Review: SodaStream

August 24, 2013

Ahhh… Want to talk about exciting???
If you know me, you know I am an avid soda drinking. Well, I got the opportunity to review the SodaStream which in my book is pretty damn exciting! So I waited and waited for the mailman to deliver this baby!! SodaStream_02

I have seen the infomercials for products like these and really wondered how they actually tasted. I mean let’s be real… Water into Soda… Umm I sure as hell didn’t think so!


Once I got the box opened I was too eager to try this out so there was no waiting for this! I ripped open the package and was in TOTAL shock and I mean TOTAL shock when I say I was amazed with all the favors I was sent! I couldn’t believe everything they had sent me. I was expecting maybe 1 full size bottle and some sample packs and WOW, SodaStream went way beyond what I was expecting and I was super excited! I mean look at all the flavors I was sent. I was going to have so much fun testing this product out!!


There is was so easy to set up! Screw in the tube of carbonation and put the lid on and you are pretty much set to go! I really wasn’t sure I was going to like this. I was extremely skeptical but I am a soda drinker so I knew what it was I liked. First we tried the Energy Sample pack and the Cola. The Energy drink was amazing! It was gone in one day! I still need to run back to the store and get more because it really was super good! The Cola wasn’t so bad the first time. I found that once I started to use the SodaStream more I was able to adjust the amount of carbonation and the amount of syrup to my liking.

I also have to say I really enjoyed the Root Beer. I think for me it was a bit sweet but overall I really enjoyed it. I try not to let my son have soda often but he was having a blast helping me make our soda. He would pick out one flavor and I would choose the other. He really loves the Lemon-Lime. He doesn’t want to use the bottles. He likes using the sample packs because he can squeeze all the syrup into the bottle.

One thing I found is this is best when Super Cold. Cold water just doesn’t cut it. I suggest making your soda and then pour into a glass of ice! That’s what we did and it make the soda so much better.

We have tried all the flavors I received and I have to say I am truly happy with this product! The water was awesome! It was pretty interesting to have carbonated water!  Cranberry was my favorite for the water!

I’m still unsure what Black Currant & Pear is but I really enjoyed it. It was different! I am curious as to what in the world Black Currant is but I am unsure if I truly want to know! Hahaha. Sometimes things are better left unknown!

I really am Happy with the SodaStream! It was easy to assemble and easy to make the soda. There is no batteries or power cords. It’s not overly huge so it would fit onto the counter top nicely. I love the modern design and the colors available. I’m super happy mine is red because that is the color of my kitchen! Well, Red and Black.

I still can’t believe how much I enjoyed this product! LOL. I honestly thought how in the world could this actually taste good… Well, I went from being a Skeptical to a supporter of SodaStream. They have created a pretty awesome product and I am honored to have been able to do this review…. AND GIVEAWAY!!!!!!

That is CORRECT….SodaStream is allowing me to give one of these babies away!!!

Oh… Before I forget, I took a little video to show you a how this works!

    I keep seeing ads and commercials for this but didn’t know anyone who had one or who had used one. So glad to have read your review! Very helpful information. I think I would love carbonated cranberry water. We don’t drink a lot of soda, but perhaps my kids would feel less deprived if they had carbonated water.

    Omg. That is so amazing! I have wanted one of these FOREVER. Okay, well, since they came out haha. When they were like … only on infomercials, the hubby and I would argue over how and if it really worked. I know, but when you add up all the cost of the soda, and factor in the hassle of storing recyclables and the damage we’re doing to the planet?! It’s totally worth it!

    If I were to win, I’d choose the Creme Soda, Sparkling Naturals Black Currant Pear and the Root Beer. But I am wondering if it’s more A&W-esque or more Barqs-ish. There’s a difference! =) Either way — this is AWESOME!
