SMM Review:
We received the newest Sodastream product, Source, and a huge variety of their soda and drink flavors to review.
Setup: The product was really easy to set up!  It only took 5-10 minutes to open the box, read the instructions and get everything ready for our use.  I love when something comes out of the box practically ready to use!
Use: The use of this product is also very simple.  Just fill the reusable drink bottle to the fill-line with tap water.  Then, lock it into place on the machine and push the top of the machine down to carbonate.  After you carbonate the water, you just add one cap-full (more or less for your taste) of your favorite flavor, flip the bottle upside down a time or two and it's ready to drink!
Taste: We initially tried the Sparkling Naturals Pink Grapefruit and it tasted really good! It was awesome that we could make it at home and not have to buy a giant bottle/box of cans from the store that we would never finish.  Since the initial trial, we have tried several of the other flavors, including Cola, Root Beer, Sparkling Naturals Ginger Ale and Black Currant Pear, and MyWater Flavor Essence Lemon Lime, Raspberry, and Orange.  We definitely love them all, but my favorites are the Black Currant Pear and the MyWater Flavor Essence in Lemon Lime! 
Customizable:The biggest turn off for me for soda (besides the ridiculous chemicals) is that it's too carbonated and gives me a stomach ache or indigestion sometimes.  With the Sodastream Source, this problem is solved as there are three levels of carbonation that I can set my soda to.  I definitely prefer the lowest setting and my husband prefers setting #3 (the highest), so we alternate between these.  It's really easy to achieve the level of carbonation, as there are three lights on the front of the unit and when you hold down the top to carbonate, you just let go when your level lights up. Mine literally takes like a second!
Cleanup: With the Sodastream products, cleanup is pretty much nonexistent.  You just rinse the bottle with hot water when you finish the drink and then it's ready to go!
Environmentally Friendly: As a added bonus, you are not only saving a ton of money on soda/drinks a year, but you are also doing the environment a huge favor! Instead of filling landfills with plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and caps, we are reusing the same bottle(s) and getting all of the enjoyment of custom soda at a fraction of the cost!

Overall, this product just makes sense for any family!  It is friendly on your wallet, time, home, health, and environment!  Not to mention it's just fun!

  3. I'm really interested in the water flavors. Normally I'm a huge fan of colas, but I've tried SodaStream's cola and can taste the Splenda. It's not for me. But that's okay, I'm more interested in carbonating water and juices and dropping soda altogether!

  19. I want to win because I buy so much soda that it would save me a ton of money, and it would get my kiddo off soda for the most part and just get him drinking carbonated juices which aren't real cheap either but he loves them.
