{Giveaway} and Review - SodaStream - CLOSED




I am so excited to bring you this review and giveaway from SodaStream! I just love soda! But I know that I have spent a lot of money on it over the years. I don't even want to think about all the cans and bottles I have used. Yes, I do recycle. But that is still a lot of packaging when you consider all the soda I drink!

The solution is SodaStream! With SodaStream you can make your own soda from tap water! It is so amazing and so easy to use! The SodaStream system enables consumers to carbonate water and to flavor carbonated beverages at home as an alternative to purchasing pre-packed bottles or cans. This has many important benefits to the consumer including cost savings and no hassle with bottles. 


The advantages of SodaStream's Home Carbonation System include:

  • Convenience: No need to carry heavy bottles from the store. The SodaStream system is simple to use and requires no batteries or electricity.
  • Environmentally-Friendly: SodaStream is an "Active Green" solution that minimizes the huge eco-footprint caused by the manufacture, transport and waste of plastic bottles.
  • Variety: SodaStream offers over 100 flavors to suit everyone’s taste. Regular, diet, natural, fruity flavors, ice tea, energy drinks, sport drinks, tonic and many more.
  • Space Saver: No need to store bottles of beverages or empty bottles for recycling in your home.
  • Personalization: Make drinks just the way you love them… more bubbles, less bubbles, sweeter or lighter, even create your own flavor!
  • Family Fun: The system is quick and easy to use. It's fun for everyone and kids just love it!
  • Value for Money: Great savings compared to pre-packed carbonated water and beverages.
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed: SodaStream drinks makers are of extremely high quality and include a money-back satisfaction guarantee.
How To Create Your Own Soda:

Fill the reusable carbonating bottle with tap water. Put in fridge to cool.

Secure the reusable bottle onto the soda maker.

Press the carbonating button a few times to add the fizz.

Choose your favorite carbonating mix. I chose Root Beer for my first try.

Measure one cap full of the carbonating mix.

Pour the cap of mix into the bottle.

Gently shake to distribute the mix evenly.

Enjoy!

So as you can see I tried Root Beer for my first bottle. The taste of the Root Beer was very good. But there wasn't much fizz. I discovered after my second try that I did not push the carbonation button enough times when I made my Root Beer.

For my second try I made the Green Tea Pomegranate Punch.
You can see the fizz in my cup!
Success - it turned out delicious. Practice makes perfect!

Making your favorite flavor is so simple with a wide variety of over 100 SodaStream flavored syrups including leading regular and diet flavors. The range of flavors includes cola, lemon-lime, pink grapefruit, red berry mix, apple, orange, exotic fruit flavors, energy drinks, ice tea and cocktail mixers.
