SodaStream again! (Giveaway)

April 19, 2010

Happy Monday to you!

To celebrate Earth Day this Thursday and because you loved it so much the first time around, the sweet folks at SodaStream are letting us do another giveaway of their terrific home soda system.

So please take a seat and get comfy so you can fully appreciate its awesomeness.  It is AWESOME.


Meet the SodaStream:

It’s a home soda maker that will save you so much money, lugging, and trash.  And best part: no aspartame and no high fructose corn syrup!

You twist the CO2 Carbonator into the rear of the unit.

Then twist the plastic bottle you’ve filled with cold water into the front of the unit.

Then press the button on top of the machine and the CO2 shoots into the water bottle.  Sorry I cut off the button, it was tricky to take photos while I was pushing it, (and I was talking on the phone with my mom so I had to cradle the phone with my shoulder – multitasking).  You push the button 3 times.  I usually unscrew it and give it a quick taste to make sure it has enough “juice”.  If you were over and we were going to share, I would refrain from doing this, scout’s honor.

Then you pick your flavor, caffeine-free Diet Cola for me, and pour 1 cap full into the carbonated bottle.  One of these little bottles ($4.99) makes the equivalent of 33 cans of soda.  In addition to the expense, I’ve just saved several trips to the recycling center.

Voila!  A little drink treat for me!

Lots of fizz, just like a soda fountain should be.  I’m telling you dee-lish! – I can’t tell the difference.

These are just some of the many flavors offered.  You can see the full list here.

In the 2 months I’ve had the SodaStream, I haven’t bought a single bottle or can of soda for our home.  I think this is perfect, especially when you entertain and everyone can pick their own flavor.


You can win one SodaStream machine, one CO2 Canister, 2 soda bottles and 2 flavors just by leaving a comment by Friday, April 23rd and I’ll choose the winner using on Saturday, the 24th.  Because of the complexities of shipping the included CO2 Canister, this giveaway is only open to residents of the 48 continental states.

You can get an extra entry by emailing 5 of your friends about The Good Stuff Guide (or tweeting or leaving something about TGSG as your status update on Facebook).  As always, I trust ya!

Good luck!

You can also find more info (and to buy it) at

****UPDATE**** #31 Jennifer won the SodaStream.  Congrats!

    Sounds great. It will help us since recycling for us is a chore – no collection facilities in our condo – and this in “green” Colorado!

    I don’t know if I could give up real Coke, but my getting my husband hooked on the diet soda with the soda stream would be a huge savings!!

    This could help us save some cash on our diet Coke addiction. It looks healthier too. I like the idea of cutting down on packaging use.

    i would love this! We drink alot of soda at this house and it is very complicated for us to recycle without attracting ant or other pests so I would love this since it seems more earth friendly.


  26. Laura

      on April 21, 2010 10:52 am

    This would be a huge hit in our house! Also, I became a fan on FB:)


  27. Gina

    I don’t spend a lot on soda now, but I like the idea of keeping more out of the trash/recycling.

  33. Beverly

      on April 22, 2010 5:00 pm

    This looks really cool. We are sodaholics, so if we aren’t going to be healthy, at least we can be green!
