I have your button on my blog: www.thetwinners.com #2

I love pop/soda & would drink it all day long if it was not so bad for me. I was on a really bad kick of drinking pop & drank about a 12 pack a day. Do you know how many calories are in that much pop? Plus the bad side effects such as my heart skipping beats from way to much sugar/caffeine. My cholesterol is elevated from thyroid problem so consuming that much sugar only adds to the cholesterol problems.

Since February I have proudly given up my pop addiction and only drink it on special occasions. I do have a caffeine free pop that only has sugar & I drink about ½ can everyday maybe more every once in awhile. Another bad thing I did learn about drinking pop is that it pulls calcium off of your bones (laymen terms). After 30 your body tends not to form bone mass as it did in the earlier years.



I grew up drinking pop & even have a picture of me in my highchair with a glass bottle of pop. Ok glass given to a child under 12 probably isn’t the best idea. The highchair stain/paint probably had lead in it hahahaha. Wow give your baby some pop loaded with sugar so you can rot their teeth out lol. How times have changed & what we know. I will definitely let my mom read this review.

I am so lucky to get to review the SodaStream & the big bonus of giving one away!!! We received several different samples of the Flavored Sodamix. My favorite is the Cola because it just tasted really good. I also enjoyed the Energy but for me it would be occasional because the flavor is too heavy.

Tim had a really good idea for the use of the Root Beer. We have vanilla ice cream & we added the root beer flavor to make Root Beer Floats. It was yummy from what I was told & the kids really enjoyed it. I don’t care much for Root Beer Flavoring so I didn’t try that one. The Lemonade flavor was awesome & I really really loved it & I was not alone in my opinion.

We also got several samples of the diet varieties. Our family isn’t too big on diet drinks. I have tried to drink them when I first gave up pop but it just doesn’t taste right to me. So I let my friend who only drinks diet pop a chance to try the Diet Flavors. She said her favorite was the diet cream soda because it mostly resembled cream soda. She also loved the diet cola. 

I am not too big on flavoring my water but I actually really liked the MyWater Flavor Essences. They will give your water a little kick & the kids loved it which I didn’t think they would.


The money saved is a great value for the quality of the product. Plus it’s fun for the kids & gives them a little extra treat. I also like that I can have the same great taste with a huge reduction in calories. SodaStream has only 34 calories compared to 100 calories in Coke. Also, if you are a big Diet Soda drinker SodaStream uses Splenda instead of Aspartame. If you don’t know anything about Aspartame look it up & you will see why Splenda is a better choice.


Another good reason I really love the SodaStream is that it cuts down on waste. I would usually buy cans & this way I don’t have any cans to store until I recycle. I only have cups & a bottle to wash instead of producing a ton of trash. I only have the bottles of the Sodamix Flavors bottle which can be recycled.

One lucky person will win a Fountain Jet Starter Kit with their choice of 3 full-sized flavors & a sample pack of flavors!!!!!!
