SodaStream Summer Fun! Review


It’s definitely summertime in the Seery house!  I’m trying my best to let the kiddos have fun, but keep them reading and learning to avoid the summer slide.


We recently had the opportunity to try out SodaStream – what a fun, interesting and tasty science lesson for the kiddos!


Carbonation + Water = Sparkling Beverage! According to Paige, it’s magic.  Well, sort of.  This took us to the internet where we did a search to figure out exactly how those bubbles ended up in tap water.   The kids have had so much fun!  I like that the SodaStream is easy enough for my kiddo’s to use, well my 14 year old that is.  Even my husband is intrigued by this get up!


SodaStream International is the world’s leading manufacturer and distributor of home beverage carbonation systems, which enable consumers to easily transform ordinary tap water instantly into carbonated soft drinks and sparkling water.


You read that right, ordinary tap water into carbonated soft drinks and sparkling water.  Drink options include cola, Country Time, V8 Splash, Happy Hour Cocktail Mixers, Kool-Aid, Crystal Light and more!  I love the idea of a Root Beer Float!


I appreciate the fact that there is a variety of drinks with no high fructose corn syrup and while there is sugar, it’s much less sugar than the other brands.  There are sugar free options though! In all, there are over 70 flavors!

I simply adore the MyWater Essence Flavor!  It’s unsweetened and all-natural flavor essence for making lightly flavored seltzer or sparkling water.  Orange, Raspberry and Lemon-Lime, it’s very refreshing and a great option for people like me who have diabetes.  There are times I crave the fizz, the carbonation of a soda, but was told to stay away from all…I feel much better drinking the home made drinks from SodaStream.


The new SodaStream Caps are really convienent.  There’s no pouring, simply carbonate your tap water and pop on a top.  I prefer my kids use these…less mess!
