How to Make a Soda with the Soda Stream?

My little kids absolutely love making things from scratch, like popcorn, cookies, pancakes, etc. My wife & I love it too. So we were thrilled when SodaStream sent us a starter kit to try out! We had always wanted to learn how to make a soda at home.

The starter kit came with the console, a sturdy bottle, a Co2 cartridge, and several flavors of soda syrup.

SodaStream starter kit

My boys love the lemon/lime flavor, because it reminds them of Sprite. My wife loves the gingerale flavor, and I like the fruity flavors the best. The 500 ml bottles make 50 servings! Here are some popular flavors on Amazon:

[amazon-01]   [amazon-02]   [amazon-03]

[amazon-04]   [amazon-05]   [amazon-06]

 My little boys squeal when we push the button, and they see the bubbles forming in the bottle! My four month old daughter just yawns…I guess some people are hard to please. But this Sodastream is a serious hit at parties.

After over a year, the Sodastream is still working great, and we still haven’t run out of Co2! Here is the Sodastream Jet Starter kit on Amazon (and spare bottles, so you can make multiple flavors for your parties):

    I am an email subscriber and I like that with this machine there no more need to buy, carry or store large quantities of heavy and bulky bottles.

      Kelly, please make sure you look closely at the mandatory instructions. You must copy & paste a line from the amazon description. Hope this helps!

    This part of the Amazon description kinda made me laugh. 😉

    Are SodaStream products kosher?
    SodaStream products are kosher (OU) certified (OU kosher certificate). SodaStream seltzer is kosher for Passover (OUP). Also, please note that your home drink smaker can be used on the Sabbath.

  19. 21

    I subscribe. And Robyn, don’t laugh – that actually is important to me. I keep Kosher and observe the Sabbath :p

    But so that I don’t cheat or copy others, this is my answer:

    How long does the soda last before going flat?
    The hermetic seal on the cap keeps your soda from going flat as quickly as ordinary store-bought beverages. If you make sure to close the cap tightly, and keep the bottle in the refrigerator, your SodaStream soda should remain fizzy and fresh for over a week.

  20. 22

    Hmm – I must say I probably wouldn’t have thought of these on my own:

    “And with over 25 flavors, the possibilities for creative beverages are limited only by your imagination. How about a Creamsicle (Orange and Cream Soda), or a Japanese Beetle (Ginger Ale and Lemon-Lime)?”

    Because SodaStream uses water straight from the tap, the system makes traditional store-bought beverage bottles obsolete.

    You risk damaging your soda maker, not to mention making a big fizzy mess. lol
