Favorite Things Kitchen Edition: SodaStream and GIVEAWAY

Welcome to the first installment of
Favorite Things: Kitchen Edition!
I am starting with one of my most FAVORITE THINGS EVER.
This is a necessity on my house...seriously!

The SodaStream Home Soda Maker

I am giving one away,
thanks to the awesome people at SodaStream!

Last year for our wedding anniversary, hubby and I bought a SodaStream.
We had been wanting one and figured the time was right!

My kids were thrilled...they were fascinated.
I think they thought they would be drinking soda all day long....
that did not happen. I won't lie,
I wish I could drink soda all day long...but I don't.

The main reason we purchased the SodaStream was to make our own carbonated water - a.k.a. fizzy water. We were going through at least one bottle a day...
lots of money when you add it up (and lots of waste too!).

We started using that SodaStream the night we brought it home
and have used it every day since we bought it.
We make a bottle of fizzy water every day.
And yes, my kids do get to make soda...not all the time,
but they love it as a treat and they love to make it when we have guests.

SodaStream has an amazing variety of soda flavors and syrups:
Good old favorites like Cola and Cherry Cola,
Sparkling Naturals like Black Currant Pear,
MyWater Essence Flavors and
even including Crystal Light and Country Time flavors. 

They taste amazing!
No joke...I need a T-shirt that says
"I (heart) SodaStream."
My raves have even convinces many a friend to purchase a SodaStream too!

Here is how it works...
it assembles in seconds, pop in the carbonator
screw the bottle in, push the button to add the carbonation and your favorite soda flavor...and presto you have soda!

Seriously...that easy
Just want fizzy water, skip the soda flavor.
And guess what in the year we have had the SodaStream...
we are only on our 3rd cartridge.
When a carbonator is out, just take it to the store in your area 
(you exchange it and buy a new one) or order a carbonator kit online.

OK, now to the good stuff.
Here is what
Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit

  1. My daughter and I were just looking at these in Target! I think we'd like to try the Creme Soda first - and then maybe some of the fruit flavors!

  2. Lemon Lime! Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I want one...it's no secret....I may cry if I don't get one soon...

    I would try the sugar free cola first and then go from there aiming to try ever single flavor and option there is!

  4. This is such a great gadget. We really don't drink soda here but it could be fun to make your own sodas.

  5. I would love to win this. It would be an awesome Christmas present. I would be very anxious to try the classic flavors such as coke. I wonder do they taste the same. :)

  6. We have been thinking of getting one for ages, but have yet to bite the bullet.

  7. I've been dying to try one of these! We love to drink tonic at our house.

  8. Well the sodamaker looks awesome in the pictures...I believe that it should be useful in reality also...good effort by Holly...keep it up!

  9. Sugar free cola and the cherry cola. I have really wanted to try this.

  10. I love cherry flavoring but my favorite use of this would be just to carbonate the water and throw a slice of lime in!

  11. I like the idea of flavored waters!

  12. I really want to make my own "Orangina" with carbonated orange juice!

  13. Saw how much the kids loved it! Have been thinking about getting one...now I could maybe win one. Cool!! Sugar free soda and NO CRV here I come!!

  14. This sounds awesome Holly!

  15. Pineapple Grapefruit is the one I'd pick!

  16. I would try the Orange Pineapple. :)

  17. I want one of these soooo bad! I am a soda junkie so I would use ALL the flavors!

  18. I'm also most interested in "fizzy water"! We go through so much of that around here. Also, the pear and black currant sparkling natural sounds really good.

  19. Orange Mango, Apple Mango, Pineapple Grapefruit, Orange Pineapple, Green Tea--do I have to pick just one?

  20. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Bee Craft Inspirations, under the Page 1 post on Sep. 13, 2012. Thanks again.

  21. I have wanted to get one of these to try but wasn't sure if it truly did work or was just a gimic. After reading your post, I'm convinced I need this. My grandkids are always over and expect Nana to have something good to eat and drink ...... so this would be a life saver for me. Pineapple Grapefruit sounds refreshing. Thank you for your post.

  22. I would love to try out Crystal Light Lemonade :)


  23. Black currant and pear...I love Black currant and so may never bother to try anything else...maybe for my kids. LOL. My husband wants to try this with his Ginger Beer recipe to provide the carbonation instead of using the starter. He thinks it would be faster and more consistent.


  24. I think I'd like the try the Cherry Cola. It's my favorite soda!

  25. I'm a cola girl here... would love to try it with my grenadine

  26. I'd love to try the equivalent of Dr. Pepper.
