When we first learned about the new SodaStream product, we were skeptical. How could a machine make carbonated water taste as good as Coke or Pepsi? Well, SodaStream has not only come up with a convenient way to make soda at home, they also made sure their product has tons of other benefits. Here are five reasons we’re obsessed with SodaStream.
1. Less expensive than buying sodas
Of course, our number one concern is always how much money we can save. So, we were excited to learn that making your own drinks at home with SodaStream can save you lots of cash. At some retailers, you could be paying as much as $6.59 for a 12-pack of Coca-Cola. Aside from the initial $99.95 for the machine, you can buy SodaMix flavors for $4.99-$9.99. These bottles are about the equivalent of 33 cans. So, if your family buys a 12-pack a week, you could be spending as much as $342 a year – that’s nearly a dollar a day.
Just to break it down…
12-pack per week of Coca-Cola @ $6.59 x 52 weeks = $342 a year
SodaStream machine $99 + ($3 a week @ .33 per can x 52 weeks) = $255
Total savings per year, including purchasing a SodaStream $342 - $255 = $87
After you’ve paid for your machine, you’ll net even more money the following year!
2. Great variety of flavors
You’ll never get tired of the flavors SodaStream offers. With more than 60 (!) options, you can choose from traditional cola, ginger ale, or root beer, or branch out to Ocean Spray cranberry or strawberry daiquiri. They also carry varieties of Kool-Aid, Country Time lemonades, and Crystal Light. If you’re trying to be healthier, take advantage of the diet flavors or sparkling teas. The large selection allows you to stick with your favorites or try out new flavors without having to buy multiple 12-packs of different types of drinks.
3. Convenient to use
Remember the days when you would trek to the grocery store, lug heavy 12-packs of soda into your cart, and then have to carry them inside the house? Well, those days are long gone. With SodaStream, you can take advantage of the convenience by making your own beverages at home. It’s easy to store, and you don’t have to worry about batteries or electricity. Plus, the carbonated bottles you use are disposable, so you don’t even have to concern yourself with cleaning it!
4. More eco-friendly
You might try to be environmentally-sound, but it can be a challenge (especially if you drink a lot of sodas). You might find yourself throwing out more and more cans – constantly trying to remember to recycle. That’s what makes the SodaStream so much more eco-friendly – the carbonated bottles are entirely recyclable. You also won’t be going through aluminum cans or drinking as much bottled water. Oh, and one carbonated bottle is equal to about 310 cans, which makes the SodaStream a lot less wasteful. Great flavors and better for the environment. That’s a win-win.
5. Healthier than regular sodas
It’s hard to resist the deliciousness that is soda. It’s refreshing, tasty, and fun to drink. But, you’ve probably heard all the horror stories about how bad soda can be for you. Luckily, SodaStream has come up with a product that is a lot better for your body. All of the regular flavors contain zero high-fructose corn syrup, and they have considerably less calories, carbs, sugar, and sodium. The same serving of Coke or Pepsi would run you about 100 calories versus only 35 calories for the SodaStream version. Additionally, all of the diet flavors are made with Splenda instead of aspartame. There’s no need to abstain from your favorite drinks – just choose SodaStream for a healthier option.
6. It’s fun to use
Aside from all the other great benefits, SodaStream is just plain ol’ fun to use! You can mix your drinks the exact way you want them – with the fizz factor totally up to you. Plus, you’ll never get bored with the huge variety of flavors. If you’re feeling really daring, you can even mix some!
