Sodastream giveaway



My family drinks a lot of soda and soda is expensive. I find myself buying one to three 12-packs (currently $4.98 each) a week for the girls, and 2-liters (currently $1.28 each) for me and I'm kind of concerned about the effect this is having on our bodies as well as my budget.

Sodastream soda works out to about 25 cents per can of soda.

You want to know if the sodas taste good. Yes, it taste just like the soda you buy in the store. There are few differences though, There are fewer calories and less sugar in Sodastream sodas. Plus, the soda flavors don't have any high-fructose corn syrup in the regular flavors, and no aspartame in the diet flavors. Sparkling Naturals doesn't have artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners or any preservatives.

Each sodamix is enough to make 12 liters of drink, each sparkling naturals contains enough syrup to make 6 liters of drink, each bottle of MyWater Flavor Essence will flavor about 20 liters of water, you only need half a teaspoon for each liter you make of this! Mixer bottles start around $4.99 and go up to $9.99, depending on the size of the bottle and the flavoring.

With Sodastream is you don't need electricity or batteries to work. This makes it perfect to use anywhere you need it. You don't have to worry about plugging it in on the counter or kitchen table. You can use it where it's most convenient for you.

Because my family is really bad about clutter, I finally told my daughters that instead of trying to keep cans and bottles and redeem them, we should throw them away. That's like throwing nickels in the garbage, but I felt it was necessary as a temporary measure to keep clutter down. With Sodastream, you don't have to deal with redeeming containers - you just use and reuse the same containers. That also means it takes up less space in  your cupboard and you don't have to lug sodas from the store. You can make a fresh soda in seconds anytime you want.

And while you can order Sodastream soda makers and supplies from the company website, they encourage you to shop locally, to save shipping costs.

Here's a video to show how easy it is to use:
