SodaStream Canada Review & Giveaway

There’s a new product that is sweeping the beverage industry in Canada! SodaStream allows you to make your own carbonated beverages in an environmentally friendly way.

SodaStream turns tap water into sparkling water in just seconds! SodaStream has over 30 flavors, including diet flavors, teas, cola, fruit flavors and energy drinks. Personally I am trying to drink more water so I’m excited about their selection of flavoured waters.

We were recently sent the SodaStream Genesis Green machine to review and I have to tell you I was hesitant, I really expected the drink to be disappointing. I was wrong. We were given a sample pack of different varieties which our family enjoyed. One nice feature of SodaStream drinks is that we can control how much syrup we add to suit our tastes.

Setting up the SodaStream was a breeze, they included diagrams so I couldn’t make a mistake. My daughter was right there with me, enjoying being in charge of our review.

Step 1: Fill the bottle with tap water and screw onto machine

Step 2: Push the button to carbonate to desired “Fizziness”. The instructions suggested 3 pushes which works for us.

Step 3: Tilt the bottle forward and screw off slowly, allowing the carbonation to activate

Step 4: Add in your flavoured syrup, adjust the amount to your taste.

Step 5: Give it a few gentle shakes to fully combine the flavour

The Result: A great bottle of soda or sparkling water that everyone can enjoy!

There are many models available on the SodaStream website, you can choose one which suits your decor.

The main benefits of SodaStream:

  • Each cylinder makes 60 L of pop
  • Each bottle of syrup flavour makes 12 L of pop for $7
  • Wide variety of flavours
  • Reduces the number of bottles my family uses
  • Diet flavours are sweetened with Sucralose and Acesulfame potassium and contain no aspartame
  • Less sugar than regular sodas. Pepsi has 41 grams of sugar, while the SodaStream cola has only 9 grams

    I’d love to win because I would finally have an excuse to kick my family off the pop habit. We don’t drink much, but I think it would be good all the same to start weaning them off the pop.

  2. cathy canton says

    We love to drink Soda, but are trying to be healthier so this would be a great way to be healthier and still have our pop too!

  6. says

    The SodaStream has fascinated our family for awhile, but my big question is: how much of a hassle is the carbonator? Have you have to replace the one it came with yet?

  7. Howard Mock says

    I am tied of buying soda and having to get rid of the bottles. Soda stream is easy to make and have all anyone needs to enjoy a great drink

  8. Carrie-Lynn Biro says

    We’ve been wanting one of these since I first hear about them. I like the fact that if you look over everything, it’s better then normal pop. My husband goes through a lot of it, and this is a much cheaper option.

  9. caryn s says

    My husband and I do not like the same kinds of pop so when we open a bottle of pop each, they go flat before we can finish them so we often find ourselve buying the more expensive smaller bottles. This would be saving us a little bit of money and alsop giving us so many more options of drinks at the same time!
