Now that I am on the Nutrisystem plan I am pretty limited to what I can and cannot drink. When I say limited I can pretty much have all the water I want and diet drinks are OK. However, not everyone likes the taste of a diet drink, and I am one of those people. I don’t mind the diet uncola drinks but even those get pretty boring after a while. That isn’t the case with SodaStream because you can flavor your water to just about any flavor that is out there!
What could be better for a woman on a diet?
I was super excited when my Genesis machine showed up with a ton of different flavors to try out! I think Thaddeus was just about as excited as I was when I told him we could now make pop at home. A product really can’t do any better than getting a thumbs up from a kid. I mean, really? Who’s more honest about things than a kid? While Thaddeus was having his first drink I asked him how it was.
I love the fact that out of the many different flavors we received in our package they are all from 0 to 100 calories per serving! You know what that means? Well, all of the ones with no calories I can drink as much as I want. That’s right, that just means it’s flavored water with some fizz to it. That is going to make it so much easier for me to get my 8 glasses of water in a day.
You know what else is great? The fact that you can get name brand drinks for it, like Country Time and Crystal Light. Each SodaMix contains enough syrup to make about 33 cans of pop all for about $9.99 or less.
The SodaStream is easy to use. I put it together, just a couple of pieces snap together and added the carbonator bottle and then attached the carbonating bottle and Thaddeus was making pop in no time. You just press a button down a few times until the machine buzzes at you and you are done. You can press the button more to add more carbonation but once it buzzes the first time that is the normal amount of carbonation. Just how easy is it you ask? Well, here’s a video of Thaddeus doing it all on his own!
If that doesn’t show how easy it is to use, than there is no way to convince you.
The taste you ask?
Well. I’ll have to leave that up to each individual drinking it. For me, there are some flavors that are good and some that are not so good. It does take some time to get used to. Some of the regular drinks do taste like they are diet, which isn’t always good. Thaddeus has liked every flavor we have made for him so far; which includes Orange, Root Beer, and Cola (that’s what he’s making in the video).
