Party Giveaway Extravaganza: SodaStream - a smarter way to drink soda

 

I remember SodaStream as a kid back in England, my friends would have them at their birthday party and I would be so jealous as we weren't allowed soda at home.  I don't drink much soda right now because its expensive and has way too much salt and sugar.  Little did I know that SodaStream soda is actually a lot healthier and cheaper than regular soda and those Mum's back in England were actually on to something!


SodaStream kindly sent a Fountain Jet Soda maker for our review.  We also received a neat package of SodaStream's sodamixes.  We had a trial run and taste test before the birthday party.  I chose the diet grapefruit flavor to start with.  It was a pretty simple set up, I washed the reusable bottle, filled it to the line with filtered water.  I screwed in the CO2 carbonator and reusable filled bottle in place, 3 simple hits on the top button injected the bubbles into the filtered water and then I added the soda mix to taste. 

The kids loved the diet grapefruit flavored soda.  Then we moved swiftly onto the cranberry/raspberry flavor.  Although, the characteristic bombardment of bubbles that hits you when you first open a can of regular soda is not as strong in the sodastream soda, I found that after a few sips its actually refreshing to be able to actually taste the flavor in my soda.  You can add more or less bubbles to your SodaStream soda as you please.



I loved that there is....

How does SodaStream nutrition stack up against national brands?
Check out the full list here

Calories Carbs   Sugar Sodium Caffeine
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 Pepsi®          100      27g       27g    25mg     25mg
                              Coca-Cola®    100      27g        27g    35mg    23mg
                         SodaStream Cola    34        9g         9g       2mg    15mg

All SodaStream regular sodamix uses a mixture of Splenda® and sugar. Diet flavors are sugar-free, sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener. Comparison is based on 8 fl. oz. serving size (0.34 fl. oz. of SodaStream sodamix per 8 fl. oz. of water).

My kids are not allowed regular soda for the same reason why I don't drink it, plus they are too young for all that sugar but I'm happy with the kids drinking SodaStream soda on occasions.  The SodaStream was a hit at my daughter's birthday party for both the adults and kids.   I was surprised how many of the parents had never heard of SodaStream.  You learn something new each day.
