Usually when the holidays arrive so do the house guests. That leaves you scrambling around making sure your pantry is stocked and your refrigerator is fully loaded. But it never fails, you will run out of something. This year make sure your guests don’t get thirsty by having a SodaStream Soda Maker on hand.
SodaStream/Soda-Club is the worlds largest manufacturer and distributor of Home Carbonation Systems. Soda-Club/SodaStream provides over 600 million liters of carbonated beverages to more than 8 million households every year. That makes Soda-Club one of the largest beverage companies in the world. Soda-Club is also more environmentally friendly than pre-packaged beverages because you mix and bottle the drinks at home. This also provides a cost saving to the consumer and eliminates the hassle with other bottles.
SodaStream offers a variety of kits to get you started on your beverage making journey. They sent me the Genesis Starter Kit in red which includes one Soda Maker, one 60-Liter Licensed Carbonator and two Carbonating Bottles. SodaStream also sent me a variety of Soda Mixes (Diet Cola, Cranberry-Raspberry, Root Beer, Cream Soda, Diet Pink Grapefruit, Orange, Diet Ginger Ale, Lemon-Lime, Energy, and Orange, Berry and Lemon-Line mywater flavors) to try. Placing the carbonator into the soda maker was simple and easy to do. Once that task is complete and you are ready to start making beverages.
Then you fill the bottle with (chilled) water and screw the bottle into the machine. Press the carbonating button in short presses until you hear a loud buzz. (This was the most fun part for me.) I found that when pushing the button 3 buzzes provided enough fizz for my liking. Then you pull the bottle forward, which makes a futuristic sound, and unscrew to remove.
Once you have chosen your desired flavor pour it in slowly and shake gently. Upon tasting the different beverages I could not believe that they were made at home and did not come from a store. I found the Orange and Diet Cola to be some of my favorite flavors while C liked the Root Beer and Cream Soda mixes.
One of the things I love about the SodaStream Soda Maker is that you don’t have to plug it into an electrical outlet. It also manages to look super stylish while sitting atop your counter. This would make a perfect holiday gift especially for the hostess on your list that has everything.
It comes with the Fountain Jet in your choice of color (black/silver, white or red/silver), CO2 to make over 100 liters of soda, 2 reusable carbonating bottles, a sample pack of flavors, and 3 full-sized flavors of your choice! ($100 ARV)
