Way back in June of 2010 I reviewed the SodaStream, which was a clever product that allowed you to make your own soda at home. You can see my SodaStream video review here, and since it is the very first time I used the product, you’ll notice that I was surprised by the funny noises! 🙂
Last month I created a list of my very favorite products of 2010, and SodaStream made the list. I mentioned that even 2 years after getting it, I have yet to purchase a can of soda but I still get my bubbly fix thanks to SodaStream!
The folks at SodaStream were excited to make the “best of” list and offered to let me try some of their newer products. I was sent a Fountain Jet Soda Lover’s Start-Up Kit. Here’s what it looked like:
I was really impressed with all the goodies that came in this package, and couldn’t help but think that this would make the absolute PERFECT holiday gift for a loved one. You get everything you need to get started and I especially love the sample pack which gives you the chance to try out a lot of different flavors before you commit to buying any of them in the full-size. We’ve been buying SodaStream flavors for 2 years now, but I’ll admit that we stick to our 4 favorites. This gave us the chance to try out some flavors that we either hadn’t yet seen in the stores or just hadn’t purchased.
I also wanted to show how the Fountain Jet has gotten a really good makeover in the past 2 years. Here you will see the new Fountain Jet next to the old Fountain Jet. It’s much more sleek, don’t you think?
If you have been hesitant to try out the SodaStream, perhaps because of the initial cost, I have to tell you that I’m a thrifty gal and I think this product pays for itself time and time again. It also significantly reduces waste. Think of all the plastic 2 liter bottles and aluminum cans you won’t be using!
But perhaps my favorite reason for loving SodaStream is that their syrups contain no high fructose corn syrup. When you compare the cost of SodaStream to other sodas without that ingredient, there’s really no comparison. This is MUCH cheaper, and SO much better for you than a traditional soda.
I have been an evangelist for this product for the past 2 years (can’t tell you how many times we have shown it to friends who were curious when they were over for dinner or a visit!). I will continue to be a loyal SodaStream fan, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys soda or even carbonated water (yeah, you can use SodaStream to replace your pricey bottled carbonated water, too!).
