SodaStream Sparkling Summer House Party

Being a member of House Party definitely has its perks.  Like, receiving a SodaStream Party Pack in the mail just days after Hubs said he'd like to buy one for our family!!

SodaStream Party

In exchange for hosting a party and telling our friends and family about SodaStream we received:
  • (1) SodaStream® Source starter kit (Black) with 6 miniflavors
  • (1) Flavor variety pack
  • (1) Country Time® Lemonade (full size flavor)
  • (1) Crystal Light® Raspberry Lemonade (full size flavor)
  • (1) Kool-Aid® Tropical Punch (full size flavor)
  • (2) 1-liter bottles
  • (1) Sidewalk chalk
  • (1) Water balloon kit
  • (1) Popsicle tray
  • (1) Beach ball
House Party also sent Sun Visors and $20 Rebate Forms for each of my guests.

I'm a huge fan of soda, particularly Diet Coke and Dr Pepper.  Those two are my absolute favorites!  Because I don't tend to stray from those flavors {or brands} I was skeptical of the SodaStream at first.  The thought of turning normal, everyday WATER into soda seemed a little strange.  But, after making our first liter of soda I was sold.  The SodaStream is so much FUN! And YUMMY!

At our party we tried Root Beer, Lemon-Lime, Sparkling Lemonade, Sparkling Fruit Punch flavored Kool-Aid, Cola, Orange soda...and a few others.  My favorite was the Root beer!  Orange Soda and Sparkling Lemonade were my kids favorites.

SodaStream Party

I had a few people ask me, "is soda made from the SodaStream cheaper than buying 12-packs of soda from the store?"  My answer was always, I don't think it's cheaper as much as it is better for our environment and it saves time and space in your kitchen pantry.  The cost of owning a SodaStream and buying soda from the store is pretty comparable.

What's more?  You can use your SodaStream to make Sparkling H2O!  I've recently become a fan of putting sliced cucumbers or strawberries in my ice water preferably drank from a mason jar with a CUPPOW}.  Now that I own a SodaStream I will be adding sliced cucumbers or strawberries to my SPARKLING H2O!  Yep!  Genius, I know.

Do you own a SodaStream?  Do you LOVE it?  What is your favorite soda or sparkling beverage to make?
