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’ve been hearing about this product for so long – but you could only get it in the states and all the giveaways were only open to US when this was the prize. Thought they were neat then and now that they’re available here I’m even more intrigued.
When I first saw these I thought how handy it would be to have one. There are so many flavours to choose from and we could have pop when we wanted.
