Back 2 Blogging #49 – Soda Stream Review/Giveaway ENDED

Tonight we are going to do a partial written and partial video review.  The Soda Stream system comes in four different models but we are going to spotlight the Fountain Jet because that is the one we got..  It came with the fountain jet soda maker, 110-litre carbonator & two carbonating bottles.  We also got a large variety of soda mixes which included diet cola, pink grapefruit, diet ginger ale, orange caffeine free, lemon lime, cranberry raspberry cream soda and rootbeer.  On top of the soda mixes we received an energy drink mix as well as 3 pack of my water.
You can get over 25 different flavors of soda mix, and since you only use a small capful each time you make it the mixes will last quite some time.  The full size soda mixes (500 ML) cost 4.99 each, here we pay 2.99 for a bottle of pop so we are certainly saving a TON of money making our own and one bottle makes the equivalent of 12 llitres (about 33 cans).  If you are unsure what flavors you may prefer you can always get the Soda Mix Variety pack which comes with 12 mixes (6 regular and 6 diet) each pack makes 1 litre of pop.  The twelve flavors include Energy Drink, Pete’s Choice, Root Beer, Fountain Mist, Lemon-Lime, Orange, Diet Cola, Diet Lemon-Lime, Diet Root Beer, Diet Pete’s Choice, Diet Cranberry-Raspberry and Diet Pink Grapefruit.  The soda mix is naturally and artificially flavored with a very low level of sodium. It contains no sugar, no high-fructose corn syrup and no aspartame additives.
There is also an energy drink mix which is comparable to red bull.  They recommend that consumption takes place within 3-4 months upon ordering and that the syrup container is kept in a cool, dry place. The soda mix is kosher under the supervision of the Orthodox Union Ⓤ. 
The gas refills costs vary depending on the bottle you need but you can exchange your old empty bottle which is a bonus because that means one less thing to the landfill.  You get two 1 litre carbonating bottles with each Soda Stream starter kit but you can purchase more if you feel you need more, the twin pack is 14.99 for the regular bottles and if your like my family and lose things you can even get a replacement cap for your carbonating bottle for 1.99 for a twin pack.

Soda Stream is very eco-friendly because you will reuse the same bottles over and over which means you don’t have bottles or cans to recycle or throw away, you can save thousands of containers a year for a family of four because the carbonating bottles lasts for three years.

Now i have told you all about the soda stream and the mixes but I have not told you how it works, the reason being is I took a video for you all to see.
