Have you ever been sitting at home CRAVING a soda (I have a Dr. Pepper problem) and you realize your out? On a daily basis I stick with diet soda for obvious reasons, but when I crave a Dr. Pepper I have to get up and go get one. Thanks to Sodastream my emergency trips to the store are over and I’m continuing my “green” journey in the process!
What is Sodastream?
Sodastream is an ingenious little machine that turns water into Soda and sparkling water in minutes without the need for electricity. That’s right, no cords, just one sleek, stylish, compact machine that allows you to fill a 1 liter bottle with water, carbonate it and add any of the Over 25 Regular, Diet and Caffeine-Free Flavors to gain instant access to your favorite soda or sparkling water. Sodastream offers 4 different stylish units to choose from that will fit any families preferences and home decor. From Cola, Orange and Rootbeer to Diet options such as Diet Cola, Diet Cran-Rasberry and Diet Cream Soda, Sodastream offers something for every member of your family.
Sodastream sent us a unit to test drive that included the following:
1 Sodastream machine (Unit, Co2 & 2-1 liter bottles)
8 Sodamix flavors (Diet & Regular
1 pack MyWater Flavor Essences
It works and it’s fun!! My husband was eager to try the Sodastream out as he as an avid Diet 7-up fan. He was excited to see that Diet Lemon Lime was included in the package and went straight to work to create his favorite beverage. We filled the 1 liter bottle with water and placed into the machine and pumped until it was adequately carbonated. We then added the soda flavor and like magic, we had soda! Woo Hoo! We were both delighted to find that the Lemon Lime Soda was almost identical to the Diet 7-up that my husband so desperately craves. We had a little too much fun and had to do it again (just picture two small children with a new toy)!
Nutrition: Obviously Soda offers no nutrition…but as parents who love soda, it was a nice relief to know that Sodastream’s Regular sodamix flavors contain less sugar, calories, carbohydrates and sodium than national drink brands. Regular flavors are sweetened with a combination of sugar and Splenda® brand sweetener. Diet sodamix flavors contain no sugar, no aspartame and are sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener. Sodastream offers 12 delicious diet flavors, which is the widest variety sweetened with Splenda®.
The Green Factor: Americans drink more than 55 billion liters of soda and seltzer each year. That’s almost 200 liters — about 600 cans! — for every adult and child in the United States. And, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, that adds 10 1/2 cubic feet of packaging per American — over 3 billion cubic feet! — in our landfills and recycling facilities every year. Just by using Sodastream your helping our environment by drastically reducing waste from store-bought cans and bottles. And with no batteries or electricity, you can use your soda maker in your kitchen, outdoors on your patio or deck, or on your boat or RV (an amazing space saver for travel).
Price: My favorite part about the Sodastream! You save money with this purchase!! Making soda with Sodastream is just pennies per serving and right now you can grab a Sodastream Fountain Jet Unit for a very special price (shhhh..it’s on sale)! You can purchase Sodastream online or find a retailer near you! If your still in need of a Father’s Day Gift….this is it!
