Soda Stream

I was recently sent a Soda Stream to try and review.  I was so excited when it got here!  It is an interesting and awesome little machine!  If you are a big pop drinker, this might be something to look into.  Check this out…

There is a CO2 bottle in this machine that puts the carbonation into the tap water.  So you take one of the two bottles they give you and fill it with really cold tap water.  Then you add carbonation.

Then you add a little less than a cap full of flavor – whatever flavor you choose. This time we tried the pink grapefruit.

The flavor comes in a bottle similar to this.  It looks like a mini laundry detergent bottle.  :)

A little information from their website:

How does SodaStream nutrition stack up against national brands?

With a SodaStream home soda maker and over 30 delicious regular, diet and caffeine-free sodamix 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.

Calories Carbs Sugar Sodium Caffeine

Pepsi® 100 27g 27g 25mg 25mg
Coca-Cola® 100 27g 27g 35mg 23mg
SodaStream Cola 34 9g 9g 2mg 15mg
7-UP® 100 26g 26g 50mg 0mg
Sprite® 100 26g 26g 45mg 0mg
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).

Here are a few of the flavors we were sent to try.  So far we have tried, lemon-lime, diet cola, diet grapefruit, energy(which tastes just like Red Bull – SICK!!) and cran-raspberry.

Here are Christian and Ellie with the Soda Stream.  They loved it!  I wouldn’t be surprised if they already have one ordered now! :)

Thanks Soda Stream!  We are excited to keep making fun drinks!

    very cool! I have seen machines in stores that carbonize water (mom, if you’re reading this, I want one!), but I have never seen this before! What is the cost of a machine?
