check out SodaStream online!  You can also LIKE them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter and Pinterest too!


And theres something else you are going to love.......

  15. I would love to have a Soda Stream to give to my grandson for his upcoming birthday. He asked for one for Christmas and did not get one, so he asked me for one for the birthday. I think they are great because you save much money as well as help save the earth not having to throw away soda cans or pop bottles.
