When Alex and I attended the 2012 International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago in March, we had the opportunity to try out the SodaStream in home soda maker for the first time.
Visiting the SodaStream booth is also where this magical moment happened.
Being a HUGE fan of diet soda, I was worried that I wouldn’t like the diet soda as much as I do the name brand.
I was soooooo wrong.
We have now been using a SodaStream in our house the last 5 days and everyone is hooked.
We have been using the SodaStream Fountain Jet which is the entry level model and a family-friendly global best-seller.
I have to agree, it is definitely family-friendly. The kids have already mastered making their own soda!
I wanted to introduce our family to the SodaStream because it is more convenient, Earth-Friendly, healthier, economical and quick and easy to use!
According to SodaStream, we drink over 40 gallons of fizzy drinks per capita each year,
and we spend about $40B annually on packaged soda. Our love affair with fizz certainly
isn’t going away any time soon, but neither are all of the empty bottles and cans,
or the transport miles associated with all of those bubbles.
