Home Soda Maker Review and Giveaway

Have you heard of the Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker from Soda Stream?

It helps reduce the amount of waste generated from consuming soda, because instead of buying disposable 3-liter bottles or canned soda, you can continually re-use the same 2 Soda Stream containers for your soda needs.

You save money making your own soda at home, and, even better, this soda mix contains less sugar than pre-made sodas.



The Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker uses regular water mixed with the Soda Stream flavoring of your choice to make your ideal drink.

I got the chance to review the Penguin Soda Maker, the classy version that uses glass bottles.

Sorry for the background noise, my niece was begging for jelly beans that she is forbidden to eat by my sister-in-law, who wasn't present.


1) Enter to win your very own Fountain Jet soda lover’s start-up kit which includes a Fountain Jet home soda maker, CO2 to make over 100 liters of soda, a variety sample pack of sodamix and MyWater trial-sized flavors, and 3 full-sized flavors of the winner’s choice. The retail value of this prize is $99.99!


1.) For a chance to win, visit the site and tell me your favorite
sodamix flavor and what excites you about making soda at home!

1 winner will be chosen by random number generator.

This giveaway is open to those with a continental US mailing address. No PO Boxes.

2.) Email subscribers get an extra entry for as long as their subscription is active.

Already a subscriber? Leave me a separate comment on this post to let me know you’re interested in this giveaway.

4.) Blog about this giveaway, including a link to this post. Leave me a comment with the link so I can check your post!

This contest will close on March 2, 2010, at midnight CST.

Winners will be notified by email and have 72 hours to respond.

SodaStream provided a review unit and is providing the prize for this giveaway!

gwendolyn/jaclin said...

Honestly, the most exciting aspect is the fantasy of being more self reliant! Of course, relying on the flavoring packets and co2 defeats this...Anyhow, cutting back on 1. driving to get the soda, 2. buying soda with excessive packaging, and 3. the cost of soda are all exciting, plus this just looks like fun! Diet tonic would be the flavor for me.

singermagic1 said...

Love the diet pink grapefruit. I like the idea that you can control the amount of carbonation and that you can revive a soda that is going flat

And reposting, because on reading the rules, I realized that I forgot a part of the mandatory entry! Missed it completely. Whoops. I wanted to include it with my tweet so it wouldn't be like...a separate entry or anything.

It would excite me to make soda at home because...well, isn't that just an incredibly neat thing? Plus, it's better for the earth, and would be fun, and allows more Diet flavors for my dad (hard to find on sale).

Hope my entries still count. :-)
