I received a "Soda Stream" machine for Christmas, and it was the best gift EVER. It allow me to make my own sparkling water - with or with out natural flavorings. Before I received it, I spent tons of money on La Croix and other commercial soda waters. My results from the machine taste better, cost less, and doesn't require transporting/recycling of tons of bottles. I also have soda pop mixes, which are fun for parties. It's definitely improved my water consumption!
Using a Soda Stream home water carbonator helped me to abandon soda entirely and increase my water intake. 91
I finally broke down and purchased a Soda Stream home carbonator after hearing the Nutrition Diva (podcast) rave about it. It changed my life. It is the one appliance that I will throw in the back of my car on a road trip to bring with me so I can keep drinking water. It carbonates home tap or filtered water. You can add syrups (reg or diet) or flavor essences to your own water
At first I bought flavored diet gingerale or grapefruit juice. Then I graduated to flavor essences, then found I preferred plain carbonated water. After my lap-band surgery, I went back to the diet syrups (they make a mean peach iced tea) without carbonating the water. It's awesome! 194
