It’s not often that I find myself really wanting something with a high price tag. I don’t do designer anything, thank you very much. My feeling has always been that if somebody’s name is going to be stamped on a product I own, it should be mine. (Even if it’s only written in magic marker on the back of my underwear. :moon ) And I’d rather have $600 in my $19.95 handbag than in some quadrillionaire’s pocket because s/he designed a pretty purse.
But once in a while…once in a while, something catches my eye. :winkwink
This time, it’s a SodaStream Home Soda Maker.
Seriously…I can make my own carbonated drinks? Why did no one tell me about this before?! :dropmouth
I love carbonated drinks. Frankly, carbonation is the main reason I drink soda at all…& I honestly don’t drink much of it because—diet or regular—I don’t think it’s very good for you. :sick
But this do-it-yourself carbonation trick…it might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to me. :kitty
That being said, I’m not a fan of new gadgetry. I like simple, & I like to know how things work before I actually make a gigantic, expensive purchase.
So does anybody have one of these? Or have you maybe used one…you know, at the house of that friend who always has the latest everything? LOL (I need one of those, btw. :cuffs )
I have a general idea of how it works.
But does buying the flavored drink mix—also supplied by SodaStream—get expensive? And what does it taste like…actual soda or the cheap generic stuff?
What about carbonating other drinks you have on hand? For instance, can I simply carbonate my own iced tea or fruit juices? (Which to me would be a dream come true! :twirl ) Or will the entire thing explode if I try? :oops
And what about “accessories”? You know how every new gadget comes with its own size/shape pitchers, etc…. How often will I need to replace the C02 canister? Or the refillable bottles?
I’m definitely considering one of these, IF it does what I want it to do & isn’t going to end up costing way more on top of the purchase price. So any opinions or feedback you’ve got, I’d love to hear!
Let me know if I should continue to covet one of these…or toss it back on the nevermind pile. :runrun
