SodaStream Review and Giveaway




I have been seeing SodaStream reviewed by bloggers. As a soda lover I know I have to try it. I was thrilled when they gave me the opportunity to review one. I was sent their Genesis soda maker as well as few of their soda flavors to review.




SodaStream soda makers are fashionable, fun, sleek and easy to use! SodaStream offers a wide variety of styles and colors to match any kitchen decor. All SodaStream models allow you to prepare great-tasting, fresh, fizzy beverages precisely to your taste - with no bottles, cans, electricity...and no clean-up.

I love how easy and simple it is to make your own soda with SodaStream. It only takes a few simple steps.
  • Fill the bottle with water.
  • Screw the bottle into the soda machine
  • Press the button 3 times to carbonate it.
  • Remove it and add your flavor.
  • Gently shake it and YOU ARE DONE!
The instructions was very easy to follow. Although they suggest to press 3 times to carbonate your soda, you can adjust the amount of carbonation by pressing it more or less depending on your preference. I prefer pressing it only twice. Pressing it 3 times was a little strong for me.

I'm a huge fan of Pepsi or Coke. Those are the only soda brands that I drink. So I was a little disappointed that the cola did not taste like it. However, I did enjoyed all the other flavors I was sent. Making soda with SodaStream was a lot of fun. My daughter and I already tried all of the flavors. She enjoys making and tasting different flavors. Our favorite is the Orange Mango!

More reason to love SodaStream
  • You can save money. You're only paying 25cents per can of soda or per one liter of sparkling water
  • Convenient. You always have fresh soda whenever you like. No more flat soda!
  • Very easy to clean. No need to clean the machine after each use. Only the bottles require cleaning.
  • You are helping the environment. Less packaging waste from cans and bottles. Less pollution caused by transport of bottled beverages.
  • Healthier than traditional sodas. Less sugar, carbohydrates, and calories than traditional sodas.
  • No batteries, no electricity, no plumbing.
  • They have over 30 flavors to choose from!
Bottom line, I would definitely recommend SodaStream. SodaStream is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to drink soda. Perfect for any occasions! A great gift for Mother's Day!
