We drink a lot of soda in my house. With soda prices going up all the time, this habit gets expensive. It also results in a ton of returnables. A few months ago, we decided to give the SodaStream Fountain Jet a try. I’d seen these machines around and wondered about them, but was afraid to invest in one. Finally, a friend purchased one and gave it rave reviews so I bit the bullet.
I wish we’d made the switch sooner.
The Fountain Jet is easy to use. It takes just a minute to get the soda ready and the flavor added. I have to admit, I get a bit of a kick out of carbonating the water. I love pressing buttons so making soda with a button press appeals to me.
Not only is there a financial benefit, there is also an environmental one as well. The CO2 cylinders are fully recyclable and affordable. Exchange cylinders are less expensive than new cylinders as an added incentive to recycle the empties. The plastic bottles are re-usable so we don’t have to make an extra effort to recycle empty cans and bottles.
We’ve tried about a dozen different syrup flavors. Some taste more like the national brands than others, but we’ve enjoyed most of the flavors we’ve tried. My personal favorite is the Diet Pink Grapefruit.
