Review- SodaStream Power

SodaStream

Brought to you by Nuffnang and SodaStream

Growing up, the thing I loved the most about visiting my grandmother was getting to play with her SodaStream. Oh it was magic how it could turn my water fizzy! Sometimes I was allowed to add a splash of lime cordial as well. It was sooo exciting!

 Now, as an adult with two teenagers I can see why, with four kids, she thought the Sodastream was the perfect solution. It turns tap water into sparkling minteral water in seconds and there is no endless bottles of soda water or soft drink to keep buying (and running out of when hoards of teenagers are in your house!) Basically if you have running water you have an endless supply of sparking water.

I love it because I’m not that great at drinking a lot of water (or of anything) so making the water sparkling gives it a bit more appeal. It’s especially refreshing on hot days. (Oh and sometimes I still add some lime cordial to it!)

The kids love it because it’s endless drinks. There is a massive range of different flavours that you can buy. They cost around $6.50 each and make a whole lot of litres so it’s much more economical than buying soft drinks.

So how does it work?

Your SodaStream comes with a gas cylinder- it makes around 60 litres of carbonated water before you need to change it. A new cylinder costs you around $50 but if you take your old one back to be refilled then you only pay $20. This means it’s saving on the landfill from gas cylinders as well as plastic bottles.

You also get refillable plastic bottles. You fill these with water and keep them in the fridge. Then, when you want to make yourself a drink you just fizz the water and then add the flavour, if that’s what you want.

Did you know that one SodaStream BPA free PET carbonating bottle saves the average household 2,190 bottles from being landfilled or ending up in our parks and beaches, over its 3 year lifespan? That’s a massive difference you are making to the environment.

NOTE that you must add the flavour AFTER you fizz because otherwise it will clog up your machine.

Your SodaStream Power now comes with any easy way to decide how bubbly you want your water too- just choose the setting you like the most!

SodaStream Power is the perfect gift this Christmas… so we are giving you one valued at AUD $199.00 to win! Just tell us in the comments below how you like to drink your sparkling water!

    I love that you now have the ability to control the fizz. I’d love to be cheeky here and say I love my soda with a shot of gin but I also don’t mind a bit of what I like to call sassy soda water. Splash of lemon, slice of cucumber and a sprig of mint.

    My favourite soda stream flavour is the sour grapefruit.

    I LOVE to drink water- but it has to be over ICE and cold!!! But flavors added would be amazing to give it some variety! And then my kids would love to try the caffeine free sodas!

    I have two kids and soda water is a health alternative to soft drink! Our kids actually only have soda water all year round as their special drink!
    The kids favourite is adding a little amount of logenberry juice and a squeeze of lime/ mint
    Adult version (and festive times) includes a little pineapple juice, soda water, vodka mint served with cucumber slice! Perfect

    Hi,
    I had a soda stream when I was a kid and I loved it! I loved the creaming soda flavour and I especially loved showing off in front of my friends! It was like magic! I would love my kids to have the same experience!

    I like to spruce up my sparkling water with a little elderflower cordial, a sprig of mint from the garden, and a crushed strawberry or two for colour. Although, when the baby is awake (which is always) I usually only have time to drink it straight. I mean, (*puts on activewear*) “raw”… bubbles are paleo, right?! 😉

    My husband loves to drink the soda stream every day just as sparkling water! My 2 yr old is obsessed with it too & loves her “izzy” water…(fizzy that is)!

    On Monday I’d add a lemon slice to my sparkling water. It’s a healthy way to kick start my crazy week!

    On Tuesday I’d add a splash of raspberry cordial to my sparkling water. It’s been a favourite since I was a kid.

    On Wednesday I’d close my eyes while drinking my sparkling water dreaming of an island getaway. This will keep me motivated to get through the week!

    On Thursday I’d add extra cola flavouring to my sparkling water. I love a cola hit!

    On Friday I’d add a few cubes of ice to my sparkling water. It would cool me down after a hot exhausting week.

    On Saturday I’d add lime and bitters to my sparkling water. It goes well with my Saturday night coconut macaroon treat baked by the kids.

    On Sunday I’d add fresh mint to my sparkling water. Keeping it green and quenching usually after a tiring day gardening.

    A Sodastream would be helpful, exciting, hydrating, fizzy, fun, healthy and sometimes with a bit of added naughty sweetness everyday of the year! Merry Christmas
