This is my very own SodaStream Starter Kit. It is incredibly easy to set up, so easy that my 12 year old son got it started for us. Trust me, everyone in your family is going to LOVE this fantastic eco-friendly home soda maker.
Once you have your SodaStream set up for use, it's really simple to make your soda. You fill the bottle to the fill line with water and screw it onto the SodaStream. You then pump as many carbonation bursts as you would like into the water. I LOVE heavy carbonation, so I pump it around 6 times. Then you release the bottle and fill it with a cap of your favorite soda. Shake gently and you are ready to enjoy the freshest soda possible made right in the comfort of your own home.
SodaStream syrups come in a multitude of flavors sure to make everyone in your household happy. I recommend going ahead and purchasing a second BPA Free Carbonating Bottle so you can have a few flavors handy. My favorite flavor is the Cranberry Raspberry. I'd never had this combination before and it is absolutely delicious and only has 35 calories per serving. I like to mix a little bit with Crystal Light Raspberry Lemonade for a unique sparkling beverage.
My daughter is a Sprite Fanatic. She fell in love with the Diet Lemon Lime Syrup by SodaStream. My son's favorite is the Root Beer. This is just a small sampling of all the many syrups available. They do taste very close to their competitors versions.
Here are the Nutrition Facts for the Coke version. I was happy to know that it contains pure cane sugar and no artificial sweeteners. It has a great naturally sweet taste without tasting too sweet.
SodaStream also offers sparkling water with just a slight flavor by using their flavor essences. Just a few drops turns your water into a sparkling and refreshing beverage. Please make sure you only add a few drops. My sweet son thought he was suppose to add the entire bottle and you should have seen his puckered face when he took a sip.
