Sodastream Giveaway!

As you have heard, Favorite Things Friday will be postponed until mid September.  However, the most recent FTF linky will be running until then, so you can continue linking to that until the next one.

I thought, in the place of FTF this weekend I would set up a giveaway to run while I am vacationing!

I was so lucky to, about a month ago, receive my own Sodastream start-up kit to review.  I am a soda lover myself, so I was pretty excited about it.



When I got the package in the mail I opened it right away and couldn't wait to try it.  I was bad and didn't read the directions (like always) but it was really easy to use and I figured it out right away.  Besides it being so user-friendly, here are some other reasons I love it:

1. You don't have to lug heavy soda containers from the grocery store.
2. You also don't have to think ahead and refrigerate your soda hours before it's ready to drink.
3. The cost is slightly cheaper than if you were to buy your soda on sale, and much cheaper if you buy your soda full price.
4. There are SO many soda flavors and they are all yummy and refreshing!
5. Their regular sodas (not diet) have only about 30-40 calories per 8 oz. serving!
6. You can control how carbonated your sodas are.
7. The 1 liters are a great size for 1-2 days of use.
8. You can buy the flavors and get more carbon at local Sodastream/carbonator bottle vendors (there are actually quite a few and 2 that are about a mile from my house) if you don't want to order online.

There is only really one thing I would change about Sodastream and that is I would make the flavors more pourable (the caps are exactly like laundry detergent so they get a little messy.)

Sodastream has offered one of my lucky readers their own Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-up Kit! (approximately $100 retail value)  This includes the Fountain Jet, enough CO2 to make over 100 liters of soda, 2 reusable carbonating bottles, a sample pack of flavors, and 3 full-sized flavors of the winner's choice!





To enter you can do any of the following:

1. Follow me
2. Share what your favorite soda flavor is
3. Visit my photography blog
4. Become a facebook fan and/or blog follower of Jessica Hills Photography

Make sure you leave a comment for each thing you do!  Thanks and good luck!


***This giveaway is only open to U.S. shipping addresses.***

My favorite soda flavor is a toss up between Dr Pepper and Fresca. I've seen this do-hicky in stores, but have been afraid of it. I'd love to win one--I drink tons of soda!!! What a cool thing to have at a party! (I don't drink alcohol, okay maybe I should say don't usually drink alcohol, maybe an odd glass of wine....)

I'm a follower; one of my favorite flavors is cherry-cola and thanks for the opportunity to win!

Nancy said...

What an array of flavors and they are meant to be better than regular soda (amount of sugar, etc), sounds good to me. I'd have a hard time choosing 3 flavors as they all sound so yummy. Apart from cherry-cola, orange-mango sounds pretty good to me:)

Nancy said...

You are very talented! Some amazing photos on your photography blog - your daughter is gorgeous!
