What a great load of samples I was sent. What to try first?
Well the kids and I set up our “soda station” in our wet bar area. We watched the video on how to make soda stream and we were off.
This was my favorite, it tasted more like a flavored water. The best part you can adjust the flavorings to save on calories and still get the sweetness in a drink.
I am thrilled with my SodaStream and especially because I can make quick Sangria any time. What is this you ask? Ever open a bottle of wine and think wow this is not that great, but it would taste good as sangria? A traditional sangria recipe asks for many ingredients and often to sit for a while for flavors to meld. Not this type, just add some lemon lime soda–which I can not make on a whim with my SodaStream- and cut up fruit to your wine for a quick and refreshing Sangria.
When we were at Target recently my kids found the SodaStream display and were begging for us to get some new flavors. There are over 100, not at Target, but available through SodaStream. I suggested we wait until we get through our samples, I must admit I am excited to try the lemonades and power drinks.
A final note, I love that I can also use our filtered water to make these drinks. I also wonder how easy it will be to find an exchange location for the carbonators. But each one makes 60 liters of soda so that should be a while. Overall, we really have been enjoying this environmentally friendly product!
