Christmas in July: SodaStream Giveaway

snowmanchristmasevent Now this really is like Christmas. SodaStream sent Tracy and I both a machine to review. Now I haven’t heard what she likes most about it yet, but she did tell me that her husband is in love with it. LOL.

Me, I love soda, coke is my favorite, next comes Dr. Pepper, unless you can find a bottle of imperial sugar DP. Then I’m in love and nothing comes next to it. So after coke those two I would have to say that I love sprite. Yes I love soda, well, once I had kids I gave up soda. Mostly. We don’t keep it in the house the same way we used to, but whenever I’m out at someone else’s house and they have soda, I LOVE it. So I drink their soda.

Sodastream was at the green fair last year and I was really interested in it. I love how you can make it at home, it has fewer calories and sugar in it, and it comes in a smaller portion than a 2 liter does. So I can make just enough and put some in the fridge and not worry about it getting flat before I have the chance to drink it all.

The SodaStream can be broken up into four different components.

The plastic machine base: Jet Soda Stream

Now you might think I’m a little crazy and that’s ok, but I’m afraid of CO2 containers. I’ve seen too many action movies where they use them to explode other things so, I made my husband test out the entire process. Again, I must stress when I let my husband review things, he does not read the directions. Please read the directions unless you want to be cleaning up water from all over the floor.

Directions:

Take off the lid of the CO2 and Attach the CO2 to the plastic base

Fill up plastic bottle with water up to the line and Screw it on tightly

Press the pump at the top of the plastic base and hold it down until it buzzes (repeat 3 times)

Then be sure to enjoy your soda!!

    Since it “tis the season” – I’d go for the Diet Lemon Iced Tea (or the Diet Pink Grapefruit)

    I’m also very interested in the Flavor Essences for sparkling water – I love all the fruit flavor option and I’m intrigued by the new MINT flavor. It sounds so refreshing and like it might be a wonderful mixer!

    I checked out SodaStream and the flavor I’d like to try the most would be their Diet Cola cause this is what I drink every day…..
