SodaStream user review
Dang, do these people ship fast - every order I've placed has arrived within 48-72 hours. Nice. Anyhow, most of these flavorings make for PERFECT SodaStream replacements with a simple recipe: using the old 50-serving bottle as a basis, just add 2oz. concentrate (half a sampler bottle), 1.5-tsp Sucralose powder, fill with a few cups of water, cap, shake, serve at the same ratio as SodaStream flavors. Simple, easy, zero-calorie, tasty, and cheap!
That said, certain flavors just work better than others, with a few I wouldn't recommend...
THE GOOD: Cola, Vanilla Cola, Root Beer, Sarsaparilla, Banana, Grape, Lemon Drop. My favorites, by far, are Cherry Cola and Dr. Rio, both outstanding flavors!
THE DECENT: Green Apple, Caramel, and Butterscotch make okay sodas, but are better mixed with colas, sarsaparilla, or root beer for accent. And Cream Soda just wasn't right, but indeed it was at least passable.
THE BAD: Chocolate Mint is so overpowering - tasty at first, but gets overpowering fast with a lingerig aftertaste. Nasty on its own, but palatable when you cut it with Dr. Rio. And Mountain Mist just doesn't taste anything like Mt. Dew; smells like it, but even after doubling the flavor-to-water ratio, I just can't save it. Meh, never cared much for Mt. Dew anyhow.
Overall, I'm still enjoying the journey, exploring different flavors and how they work as sodas, and am enjoying the journey. Well done, Prairie Moon!
