My hubs likes soda. A lot. On average, we go through 7-8 2 liter bottles of soda a week, which is costly and wasteful. Yes, I recycle the bottles, but that is still a ton of plastic per week! So last weekend he attempted to make his own ginger ale in a re-used bottle. It tasted good, but the yeast carbonation was a total fail. He went to Best Buy the next day and purchased a SodaStream soda machine.
So here it is. We've had it for a few days and have been making sodas with the samples that came with it. I think we have decided to make our own syrups and cut out the fake stuff. The syrups are made with Splenda, but I can taste the difference from something made with natural cane sugar.
I stopped at Bed, Bath, and Beyond this morning and got two extra bottles for making sodas, and the Raspberry MyWater Essence Flavors so that I could try some "seltzer" style water.
