I have to admit that I’m a bit of a soda water addict so you can only imagine how excited I was when I attended the Canadian launch party for SodaStream’s new Kraft flavours last week.

At the launch party

Earlier this year, the beverage carbonation system maker, SodaStream Canada (@SodaStream_ca) partnered up with Kraft Canada to produce flavours for use in its soda makers. The new flavours included ones from Kraft’s Crystal Light line (lemonade, raspberry lemonade and fruit punch), Country Time lemonade and Kool-Aid (cherry, grape and tropical punch).

Don’t think you’re too old for Kool-Aid either…during the launch party, we were served variations of grown-up drinks like grape Kool-Aid with gin.

If you’ve never heard of SodaStream before, it’s a machine that turns regular tap water into soda water (aka fizzy water) in a matter of seconds. At the end of the party, we were all given a machine and after trying it out a few times, I couldn’t be happier!

The machine we received was the “Source” starter kit which included one carbonating bottle, one CO2 cylinder and a 9 portion pack of sample flavours.

First of all, I have to say that I’m thoroughly impressed by its chic design. It’s definitely one of those appliances that you don’t mind having on your counter. It’s also quite space efficient which is an important attribute for a condo-dweller like myself with limited counter space. Another fantastic attribute about this machine is how energy efficient it is – no batteries or electricity required! It’s all powered by the CO2 carbonator which is good for about 60L of water.

SodaStream Machines

Immediately after getting home from the launch party, I took my SodaStream for a test run with some Country Time lemonade syrup. The machine is easy to assemble and before we knew it, we had a bottle of fizzy water… all with the press of a button!

While you can’t carbonate anything with the machine that isn’t water, you can add the water to anything to give it a little bit of oomph. There are an extensive number of SodaStream flavours including a variety of colas, teas, fruit mixers and diet flavours. So, the possibilities are endless!

In addition to the Country Time lemonade flavour I tried, I also made a bottle of cherry cola and was impressed by how close it tasted to something store-bought. I was a little worried at first that the carbonation from the machine wouldn’t be very strong but you can actually choose how fizzy you want your water and adjust it to your liking.

Needless to say, I’m quite pleased with my new SodaStream. If it’s sitting on my precious counter space, you know it’s good.

*Note: The SodaStream was given to me for free but the opinions in the post are my own*
