Soda Stream Canada ~ Review

I was over the moon when I received my Soda Stream starter kit.
It is one of those items that I have been eyeing for a long time.  Now I don't have to wait and it is now sitting in my kitchen and being used often.


Who is Soda Stream?
They have a fascinating history that dates back to 1903.  After so many years of improving and re-branding their product, they have become a chic soda maker that every household should have.


We are big pop drinkers but over time we had to cut back because of the increase of cost on pops.  According to their calculation, you could save money using this machine than purchasing pop/soda at the store.  Not including the cost of the machine, Soda Stream states that my machine, which makes 1L bottle would cost me $0.30 per litre and a flavoured for about $0.88 per litre before shipping charges.  Hence it will cost me $1.76 for a two litre bottle.  It is still cheaper if regular pop does not go on sale.  Also, they have a huge selection of flavours that are not available elsewhere.  Not all flavours that are sold in the US are available in Canada so I will just add that to my shopping list when I go across the border next year.

One cylinder of CO2 can carbonate up to 60 liters of water.  When I am finished with the cylinder, I can go to one of the participating retailers and to return it and pay for a new one cylinder for C$17.99.  I am only paying for the carbon.  It is like a propane tank exchange program - exchange a empty one for a full one.

Three (3) pumps of carbon is equivalent to a standard carbon in other drinks.  If I want more or less, I can determine how much carbon I want in it by pumping more or less into the water.  It does not matter what water I use like tap water or bottle water, it taste better if the water has been chilled first.


Top 10 12 reasons why you should get one this holiday season:
1. It will look very chic in your kitchen
2. It is a conversational piece that everyone would want to try and taste it.
3. It is lightweight
4. Does not need to be plugged into electrical socket
5. Easy to use, the directions are so easy to understand.
6. Environmentally friendly
7. Healthier choice
8. It is available online and in selected retail stores
9. Tastes great
10. Huge selection of flavours and even more are coming out
11. In the long run, this machine would be more cost effective than regular priced pop bottles.
12. You control the carbon that is in the drink

This holiday season, don't forget to check out Soda Stream.  You might be surprised how much you might fall in love with it and walk away with one or two...(don't forget one for the office or a loving relative).  Hands down, this is a great product.

Check the website for your closest retailer like The Bay, Sears, Home Outfitters, and Canadian Tire.

  17. I would love to try this it just has to be better than pop

  18. Wow what an amazing idea. We consume a fair bit of pop in my home and it would be great to control the carbonation and flavor. I love how it does not impact the environment the way bottles and cans do. It would be great to not have to reach around the open cans of pop in the fridge being de-carbonized *my sons term* because we find many brands to fizzy. The Soda Stream just made it to the top of my GGOTTA HAVE IT list.
