Recently SodaStream got in touch to see if I would like to review one of their new SodaStream machines, of course I would!
I remember as a child my Dad going out and buying us one, we didn’t have many fizzy drinks in our house, so for Dad to get us on of these was a real treat for me and my sister. I remember Dad being as excited as us about it. It was a great boxy looking machine with glass bottles. I’m sure now it would be classed as a retro item, who knows what happened to it.
Now I can share this excitement with my little ones who are only allowed fizzy drinks on our treat days or if we are eating out.
SodaStreams for those who don’t know about them are little magical items that make your tap water into a delicious fizzy drink. You then have the option to add flavour to your carbonated drink.
I choose the icy blue, which looks almost minty green on line but is a real icy blue shade that I love. Although maybe I should have gone for the pale pink, which is super cute.
The SodaStream is very easy to use, your only a couple of simple steps away from your drink. Fill up your SodaStream re-useable bottle with tap water or filtered water to the fill line on the bottle. Ensure your gas bottle is attached correctly, attach the bottle and push the button on top of the machine. Give it a couple of short blasts and you are done!
I love that it’s so simple to use, just make sure the bottle is in correctly, it doesn’t sit on the bottom of the machine, there will be a little gap. So don’t think that it’s not in correctly.
The children love it too, I make sure the bottle is in correctly and they can add their bottle and then push the button to generate the bubbles. It’s great because they love to get involved and its also sugar free, as it’s just tap water. The children now have it in their bottles or we will tip it into glasses for them to enjoy. My advise is to keep a bottle of water in your fridge so you can always have a cold fizzy water, for me I like my water to be cold.
I love my SodaStream
I do love fizzy drinks, I know I really shouldn’t drink them as much as I do. However it’s my plan to use our SodaStream Spirit as much as possible to cut down on the amount of diet coke that I drink. I’m able to take a bottle of the fizzy water with me wherever I go, so I don’t feel the need to buy diet coke on the go.
We try to take our own bottles with us places, we normally all have our drinks bottles with us but this will help cut down the amount of tins and plastic bottles we put into the recycling bin each week.
Not only do SodaStream give you delicious fizzy water, you can buy a selection of flavourings to enhance your experience. Fruit drops, that are only £2.99 each, zero calorie and make 80 servings and they come a range of different fruity flavours. Not only do they sell Fruit Drops but also Soda Press Co retro looking bottles that have a range of retro flavours including cola, lemonade and tonic. I haven’t actually bought any of these yet, but I’m going to order the cola and the tonic. So it will mean I never run out of tonic for my gin………. Yummy!
I really love my SodaStream and I am so grateful to SodaStream for helping me to relive my childhood memories with my little ones.
