SodaStream - Review

I never really imagined myself making my own soda. And even when I learned about the SodaStream Soda Maker I had my doubts. Could you really make soda at home that tasted as good, if not better, than what you could buy at the store? And what would making my own soda offer me in terms of benefits over just buying it? Isn't running into the store more convenient than making my own?

All I can say is that SodaStream has changed the way I look at soda and my shopping habits. I had no idea that this machine would offer soda that tasted so good and took such little time. Not to mention all the ways it has saved me money and energy.

A major plus with the SodaStream is that you can make soda as you need it. You don't need to have it sitting around the house taking up space. We don't drink soda on a daily basis, so buying a bottle and having it open often leads to waste as it goes flat. With the SodaStream I can make a reasonable amount of soda the day that I need it and enjoy it at it's freshest. 

And now SodaStream has even more to offer in terms of drinking options. I was really excited to learn that they had flavors to add to your water to make the yummiest sparkling water. And now they are offering Country Time and Crystal Light, giving me even more opportunities to use my SodaStream and have some variety on hand.

SodaStream has saved us a lot of time and money. I no longer have to lug 12 packs of soda to and from the car. I'm not throwing out a quarter of a bottle of soda that has gone flat. And I'm not creating nearly as much recycling. I can use the same bottle over and over again as I create tons of refreshing drinks.

These drinks are also offering some health benefits. For me, eliminating aspartame in my diet soda is huge! That is one of the main reasons that I cut back on diet soda. So knowing that SodaStream flavors use Splenda for sweetening makes it much sweeter!

The best part of this, however, is the fun that it has brought into our home. My daughter gets so excited when we are having people over or it's a special pizza night and she knows she gets to have some soda. She goes to pick out what the flavor of the night will be and gets so excited when there is a new one to pick from. Then she helps me to make the soda. Her favorite part is when we press the button to carbonate and it makes the buzz sound. It's a hands on experience that she really enjoys and makes the night a little more special and fun!

People do seem skeptical when they come over and I whip up a bottle of soda. I am seeing that more and more people have heard about SodaStream, but haven't had the opportunity to try it. So I am excited to give them their first taste and see what they think. Everyone has been pleasantly surprised by the flavor and very impressed with the benefits that this machine offers. 

I would recommend you check out SodaStream and all the flavors and options available. You might just find that it would make a great addition to your home!

I want one just to make carbonated water - I don't use any artificial sweetener at all. Banned diet soda from my life nearly four years ago.

Yeah, the carbonated water option is nice! And the flavors you can add are great! Sometimes we make carbonated water with a little lemon flavor and tell my daughter it's soda... hehe.

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this topic
to be really something which I believe I would by no means understand.
It seems too complex and very vast for me. I am having a look ahead for your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the hang of it!
