My husband LOVES his Hanukkah gift this year (yeay!). We first discovered the SodaStream from his sister, little did he know when we visited recently (and he got to play with it) that one was already on its way. (Am I an awesome wife or what?) It arrived just in time for Hanukkah, and while my daughter was enjoying her new battery-operated Jeep my husband enjoyed a home-bubbled beverage.
The SodaStream is a cool kitchen gadget that allows you to carbonate your favorite beverage. Love seltzer water, have it on demand. How about cola or root beer, snap. Flavored bubbly water, at home anytime. For a husband who loves all things bubbly, it is like a dream come true. (And for the wife who never knows what to get him, perfect.)
Check it out in action:
And how does it taste? Yummy!
So far we’ve tried the Cranberry/Raspberry and the Root Beer, both were good. The Root Beer was no A&W, but it was still good. More importantly, it was fun. (BTW – we have decided that we like double the amount of flavor suggested, which is 2 small cap fulls.) They also have diet flavors and natural flavors available too.
In addition to the novelty of making soda at home, SodaStream is environmentally friendly too. When your carbonation canisters run out of CO2, you can turn in the old one for a refill that is both easy on the environment and your wallet (refills are cheaper than buying a new container). Plus since the canister is reusable, it eliminates waste (and storage).
The SodaStream is such a hit, my father-in-law bought one for my mother-in-law for Hanukkah too. Yes, we are now a home soda making family. There are several SodaStream models, we have the Fountain Jet.
My next test, I am thinking about carbonating apple juice for my daughter for New Year’s Eve.
