I have been hearing so much about the SodaStream that I just had to try it for myself! We visited our friends for a weekend and they told us all about theirs, how much they loved it and how much money it saved them.
My husband is a big pop drinker and the price of it is just killing me! I can’t stand shelling out that much money.
Granted I don’t let my kids drink a lot of pop. If I do, it’s definitely caffeine free. I will buy special soda for them as a treat when I find it on sale but I generally do not stock several different kinds of soda just for the kids.
When I got my SodaStream Genesis, I had fun experimenting with the different flavors. It really is fun to make and easy! The kids even join in and enjoy making soda too.
I love that it’s saving me money on buying 12 packs but also, I love not having all those empty cans to deal with. Best of all though is that I can easily stock several different flavors and make whatever kind of soda I want at the time. This really came in to play the other day when my little guy was sick. I always go for the lemon lime type sodas whenever any of us is sick or has tummy issues. But again, I don’t normally keep all types of pop on hand so I usually would have to run to the store and grab something. Not this time. I just grabbed the lemon lime flavor and whipped up a liter of soda.
SodaStream carries 50 different flavors! Here’s a little more info:
Making your favorite soda, flavored sparkling water or energy drink is simple, with SodaStream’s wide variety of over 50 sodamix syrups including dozens of regular, diet and caffeine-free options.

One of the first things I thought of after getting my SodaStream was making Italian Sodas. Yum Yum Yum! Here’s an easy recipe that you can easily make with your new SodaStream:
