    Anyone seen this NEW item they are selling on Tv now??
    I believe it is called the Soda Stream.
    A contraption that looks like a coffee maker, only it turns ordinary tap water..into soda!
    Yeah.....rather hard to believe........it's a machine, and you have several "flavors" to choose from, and each small bottle of your favorite flavor is supposed to make up to 32 2-liter bottles of your favorite soda pop!
    The people in the infomercial tried it, and I heard some say "It tastes just like Sprite".....or "It tastes just like Coke".
    My problem would be, Coke tastes nothing like Pepsi.......so they probably do not have a Pepsi variation....only a Coke one.
    It has the carbonation....the fizz looks as tho it's there.....I just wonder how the stuff tastes. People were talking about how much money they'd save......but I dunno.......I don't see how it can come close to my great tasting Pepsi....I think I'll stick with the way I buy my soda now~

    I've had one for a couple years now.

    It works well but the refill CO2 cartridges are expensive.

    Oh wow.....well it's nice to know someone does have one and that it works well!
    But that sucks that a piece you need is so expensive....there is always a catch *sigh*

    Probably better off buying soda water and adding the flavor you like.

    or, skip the liver killing, teeth eating chemicals and have some fruit juice with it.

    What's gullible about not buying soda or sparkling water at a store?

    The unit was not very expensive and in the 2 years I've had it I have not had one problem with it.

    It makes a good addition to my home bar as I don't have to stock bottles of tonic or other mixers. I just make them when I need them but then again you probably think having a home bar with a couple taps and a supply of fresh kegs of home brew is gullible as well.

    I don't drink soda like colas or that other diet crap that's full of aspartame and other nasty chemicals.

    I do however like a sparkling water with a few drops of fresh citrus juice. And I know that the stuff I make is cheaper than a Perrier
