300 Followers biotches!

Whatup friends?! So, lame as it is, I am super excited to have finally reached the 300 mark on followers! I mentioned that when I reached 300 followers, I would have a week of announcing giveaways!! YAY!!! I know you are really excited, so please save your applause.

Todays giveaway, is one that you most likely have seen being given away on tons of blogs!

SodaStream!

I really wanted to try it out for myself, so I entered the giveaway on one of my fav bloggers blog, Jennifer over at Life with the Lebedas! She finds the most awesome stuff to review and giveaway! I won a SodaStream System on her blog and had the most hilarious experience with it! First of all Soda Stream is a really cool product that turns ordinary tap water into soda!



I decided that since my kitchen is ridiculously small, I would spread out and assemble the Soda Stream in my living room on my large coffee table. <---first bad idea! I actually had no problems assembling the thing, its pretty easy. So, once everything was ready to go, I screwed the bottle of chilled water in and pumped the thingy 3 times! Fun! Then it makes this spaceship like sound when you go to remove the bottle, and unscrew it. Fancy! I received a full bottle of the Orange Mango, so I figured I would start with that flavor. The ONE instruction that I did not read was that after filling the cap with syrup, you are to pour the syrup SLOWLY into the carbonated water. HA! So, I am sitting on the floor indian style, and as my husband enters the living room I dump the contents into the bottle. Soon...and I do mean soon, after that the soda starts to rise, so I place my hands over the lid in hopes to prevent the explosion! Too late!! Its started squirting from under my hands and there was orange mango soda flying everywhere!! The couch, table, floor, and myself, were covered in sticky soda, and all I could do was laugh my ass off!! PBear shook his head and said "what the hell are you doing babe?" He has come to expect these sorts of shananigans from me.


Anyway, after that we poured ourselves some soda and loved it! My daughter and I made just about every flavor to sample! My husband and I are big sparkling water drinkers, so of course this is what we use it the most for. I did not like all the flavors. My favorites were Orange, Orange Mango, and the Mountain Mist (which tasted more to me like Sprite then the Lemon Lime.) My aunt who is a diabetic liked the Diet Petes Choice. SodaStream Summary Review: Pros: Inexpensive Reduces plastic waste No Lugging Bottles No Storing Bottles Eco-Friendly No batteries or electricity Reduces energy used to manufacture bottles and cans Reduces gas and pollution from shipping packaged beverages Eliminates pollution from batteries Cons: Load buzzing sound when carbonating water.

Mandatory: please visit the SodaStream and let me know the flavor your would like to try, that is not listed above. (2 entries)

  94. Your review cracks me up! My friend has a SodaStream and I never pay attention when I make it and always get soda everywhere!!!

    My favorite flavor that I've tried is the Orange Mango, too! I also like the Raspberry Cranberry. But of the flavors I've never tried I would love to try Cherry Cola!
