Soda Stream Jet Starter Set Review

I know you guys are going to go nuts on this one because every time I have one to give away you guys rock my blog! So, here we are again, offering another Sodastream for my Spring Fling Giveaway Hop Event! I am so excited for you guys. The Event starts on March 21st and ends on the April 4th. Open in the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!
Here is what is in the Sodastream Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit ($99.95):

This package includes:
  • Fountain Jet – winner’s choice of color (black/silver, red/silver or white)
  • 1 carbonating bottle, reusable for up to 3 years
  • Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60L of soda
  • Variety 6-pack of popular sample-size flavors
  • 3 full-sized flavor

The Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker comes in either White or Silver/Black. You will also get to choose 3 of your flavors in addition to the Soda-mix Variety Pack that will have 6 flavors. Making carbonated water and soft drinks is simple! Turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds, with no clean-up. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time.

No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With a variety of colors and silhouettes, you'll be sure to find a soda maker that meets with your approval. They even have Kool-Aid now so you can give your children a wide range of flavors other than soda!

or you can try County Time Lemonade!

You can also either replenish your supplies either thru the website or thru their online store or you can go to one of the many retailers that carry their products. Just got to the Store Locator and you will find them in just about all of the home products stores. I know they are at Bed Bath & Beyond and I have also seen them at Macy's but you will see the complete list when you get there.

I know you and your family will find flavors that you all like or can take turns making as there are 60 flavors to choose from! You can also now get Country Time and Crystal Light now, too! Oh wow, I just took a look and they have also added a whole new line of Green Tea flavors that you can make also! You can also get 2 flavors of their version of Red Bull, the energy drink. They have come a long way since they first introduced us to these great machines.

Lastly, I wanted to share with you how Sodastream helps to contribute to the recycling effort with their products:

How Does SodaStream Help the Environment?
SodaStream is an "Active Green" product, meaning that consumers are actively reducing their CO2 footprint every time they make soda or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves. (This differs from "Passive Green" products, which use green-friendly production processes, but their products are not inherently helping the consumers save on their daily footprint.)

Because SodaStream uses water straight from the tap, the system makes traditional store-bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste is created, and fewer bottled beverages must be transported from manufacturers to distributors to stores to homes.

Globally, 206 billion liters of bottled water were consumed in 2008 (Zenith International Global Bottled Water Report, 2008). The energy required to make water bottles in the US only, is equivalent to 17 million barrels of oil (Container Recycling Institute, 2002).

According to the US Recycling Institute, more than 80% of bottles in the US do not get recycled and end up in landfills. Also, an estimated 4.7 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions were produced in the process of replacing the 134 billion bottles and cans not recycled in 2005.

Using your own home carbonation system means:

•Less packaging waste from cans and bottles.
•Less pollution caused by transport of bottled beverages.

One SodaStream carbonator makes 60 or 110 liters, equivalent to 170 or 310 aluminum cans! When empty, the carbonator is refilled and reused, ready to make more fizzy and tasty soda whenever you want it.

I would like to try this, however I do have to note that Soda Stream has it's main manufacturing plant in Israel in areas of disputed settlements, which makes me feel a tad uncomfortable with the company. Still looks like it would be fun to use and would save on bottles and trips to the recycling center

Sandra VanHoey said...

With as much soda as we drink here, this would be perfect for us and save us lots of money

Kelly Tupick said...

I would absolutely love one of these. We drink a lot of soda here in this house and this looks easy and fun to use. The kids would love this! I would love to be able to try all those different flavors out there and have a variety to make.

polly said...

I would love to win this for my daughter & her family. It would save them a lot of $$$$$ on sodas! I would love one also!!!!

Marti Tabora said...

I absolutely love this idea. My son drinks a lot of soda and it gets expensive. Having this would be awesome. Thank you.

A neighbor of mine has one of these. She has 5 kids and this machine gets a work out. I didn't know they had Kool aide choices now. I'm not much on soda but...Kool Aide I am a long time fan of!

Cyndi F said...

I have seen these in stores but o wow been wanting one they look cool!

Ashley-Raye said...

We love our Soda Stream, we use it for seltzer and occasionally soda. We make our own soda syrups, which is a lot of fun and delicious. If I were to win, I would give the SodaStream to my parents.

Dorothy Teel said...

Soda Stream is such a fascinating idea and I think it would save a lot of money and I would love to use it to make green teas and hubby would like for grape koolaide for him and granddaughters. I like that this would save the old back from carrying heavy bottles in and out of the house, thank you for this review.

desiree reilly said...

Jennifer Hiles said...

I actually have a Soda Stream and the kids have so much fun with it. I was at the store the other day and saw kool-aid mix for them.

tanya holland said...

I would love to have one of these. I don't drink soda but this would be great for my teenage son.

Mer said...

Wow! I didn't realize there were so many flavor options. I really liked the concept of sodastream because of its environmental impact, but had assumed you'd be limited to a few soda types. The green tea sounds amazing.

Birdie Bee said...

I would love to try one of these to save money as well as save the earth one pop can at a time.

Jay said...

I have been wanting to get one of these! Looks awesome!
