At only $4.99 per mix a SodaStream home soda maker can save a soda lovin’ family some serious money. And even better, making the soda is super fun and easy too!
Plus, for $14.99 you can purchase additional carbonating bottles and give your homemade soda away as gifts! These make fun and creative gifts!
I reviewed the Genesis Soda maker and had nothing but positive things to say about it. I was also sent quite a few flavors and among them I had a few I won’t be drinking again and lots others I look forward to making.
I have a video below with how to make soda using the Genesis. It is super easy! I love that it has no chords and requires no batteries. It is small enough to fit on my counter top without taking up very much precious space. The bottles are not dishwasher safe, but they are not difficult to wash either. Making soda is so quick, but I have to offer this warning: as your pour the flavored syrup into the carbonated water do it slowly! It says this on the bottle, I just want to highlight that fact. I thought I was pouring slowly but it was not slow enough and as soon as the syrup hit the water it fizzed out the top and all over my floor! But now that I have learned how to go slowly it is so much better.
One more excellent thing about the SodaStream soda maker is how much waste it saves us! I am not throwing away countless cans or plastic two litter bottles anymore.
What flavors did I try?
Root beer: Not my favorite, but Lizzie loves it. I thought it tasted more like diet soda than a full root beer
Diet varieties: I tried diet pink grapefruit, diet lemon lime and diet coloa. I was very impressed with the diet drinks! They did not taste very much like diet colas. (This confused me as the Root beer – not diet – did taste like diet)
Ginger Ale: I have never been a fan of ginger ale, so I was biased against it from the start. However, I can say it tastes like all the other ginger ale’s I have tried.
Flavors for carbonated water: These were flavors not syrups. I liked these a lot! I will definitely be buying more of these!
