I can not say I was jumping up and down to get a sodastream. I though my children and husband would like it but worried it might not be worth the space and at worst might be just as unhealthy as normal soda. I really didn’t get why there was such hype over it. As it turns out, it is not hype at all. This product is fantastic! It is important you know this so you can know why this review is so sparkling now.
I think the reason why at first I didn’t understand the pull of it was because we are not really soda drinkers. The kids order it when out of the house sometimes, and at friends and families home. At our home though, it is rare as it is just not healthy with so many food coloring issues, HFCS, and artificial sweeteners. That is, till now.
I am so thankful to be a reviewer of this product! I had no idea it could be so “crunchy” friendly as a replacement for the soda so many are addicted to.
Setup was easy and directions where not hard either but they do need to followed correctly. My husband and oldest daughter both made a bit of a mess the first time. So know this tip. Fizz as directed 3-5 times. Hold the button down till it yells at you! The noise is not a pleasant one till you know it means your doing it right! Once you get it right there is no mess! One of the other great things is that ours did not need a battery of any kind and no plug making where we put it less of an issue.
On our busy counter to show littlecrunchy readers the product in a real home. Excuse the canning jars and other things not normally on our counter!
My husband being my demonstrator shows us the steps:
