#Giveaway ~ SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit ($99.95)


        Several years ago when I started my eco-friendly journey, I realized my love-hate relationship with soda needed to come to an end.  The main ingredient in almost every brand of soda is HFCS - high fructose corn syrup.  Some may argue HFCS is fine to consume. I disagree! HFCS is created when genetically modified corn is treated with enzymes to make it sweet.  This concoction is used as a sweetener in everything from soda to ketchup.  Regardless of your view on HFCS....- Laboratory studies show animals who consume HFCS, store large amounts of fat around their middle section.  So no HFCS in my diet, means no soda.  Until now!!  SodaStream enables you to turn tap water into soda in less than 30 seconds! Regular flavors contain no HFCS. Diet flavors contain no aspartame!  Aspartame is an artificial sweetener linked to a host of health problem including a possible link to cancer.


       My kids were eager to put the SodaStream to the test! I was apprehensive about putting it together. My worries were cast aside because it literally to just a few seconds to screw the carbonator into the machine. Once in place, you lower the carbonator into the hollow canal and snap the top and bottom together.  Presto, Chango...your ready to make soda!  Included are 2 BPA free bottles. Fill the bottle to the line with tap water, screw the bottle into the SodaStream machine.  Give 3 pushes on the ole' button to add carbonation into the bottle.  Add your desired flavor, gently turn the bottle up and down to mix and serve! Easy as pie.. eh I mean soda!

      I love the eco-friendly aspects of the SodaStream. You save on bottles used, discarded and produce overall less waste. Not to mention, you can create soda at a fraction of the cost vs. the cost of soda from a major manufacture.  With over 50 different flavors available, everyone will find their own favorite flavor to suite their fancy!


The kids and I sampled several different flavors. I'm amazed at how easy and fast it is to make an entire bottle of soda.  With multiple bottles, it's very easy to make a few different varieties to keep everyone happy! We all know how hard it is to get 4 children to come to an agreement on one flavor!  All of the flavors were very tasty and refreshing. The most surprising fact about SodaStream to me is the flavor of diet cola.  It tastes great.  I refuse to drink name brand diet soda because of the chemicals in the artificial sweetener.  SodaStream gives me a low calorie cola option with a great authentic cola flavor. Any of you readers counting your calories, SodaStream diet cola would be a great option for you!  My overall opinion of SodaStream is very favorable. SodaStream is well worth the cost, and will save you money in the long run!
