I am not going to lie, we are soda addicts in this house. I’m not sure how it happened or when it happened, but it happened. Fortunately, since starting my #Cinchspiration program, I have reduced my soda intake, but I still need my caffeine every now and again!
I was so excited to be given the opportunity to review a SodaStream! I mean, first off, how cool is it to make soda in your own home!? Second, imagine the savings of not having to buy soda every day (and how much healthier!)
Take this into consideration:
Everyday hubby would stop at our local Circle K and get us sodas. In the beginning it was two 44 ounce sodas. They are $0.79 a piece plus tax. Every day. Not only is that $12.00 a week, but did you catch the 44 ounces!? Craziness!
The SodaStream comes with a one liter bottle to make sodas in.
(Which I learned yesterday is roughly 3 cups or 24 ounces.) I don’t know about you, but 24 ounces is better than 44 ounces. And if you are sharing it with other people, you’re consuming even less!
The SodaStream is super easy to use – I made my first one yesterday (hubby hasn’t shared since we got it – he wants to play and make the drinks every time so yesterday while he was at work – I got to play!)
You fill the liter bottle to the identified water line with cold water. You screw the bottle into the machine and then press the button a certain number of times to carbonate the water. Then you slowly pour in the syrup of the drink you are making and voila! Soda!
We were provided different options beverage wise, but I have learned this:
- They have regular soda and diet soda.
- Some sodas are made with normal sugars, some are made with Splenda.
- SodaStream offers syrups other than soda! They have teas too!
- And one of my favorite things, they sent flavored syrups to make carbonated water!
What’s best is that even on my weight loss program and watching my caloric intake, the flavored syrups for water have 0 calories! The diet cola (like any other diet cola) has 0 calories – but what’s better – it doesn’t take like diet!
We are madly in love with our SodaStream machine!
