Soda Stream Review


I never knew I could make my own soda at home and make sure it does not have preservatives or other bad things in it!!  Now with Soda Stream you can make delicious soda at home for a fraction of the price of buying it at a store.  :)  YAY!  I am also a fan of not using tons of cans or plastic that are bad for the environment so this is a really "green" system.  

Soda Stream also makes carbonated flavored water which is perfect for me because I try not to drink too much soda but adding a little flavor and fizz is great for me!  :) They also carry energy drinks, teas, Crystal Light, Lemonades, diet and regular sodas.  

Soda Stream is easy to use but it does take a little practice at getting the carbonation just right.  Also make sure you measure the syrup out and not guess or you might ruin a batch of soda.  I did a good job of measuring but I did end up tossing a couple batches because of the carbonation, one too little one too much.  

I was happy to have this system right in time for the 4th of July!  We had a party at our house and we made several drinks to share and everyone seemed to enjoy them.  

Soda stream has lots of fun recipes right one their site and I bet some of you could create your own too.  

Where can you find a Soda Stream?  You can buy online or several stores such as Sears, Staples, Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, Wal-Mart, Kohls, and many more!  


 Why buy and use Soda Stream?

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
