Time For A Party With A Soda Stream Giveaway!

I suddenly feel the need to have a party!  In my mailbox this week arrived one of the most unique of products, the Soda Stream, a fun and fabulous way to transform ordinary tap water into sparkling water, flavoured water and all kinds of soda!  SodaStream

Why was I interested in trying this product?  I’m a Mama who believes in everything in moderation, but it sure doesn’t hurt my feelings to be able to offer my family another alternative to traditional pops or cans of soda. 

I found this info on the SodaStream site really quite interesting:

Regular sodamix flavors contain less sugar, calories, carbohydrates and sodium than national drink brands. Regular flavours contain no high-fructose corn syrup, and are sweetened with a blend of sugar and sucralose. Diet sodamix flavours contain no sugar, no aspartame and are sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener. Sparkling Naturals are sweetened exclusively with cane sugar.

SodaStream even has all-natural, unsweetened flavour essences for making refreshing, lightly flavoured sparkling water. My Water flavour essences are available in Orange, Berry and Lemon-Lime – just like squeezing a wedge of fruit into your seltzer

The other reason I was intrigued to try this product; I love the idea that the SodaStream can help cut down on the number of bottles and soda cans that come through this house.  This ad will make you think!

Not knowing quite what to expect, I quickly pulled the SodaStream out of it’s neatly packed box.  Inside I found a pretty and tightly packed appliance that fit in perfectly on my counter with out taking up too much space.  Accompanying this was a package of 9 flavour samples that my girls were eager to dive into.

I took a moment to read through the instruction manual, because that’s how I roll, and we were ready to go.  The concept is quite simple. 

1.  Fill the bottle with water to the fill line.

2.  Fizz the water to your desired level of fizziness.  (Is that a word?  It is now, I like mine extra fizzy)

3.  Open and add your flavour. 

“Smart. Simple. Soda.  Just fizz and drink.”

We were game and ready to give it a shot! 

In just moments we had it all set up and were ready to go!  Here is my step by step, it was super easy. (even for the instructionally challenged like me) I inserted the carbon cylinder in the back, rinsed out the SodaStream bottle and clicked it into place.

With one little push I was able to select my desired level of fizz.  I must confess I “thought” I would want to go all the way, level three, level two was plenty enough! 

The next step reads as if it is simple enough.  Tilt the bottle, and pour in your desired flavour.  As it turns out they are very serious about this “tilting” thing.  (I’m thinking that wee instruction should be bolded! LOL) Can you tell which time we tilted?

In just a few moments we had our end result.  Beautifully flavoured water!

  58. because my kids really like soda, but i don’t like to buy it for them. this sounds like it would be a good alternative for them for a treat.

    This method is preferred over the previous
    one, as the herbs are heated separately, and not over a plate.
    At birth, they are each the size of a pea, growing larger as we mature into young
    adulthood. Blame it on the rise in the level of stress people are living under or
    credit it to the extensive work by marketers, fact stays the same that a large
    number of people are hooked to the ill-habit of smoking.

  62. Natalie says:

    I don’t drink a lot of pop myself and when I do it’s just one or two flavours but I still have to keep different types in the house for company. It takes up so much space! SodaStream seems like it would solve that problem.

  63. I love pop, but would love to be able to make my own, and have a healthier option.

  64. My kids really love pop… Nothing is going to make it super healthy, but maybe if I have more control over what’s going in, alittle change goes a long way.

  65. Tanya L says:

    Would love to try this because I’ve never gotten to before . Looks soo neat!

  66. Pop is so bad for me and this would make my pop habit more healthy!
