I was more than thrilled when I was chosen to review the SodaStream! I waited anxiously on the porch steps everyday. What a kid in a candy store. A lot of Mountain Dew is consumed in this house by my husband. I have to say I enjoy a cold Pepsi a few days a week as well and it would be a huge money saver if I could make our own. Also, my husband doesn’t care for carbonation that much so how convenient is it that he can make his with just a little and I can have a lot.
The SodaStream is very compact and doesn’t take up a lot of space on the counter which is really nice for daily use, which is what we are hoping for to replace the Mountain Dew. I like that it could be a lot less bottles as well. The two bottles that came with the SodaStream are the most durable liter bottles I have ever seen and will be ordering more of them for every use. I am not sure if they can be frozen but I can guarantee they will be replacing the current water bottles I use.
How easy to make a liter of pop. Grab a water bottle out of the fridge, screw it on and push a button three times. Then pour in the syrup that you have measured. So easy and surprising no MESS! This is a must have in my house because I spend a lot of my time cleaning up messes.
One SodaStream carbonator makes 60 or 110 liters, equivalent to 170 or 310 aluminum cans! When empty, the carbonator is refilled and reused, ready to make more fizzy and tasty soda whenever you want it.
I love the convenience that is offered with exchanging the CO2 bottles rather than purchasing a new one every time. You purchase them from the website with up to four refills at a time.
Onto the taste… Well one thing I wasn’t aware of is that EVERY syrup is made with Splenda. The full flavor syrups are made with half syrup and half sugar to make them approximately 35 calories per a serving. The diet flavors are straight Splenda. Cory and Coulter didn’t care about this and thought it was pretty good…Good enough to replace the Mountain Dew? Not sure at this point but we will be purchasing a bottle of flavoring to see. I however have a problem with this. It’s not to bad with the fruit flavors like Lemonade and Orange Mango, but in the Coke and Rootbeer flavors it’s like I bought a diet coke from the store. Not what I would make for a drink on a weekly basis. When I want a pop I want a pop and I know the calories I am adding to my diet for it and accommodate for it.
We will be continuing to see how it goes in this house with the SodaStream. The carbonation can add up but I think it would still be cheaper in the long run if the flavor passes Cory’s standards. As for mine I have found a regular Coke flavored syrup from anotherv company that I will be trying. If this works out they do offer three flavors and I will be using those. I am still thrilled with my SodaStream as I can make my own flavored water that tastes great and I love how it looks sitting on my counter and the entertainment value it has when people come over. If you drink any amount of pop or flavored water and don’t mind Splenda than I highly recommend this appliance for your house. It would be a wonderful investment!
