SodaStream Fountain Jet Giveaway & Review


Jamie Gibson
is the winner of this giveaway!

Stay tuned. I'll be posting another giveaway VERY soon. Up for grabs will be 2 large boxes of Seventh Generation products!


The good folks over at SodaStream sent me one of their Fountain Jet machines to try and review for them.
I heard about these machines from a good friend of mine a while back and thought it would be a great item to have and let me tell you... I was right!

I received the Fountain Jet a little over a week ago and started using it immediately.

 What Came with the Unit

I was amazed at all that came with the unit: 
     1. The main unit
     2. One (1) 60 liter CO2 canister
     3. Seven (7) different flavor syrups
     4. Three (3) flavored water syrups
     5. Two (2) one-liter carbonation bottles


The flavors that came with my unit were:

Flavored Syrups
Diet Lemon-Lime
Lemon Iced Tea
Orange Mango
Diet Pink Grapefruit
Diet Root Beer
Diet Energy (Compare to Sugar Free Red Bull)

Flavored Water Syrups

The 7 flavors I received are just a few of the many, many flavors they offer on their website.

Do you like Mountain Dew? They've got a flavor for that!
Do you like Cream Soda? They've got that one too!
How about Cherry? They've got one of those!
And everyone likes Dr Pepper, right? Well lookie there... they've got a flavor to match that too!
Tonic, Ginger Ale, Grape Soda?? Yup, Yup, Yup!!!

All of the flavored cola syrups listed above are just wonderful! My absolute favorite out of the seven listed is (was) Diet Energy. It smells and tastes JUST LIKE Red Bull. I've used almost all of it and have already ordered another bottle. Yeah, its that good. :)

Using the Machine

Using it is SO easy. Just fill one of the carbonation bottles with cold water (tap, filtered, purified - doesn't matter) and press the button on top of the machine three times (or until you hear the 'buzz'). Wah-la! The water is now carbonated. After doing this, you simply choose which flavor you want, fill the lid of the syrup bottle to the line and pour it in the bottle you just carbonated. Put THAT bottle's lid on and gently give it a few turns to mix the syrup with the water.

Presto! You've just made your very own carbonated soft drink in less than 30 seconds. And you make a liter at a time - and for pennies! This machine makes your favorite drinks for a LOT less than buying them in a grocery store. And it uses NO batteries - NO electricity! No more packaging waste (ie. cans, cardboard, plastic). Eco-friendly and 99% flavor match. How can you go wrong!

Eco-Friendly, Eco-Responsible

The SodaStream is an eco-friendly alternative to purchasing the normal canned or bottled soft drinks you are used to. More info about the savings you can experience by using these items can be read on the SodaStream website.

I invite all of you to check out this company and this product. You truly will not be disappointed.

Thank you, SodaStream, for allowing me to review your product. Personally, I LOVE your product. I simply can not get enough of it. It is the only beverage(s) I've had since it arrived!
