Earlier this month, I went to an event that featured SodaStream. Prior to this, I had no idea what a SodaStream machine was. I have a vague memory of a childhood friend having an Italian Soda machine, and that basically sums up my knowledge.
So what is SodaStream? SodaStream is a machine that allows you to turn tap water (any water, really) into a delicious sparkling flavoured drink. You can make your own pop at home! Aside from saving money, this machine can help impact the environment in a positive way. If you are making your own pop at home, then it cuts down on the amount of plastic pop bottles you are consuming.
You can try over 60 flavours with your SodaStream machine, thanks to Kraft. Choose from favourite Kool-Aid flavours, Crystal Lite or go for classics such as lemonade, cherry cola, cream soda and more!
If that wasn’t enough, there’s really nothing stopping you from buying your own syrups and experimenting. I have some serious plans to make a Shirley Temple.
I was given my own SodaStream to try out and to set the bubbles free in my own house! I had a lot of fun setting it up.
The starter kit is pretty simple to use, and comes with a carbonator bottle, 9 different flavour samples and an easy how-to guide. To set it up, all I had to do was pop the carbonator into the machine. Once that was done, I filled up the 1liter bottle that came inside of my kit with water. I attached it to the machine and pushed down to choose my level of carbonation.
As you push down, the machine lights up to let you know what level of carbonation your drink has. This was lots of fun! I like my drink fizzy, so I pushed a few times.
And that’s it! You have a deliciously fizzy drink waiting to be enjoyed. This would be really fun to use while entertaining.
What do you think? Would you try a SodaStream machine? Do you own one?
