You'll never drink plain water again
on November 3, 2013
I bought this for my husband, in part to cut down on the 80 trillion empty cans of La Croix we were putting in the recycling every week. Plus, it seemed fun and gadgety, and it is! It basically does exactly what it promises -- make carbonated water again and again and again. We go through several bottles every week. We bring the empty cartridges to Target and buy refills there for around $15. The Soda Stream came with a bunch of flavors, most of which we found disgusting, but we're not big sweetened soda drinkers. We ordered some of the Monin flavored syrups used for Italian sodas, and those taste much more natural. The seltzer is also great for cocktails. Our dog walker claims to have used his Soda Stream to carbonate milk (note: we are not endorsing this idea). We bought a few extra plastic bottles so we would never run out and be forced to drink non-fizzy water (the horror!). Along with our dog and cat, the Soda Stream is a well-loved member of our household.
