When I learned about SodaStream it was its environmentally friendly nature that I loved, but I have since fallen in love with the BPA-free bottles, healthier soda flavors, the storage space I save in my small pantry and the ability to customize the carbonation for my family. We love the flavors we have tried and I have served this soda to many friends who were surprised to find that it was made right here in my home!
I got a black Fountain Jet to review, which is an affordable choice to fit most budgets, however, they also have sleeker Genesis and Pure versions available as well as the Penguin version with dishwasher safe, glass bottles. SodaStream fountains do not use batteries or any additional energy and help you save money while saving the CO2 footprint on the earth, which is not always something that can be achieved at the same time!
I was delighted to find that SodaStream sodas had fewer calories, carbs, sugar, sodium and caffeine than leading store brands so I also making a healthier choice for my family. For example:
|SodaStream Lemon Lime||36||9g||9g||25mg||0mg|
They have dozens of flavors to choose from, both in diet and regular mixes and even have links on their website of ideas for drink and cooking recipes. The recipes really highlight the versatility SodaStream has in your home whether you are entertaining, cooking or quenching thirst for the masses that pass through your home. They have a program to refill your carbon tanks at a discount, but you can also get a refill exchange at retailers locally, depending out where you live.
To save the most money I would recommend buying the flavors and tank refills in bulk to qualify for free shipping and to take advantage of their promotions such as the buy 10 get the 10th free for soda flavors. We are loving the ability we have to have soda when we want, in quantities we want and feel great knowing that we are doing our part to reduce our eco-footprint while saving money in our pocket books.
