Sodastream - a great review and an awesome giveaway!

Have you heard of Sodastream? This is the coolest new thing, and I was so lucky to be allowed to review it and do a giveaway! This gadget lets you make your own sodas and flavored carbonated waters - diet and regular, in a HUGE assortment of flavors. All you do is add tap water, hook it up to the machine, push the button to add carbonation, add the flavor syrup, and you have soda!! You don't have to worry about running out of soda with this machine - each bottle of sodamix makes about 12 liters of soda (about 33 cans!) for around 25 cents per 12-ounce can. Not only is it fun and convenient, it's cheap! :)

We got the machine and Monkey (my 10 year old son) was sooo excited to try it out. His favorite soda is root beer, so that is the first one we made. He had a blast pushing the button and making the carbonation. It has a tank of CO2 that jets into the water, making the bubbles. You can decide if you want a little carbonation, a medium amount, or in Monkey's case, a LOT - all the better for burping. LOL

My favorite flavor was the Diet Pink Grapefruit. It is SO good! There are many to choose from - cola, root beer, ginger ale, lemon-lime, lemonade, orange, tonic, cherry, pete's choice (which is like dr pepper), even an orange mango one!


So, on to the giveaway!

One of YOU will win the following - a Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit (approx. $100 retail value.) It includes the winner's choice of black/silver, white or red/silver Fountain Jet, CO2 to make over 100 liters of soda, 2 reusable carbonating bottles, a sample pack of flavors, and 3 full-sized flavors of the winner's choice.

How can you win? It's simple! Just go to Sodastream's website and check it out. I know you will want one after seeing it, their site is awesome. Then just leave a comment on this post. Tell me what color machine you would choose, and which three flavors you would want to try first. I will have Monkey choose a winner at random on FRIDAY, July 2nd. The only restriction is that you must live in the United States (sorry to my international readers, that is Sodastream's policy).

So .... go check it out, and leave a comment! :)

Great Blog!

StepNurse said...

Ooooh...I have been stalking these on eBay forever! I keep putting them on my gift wishlist too LOL

Lemonade, gingerale and cola are on the top of my list.

The white machine would look great in the new kitchen :)

I'd never heard of this before, but now I need it desperately. I like the white, which would match my appliances and though it's hard to pick, I choose diet cream, diet cranberry and the diet cola, caffeine free. Thanks!

Lori said...

Looks interesting.
I like the black/silver one and the 3 flavors I'd get are orange, cherry cola, and diet cranberry raspberry.

Cool product!

We would like to try cola, root beer and my water variety pack.

The red/black machine would be awesome!

Susan said...

My kids think this is the coolest thing ever! I would love one of these in red.

Gotta try peach iced tea since we are Southerners and Zero Cola and Pete's choice are definite favorites.

Thanks for sharing the link. I did not know such a thing existed. :)

Janet said...

Good Morning. I just saw your comment on Reagan Leigh's blog and I wanted to say hello to you and your family and welcome to our family! I am Reagan's grandma and it is very nice to meet you all! (Notice that I didn't say yall!!)lol
I love the Sodastream. This is a fantastic idea! I am always on the search for new flavored waters!!!

Kim said...

That looks so awesome! My kids (and I!!) would love to have one in black. My kids would like to try the rootbeer, orange and ginger ale flavors.

Thank you!

Courtney said...

This is the coolest product ever!! If I am so lucky to win, I would love to have the black/silver one and I guess gingerale, rootbeer, and peach tea for the flavors. My nieces and nephews would go crazy like Monkey over this :)


Brextin's Hope said...

This product looks fun! All three colors appear to be vibrate - I would rank them in this order: red, silver, and then white. The flavors would be rootbeer, lemonade, and orange (I even saw you can do ice teas with the machine - these would be my favorite) I am crossing my fingers and my toes :-) Brextin's mom!

Traci said...

That looks great! We would love to have the black/silver with Root Beer, Diet Fountain Mist, and Diet Cola Caffeine Free. Thanks!!

Denise said...

This looks so FUN! We rarely drink soda anymore because of High fructose Corn syrup, it would be GREAT to make our own and not have to worry about HFCS!

I'd love to have the white one & we'd want to try ginger ale, cola & rootbeer first

Kiera Beth said...

Oh my goodness what a great giveaway! I would pick a red/silver one! My flavors would be Diet Pete's Choice, Lemon Lime & diet Root Beer
