A couple weeks ago I was sent this soda stream device along with all of the flavors you see here for review. I was so excited and could not wait to take it out of the package. Soda stream offers a great alternative to buying a bunch of soda bottles by making it yourself at home. You can either make regular sparkling water or add some flavor to it and make your own soda. Unlike your regular soda’s that you purchase on the shelf you can add as much or less fizz or favor as you like to get the desired taste that you want. There are a variety of flavors to chose from. You can do diet or regular or use the all natural unsweetened flavor essence that give your water just the hint of flavor you might like. The cola was one of my favorites and tasted very close to the name brand Coca Cola. This was a plus for me because that is a favorite of mine. Not only does their regular flavors have no high fructose corn syrup but they have less calories than the leading brand. This is is awesome for people who want to ween off of soda without having to let go of it completely. There were a few of the flavors that I did not particularly care for but I am extremely happy with the system as a whole. I love that I don’t have to waste electricity by plugging up my unit. Instead it uses a carbonator that you connect to the back of your system that gives your water it’s fizz. When your bottle is empty either exchange it by going online to sodastream.com or visit a local soda stream authorized retailer. Make sure that you have the correct size for your model. Setup was very easy and took only a few minutes. The bottle is reusable up to two years and is washable. If you are thinking of purchasing a soda stream I think it is definitely a great investment well worth the money and keeps those plastic bottles out of our landfills. For purchasing information visit sodastream.com or a local retailer near you.
