Easily Make Your Own Soda!

If you love sodas and sparkling water, let me introduce you to Soda Stream by Soda-Club. This easy to use system turns water into fresh, fizzy sparkling water and soda in seconds with absolutely no cleanup! You are given the ability to control the flavor and fizz and re-usable, BPA-free carbonating bottles eliminate the plastic bottle waste associated with purchasing store-bought sparkling water and soda. Regular sodamix flavors are sweetened with a Sugar-Splenda blend eliminating the need for high-fructose corn syrup. Diet sodamix flavors are sweetened with Splenda. Flavors are offered in over 25 great-tasting regular, diet and caffeine-free flavors. Regular flavors have 2/3 less carbs, calories and sugar than store-bought sodas, and contain much less sodium. Diet flavors are sugar-free and sweetened with Splenda and contain no aspartame. If you prefer flavored seltzers try MyWater, unsweetened, all-natural flavor essences for making lightly flavored seltzer or sparkling water. There is also an Energy Drink available!
The Soda Stream sits on your countertop. No batteries or electricity required, which makes it perfect for travel, vacations, camping, and boating. Simply twist on the carbonator. In anticipation of the arrival of Soda Stream, I had very cold water on hand. I suggest keeping water in the refrigerator because the soda is always best served cold. Fill the included bottle with water to the fill line, and twist the bottle onto the unit. Press the button 3-5 times (my 5 year old helped) to carbonate the water, and you have instant sparkling water! Next, remove the bottle and add any flavorings. The coolest part is being able to mix flavors for a unique drink!
Now if you are a die-hard Coke fan, don't expect the exact flavor. The Splenda-Sugar mix is a little different. The differences are less noticeable with the citrus flavors. This product is simple to use, reduces waste, and you will not feel guilty allowing your children to splurge on soda every now and then. It will not sit idle on your countertop and it travels well! The carbonators may be exchanged when they are empty, see site for details. Visit to purchase. You will be making delicious homemade soda in no time! They also carry the PENGUIN soda makers which use glass carafes instead of plastic! Want to try a delicious New York Egg Cream? There are a lot of great recipes on their site!
