UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Thank you to everyone who entered! Even if you didn’t win this one, you’ll still be a winner if you go buy your own SodaStream from Amazon.
Of all the kitchen products I’ve mentioned on Eating Rules, few have garnered as much interest and excitement as the SodaStream Home Carbonator. With good reason, too: It’s awesome!
We bought one about a year ago, and have been using it consistently ever since (and I certainly can’t say that about many other gadgets in my kitchen). I wrote a positive review after the first month, and since then only a couple things have changed for me.
First, since October: Unprocessed, I haven’t had a Coke Zero, Diet Coke, or any other mainstream soda. Not one!
Second, we stopped using the SodaMix flavors once we realized they all had artificial sweeteners. I haven’t yet tried the unsweetened “MyFlavor Essences” unsweetened flavorings — but the SodaStream folks have a few samples en route to me, and I’m looking forward to giving them a whirl.
Third, I’ve found that I don’t need as much “flavor” in my beverages as I used to in order to be satisfied with my beverage. A dash of bitters (I like Fee Brothers — it’s very cinnamony!) or maybe some lemon and lime wedges, and I’m a happy camper. (Here are a few more ideas.)
What’s that, you say? You want a SodaStream too? Hey, well guess what? You’re in luck!
SodaStream has generously offered to give one lucky Eating Rules reader a SodaStream Fountain Jet Seltzer Starter Kit!
The kit will include one Fountain Jet Carbonator (in your choice of color: Black/Silver, White, or Red Silver), a CO2 tank that makes over 100 liters of seltzer (refills are just $15), and one reusable carbonating bottle. They’ll also include samples of the unsweetened MyWater Flavor Essences, so you can get started right away with your healthier homemade soda. The total retail value is over $100!
Entering is easy. Here’s what you need to do:

Thank you to Jill Dreisilker from SS|PR, SodaStream, and everyone who enters!
Full disclosure: Other than the free MyWater Samples they’re sending me, I am receiving no compensation for this giveaway. It’s just something I wanted to do because I knew you would appreciate it.
