Sodastream Review

In the house of The Greer, we punish our bodies with caffeine non-stop. Brent is the biggest coke drinker in the house. Literally we can go through a 12 pack in two days when he is home. Let’s real quick do the cost of what we would spend monthly on cokes in The Greer 5 home.

At Fry’s Food they normally run about 2 12 Packs for $9.00. Say we go through 14, 12 packs a week. This is a rough estimate with Brent being home and me over drinking cokes. That’s roughly what — $63.00 a week. Monthly that is — $252.00. Doing the math now makes me panic. That is a lot of money thrown away on cokes. A lot.

Let me introduce you to the alternative.

When I first opened it I was so excited that I had to slow down and read the directions. But if you aren’t overly excited you won’t have a problem setting up the machine and in seconds you’ll be ready to make your own soda. I’ve tried every single flavor they sent and I’m hooked. Honestly, I don’t see much of a difference in the taste of my home made coke compared to a coke bought in the store. And it’s obviously $252 cheaper a month this way. HUGE plus. I worried about the cleanliness of it but we’ve let the bottles sit in look warm water overnight, rinsed again the next day and voila back to making soda. This has got to be on EVERYONE’S list this Holiday Season!!!
