SodaStream Fountain Jet Review

*I received a complimentary product for review in change for my honest thoughts and opinions.*

Okay guys, show of hands, who hear drinks soda? *raises hand*
Now out of those of you who drink soda, who admit that you do? *shy's hand away*

I love, love, love, me some Coco-Cola and Pepsi. It's a weakness. Having a burger & fries, or pizza without it is pretty much the hardest thing ever. Okay maybe not ever, but it just doesn't feel right! It's like eating a peanut butter sandwich- where's the fun in that?! 

One thing that I hate is going out and buying soda. I limit myself on the amount of soda that I drink and it's always such a waste for me to buy 2 liter bottles because I will drink a glass or two and then it goes flat and goes to waste.Thanks to SodaStream, you no longer have to go out and buy soda, you can make it in the comfort of your home, right when you want it!

SodaStream generously sent me their Fountain Jet Starter Kit, along with additional soda flavorings to review for you today! When the SodaStream arrived on my doorstep I couldn't believe how big of a box it arrived in! I was excited to rip it open and when I did, I couldn't believe what was in there. I'm pretty much set on soda for life. Well, maybe not for life, but for a very long while.

SodaStream sells many different types of flavors for your soda whether you want the traditional flavors such as Cola, Root Beer, Lemon Lime (comparable to Sprite or 7UP), or if you want to try out new flavors like Cranberry-Raspberry or Black Current & Pear. You can also purchase flavors from some of your favorite brands like Crystal Lite, Country Time Lemonade, and Kool Aid.

Along with making soda with your SodaStream you can also make sparkling water and flavored sparkling water! SodaStream offers sparkling water flavors called MyWater, giving your water just a slight flavor, rather than a sweet soda like taste.

When you purchase your SodaStream Fountain Jet Starter Kit you will receive the SodaStream Unit, a 1 liter reusable bottle, a carbonating bottle, and a few sample flavors for you to get started on!

Below is a side view of the SodaStream unit so that you can see how sleek it is! Perfect for the counter top!

The carbonating bottle secures into the back of the SodaStream unit and you leave it attached for when you are ready to use it!

I created a video to demonstrate how easy it is for you to make your soda! Below you can see the three things that are needed to make your tasty soda in seconds. You need the SodaStream unit, the reusable bottle filled with cold water, and your flavor of choice. 

Below is the video for you to watch on how simple it is to make your own soda, it's not the best "Vlog" in the world, but I thought it would be easier to SHOW you how to do it rather than to type it out. I don't know about you but I learn better visually. Oh, and Mrs. Bow Jangles took it upon herself to start barking toward the end, sorry for that!

Once your soda is made it is ready to be poured over ice, served with a straw, and enjoyed!

I am in absolute love with my SodaStream, even more so than I thought I would be. As I said prior, I really love Cola and the Cola syrup tastes exactly like a Coco-Cola or Pepsi! I also really love the Cranberry-Raspberry, and the Root Beer is pretty tasty too! I really like that I can have soda, sparkling water, sparkling juice, or sparkling flavored water in just seconds! If you drink soda I recommend getting yourself a SodaStream.

You've made the switch to cloth for your little one,
 now why not make the switch for yourself?


  1. Great review! I am really interested in the Soda stream, my mom is a heavy diet coke drinker, I think it could really reduce our costs.

  2. I so want the Soda Stream and after reading your review I want it even more. I drink a lot of diet soda and it costs a small fortune so being able to make my own at a fraction of the cost is appealing. I had no idea that there were so many flavors to choose from...this would make a great addition to anyone's home. Next time I'm at Walmart I'm going to check out the Soda Stream.

  3. I just got my Soda Stream today so should be ready in the next couple of days to try it out. I am going to watch your video before setting mine up to make sure I got it right. Thanks for the review and the instructions!

  4. I love how easy this makes it to make your own sodas with whatever flavor you want!
