Give a Sodastream for Christmas

I remember when Sodastream first came out, we got one and loved it. Being big pop drinkers, this was great and saved us money. Over the years, I have tried to drink less and less pop. Some days I’m more successful than others, but I’m trying. Sodastream is also shifting its focus to sparkling water. Don’t worry, they still have soda options, but also have a wide variety of water flavorings as well.

Sodastream has three different options as far as machines. There is the classic, electric (which I have) and the premium. There is no wrong choice, it really just depends on your needs.

I know from past experience that the classic is very easy to use, but for this post I received the electric. It does require a plug in but that’s not a big deal. I keep it in the kitchen anyway. It’s super easy to set up. Take the wrapping off the gas canister and just pop it in the back, then put the cover back on.

To use just follow the easy steps:

  1. Fill your Sodastream bottle to the fill line
  2. Place it in at an able and push to secure
  3. Press whichever button you want (1, 2 or 3) twice, and wait for it to fill with carbonation and then release.
  4. Add water flavoring, place cap and gently mix in.
  5. Pour in glass and enjoy!

Like I said, super easy. It may take a few times to figure out which setting you like best as far as carbonation. I suggest starting at 1 and working your way up. Setting 3 is pretty strong, so unless you like a lot of carbonation, I’d start low.

How many drinks you get out of each canister varies. You will use more if you use the 3 setting a lot versus the 1 setting. Check your local store to see if they do a Gas Exchange. This allows you to save some money instead of buying a new cylinder at full price. I’ve done this and saved up to 50% of the cost! Usually it’s stores like Walmart and Target but some other places can do it as well, just depends on your area.

As far as flavors go, Sodastream is pulling out all the stops and offering a lot of options especially in the water enhancer/fruit drops. Their current flavors include:
  • Peach
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Raspberry
  • Mango
  • Orange

If you have someone on your Christmas list this year that loves sparkling water, or you, consider a Sodastream. It definitely makes for a great present.

    I've never tried one before, but I've always wondered how crisp the drinks taste. I'd love to try it out! I'd love to taste the grapefruit and the mango!

  15. my husband would love this. he likes drinking soda more so then flavored water.

  16. Its good to know that there is a sparkling water choice. We don't drink much soda but like having a variety of water choices.

  17. I really want to try a Soda Stream but I'm not sure if it can stand up to my carbonation expectations. I like a strong carbonation in my drink, similar to Pepsi.
