Goin’ Green & Savin’ Green SodaStream Review Giveaway
Ever wish you could add or remove carbonation from your soda? I like my soda carbonation harsh, however, the kiddos prefer it slightly more mellow. Now, thanks to SodaStream, you control the carbonation to your own taste. I absolutely love that option!
Grandma Juice has reviewd the SodaStream Genesis. Her review is below followed by an amazing giveaway where one reader is going to win a SodaStream of their very own!
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard the name, SodaStream. You’ve probably even seen it in a local store or 2 right? Why haven’t you bought it? We saw it, in fact, we see it all over! We were hesitant to buy it because let’s face it, Soda drinkers are a picky bunch! We have our favorite and we stick with it. We’re loyal to ‘our brand’. And, we’re silly. We’re wasting money, we’re throwing away all these bottles and cans, we’re breaking our backs lugging heavy cases out of the car. Silly!
I’m so happy the folks over at SodaStream sent us the Genesis SodaStream and we were able to see first hand just how silly we had been. A few years ago, we cut down on how much Pop (my Midwest roots poking out there) we drink because it’s so sugary and really expensive with a houseful of kids. This would have been a super alternative to the begging and whining back then! With this baby, we an make a liter for about .25! And, compared to ‘that leading carbonated beverage brand that we can’t name’ rather than 41 grams of sugar and 150 calories, we can now enjoy the same exact thing but only have 8 grams of sugar and 35 calories! Sweet, right? Ethan thought it was some special occasion when we said it was Pizza & Pop night when we broke open the box!
And, he was just a wee bit more than excited to get to help make it too! It’s really very easy. You screw the carbonation canister in place. Next, fill the bottle with cold water and screw that in place to; then press the button and wait a few seconds until ‘BUZZ’… done! Add your favorite flavoring and you’re good to go! There’s a flavor for everyone and if you didn’t see it made right in your own home, you’d never know the difference. The only thing I did notice is the ‘Energy’ variety is slightly different then an actual Redbull. It tastes exactly the same but what it’s missing is all the really harmful ingredients that give me that super jolt. It does contain the caffeine, just leaves out the garbage that I shouldn’t have anyways. I’m working on adjusting to that!
The sparkling water is really good too! Summer in the Vegas desert can be brutal. We can’t keep enough in the house at times it seems. SodaStream has all-natural, unsweetened flavor essences for making refreshing, lightly flavored sparkling water. MyWater flavor essences are available in Orange, Berry and Lemon-Lime. I prefer the Lemon-Lime just as cold as it can be without being considered an ice cube!
