My husband and I are huge soda drinkers. We would go through eight to ten 12-packs a week. Storing all those 12-packs was a nightmare, even with 2 refrigerators. We would keep the extra ones in the trunk of the car or in a closet, it was stupid.
Not to mention all the cardboard and aluminum used for packaging that had to be recycled. That means even after we drank the soda, we were stuck with the "trash" all week until the recycling came, which took up even more space(which we are already short on).
Another thing I hated about buying the 12-packs, is it's harder to mix up the flavors. You don''t always know when you will be craving a certain flavor, but there is no way you can keep 40 12-packs on hand just in case. That also made entertaining harder, as there was not always something for everyone.
Last year, though, we changed all that. We got a Soda Stream Genesis, and it was a total 360. No more cans, or cardboard. No more limited selection and hoping your guests like what you have. That is because Soda Stream lets you make your very own soda, right in your kitchen, in just minutes.
This year we decided to upgrade to the new Soda Steam Source.
The Source is so sleek looking. It looks great on my counter and fits easily under my cabinets. It does not take up much space, so I don't have to drag it out and put it away, it just sits on the ready. It gets used so much that putting it away would be pointless anyway.
What I really love about the Source is how much simpler it is to use. Instead of screwing the bottle on, you simply hold it on there and push the whole thing back toward the machine.
Then to carbonate, you just hold down the "block" until the light reaches your desired fizz level.
Of course, the best part is actually making the soda. It is so much fun, but even better, it is delicious.
Hubby's favorite is still the Cola Free, because it is the same as "Zero" colas, which is what we used to buy already. He is less adventurous with flavors than I a, which is what makes this so perfect for us. Now we can both have exactly what we want on hand at all times.
The Soda Stream makes entertaining so much easier too. I HATE Ginger Ale, so we never buy it. Of course, many people love it, and when we have guests, I would get asked for it all the time. Now I have a bottle of the Natural Ginger Ale Mix in the cupboard. It is much better than having to say we don't have any.
All of that is what makes Soda Stream such a great gift. Give the gift of style, innovation, flavor, convenience and even better health(Soda Steam mixes are better for you than soda). Soda Stream is perfect for almost anyone on your list. The College student, the newlyweds, the large family, the single friend, the grandma, whoever. Anyone who drinks any sparkling beverages will LOVE the Soda Stream.
