Our review of the Source Soda Stream starter kit we received:
I received the Source Starter Kit and love it so far! I received 10 full size soda syrup bottles, a 3 sample pack of the my water, and mini samples of other flavors of soda syrup. I highly recommend this system to anyone who loves a quick and easy way to make your own soda! It's fun and easy to make the sodas and tastes great too! I got this one to review and will be taking it to work to share with co-workers, because they really want to try it out too. My daughter was the first lucky one to try this system out with me. She wanted to try the Pink Lemonade flavor, so we set the Source system up, got the carbonator in place, and made the drink. She wasn't too fond of the flavor for some reason, probably due to the fact she has never had carbonated water like that before, but I love the flavor! It's always been a favorite drink of mine and this system makes it taste that much better. Some people may have differing opinions of the flavors, but I approve it 100%! I also love the Cola and Ginger Ale flavors.
What I received with my Source machine:
- White Source machine
- 1 Metal carbonating bottle with stainless steel base and cap
- Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60 L of soda
- Soda Mix variety 10 pack
- My Water samples
- Mini samples of different soda flavors
How to make your Soda Stream work:
Open the back of the Source machine and place the carbonator directly into the bottom to top and click it into place, and put the white back onto it. Fill the water bottle that was provided in this starter kit with cold water to the fill line and push it into place. To carbonate the water, all you have to do is push down on the smaller white piece of the machine which is directly above the water bottle. Once you push on it for about 2 - 10 seconds (however much you'd like it to be carbonated), slowly unscrew it and get a soda syrup ready. Once you've opened a syrup, fill it half way in the syrup cap and pour it into the water. After you do that, all you need to do is place the top of the bottle back onto the water bottle and shake it for a few seconds. Remove the cap, and enjoy your drink!
