Soda-Club Vlog

Today was just what the doctor ordered!! I really needed this Mental Health day to get me back on track and ready for the week. This mornings first piece of medicine was cleaning, I cleaned the entire house from head to toe. Then I had a light lunch, leftover grilled veggie sammie and some Food Should Taste Good chips.

Picture 293

Then I organized my entire week and enjoyed my new Rachel Ray Mag. I love this cover, it says FALL all over! 

Picture 291

Then the mail man came! YEAH! I love trying new products, I am not going to lie it is a nice perk of having this blog :). 

Picture 284

Soda-Club sent me one of their Genesis systems, Hubby is going to be so stoked!

Picture 285

Along with a lot of different flavored syrups to try out. I am not a soda drinker, but I love club soda!

Picture 287

The Diet Pink Grape Fruit sounds yummers! They do have some artificially flavoring in them :(.

Picture 290

Picture 289

Along with some of their my water flavor essences. You just add a few drops to your club soda and adds a little flavor.  These are 100 % natural :).

About The Soda-Club System

Making carbonated water and soft drinks is so simple. Turn tap water into sparkling water in 3 seconds! Enjoy the convenience of home soda and protect the environment. No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste with our delicious syrups. Add the flavor of your choice and make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With the latest designs it will also look great in your kitchen. So… do you still do bottles?”

Hubby and I decided to make a how-to video for you all this evening, excuse my sweatiness I just got done teaching kickboxing!

 

oops I got cut off…here’s how it tasted.


Hope you all enjoyed our video, have a great night!

Do you ever drink Soda Pop or Soda Water? Would you be interested in one of these machines?

I LOVED the video!! It was fun.

The machine sounds pretty cool! I bet I'd like it.

maria said...

That video was fun and the soda machine looks cool. If I was back in the U.S. and could find it for a good price I would consider buying it for sure!

I'm adding you to my blogroll because your blog is so fun and entertaining.

Matt said...

I don't drink soda. I gave it up a few years ago and haven't had one since. I stick with water, coffee, and beer :)

Lauren said...

You are too cute! I love all of your Vlogs!

I'm not a soda drinker but I do love seltzer flavored water. My favorite is the grapefruit falvor.

Hope you have a great first day of fall! :)

Mica said...

I might give this a try! I probably won't rush out and buy one, but I am intrigued...

Liz said...

Wow, the soda machine looks so neat!

I do drink soda, although I'm trying to limit my intake. How do you think the cost of the machine/syrups would way against buying a pack of sodas at the grocery store?

I loved the video. :)

angieinatlanta said...

I love that soda machine idea! I'm so addicted to Diet Coke and I really want to break my habit but I'm having the hardest time - it's my one vice!

I'm glad your mental health day went well; you deserved it, you busy girl!

Angie Eats Peace said...

That is interesting...seems easy enough, but, also like just another unnecessary appliance to take up space on the kitchen counter.

Leianna said...

That looks so awesome, I would love one of those machines!
Looks easy and thanks for the vlog!

brandi said...

I think that sodaclub machine is so cool! I'd love to have one to make my own - it would save so much money!

Runeatrepeat said...

I so want one of those machines! But, they are too pricey for me right now :(

RunToTheFinish said...

hmm I don't drink soda, so I just can't see really using this machine

Quinn said...

Those soda machines have been getting very popular in the blog world lately!

Your post reminded me, I need to renew my subscription to Rachael Ray - I've been missing her issues!

Jenny said...

Oh! I bought a penguin soda machine about a year ago and just love it! I'm not a big soda drinker, but I love sparkling water (san pel, la croix, etc) which is expensive and overflows my recycling bins with plastic, glass and cans. I redeemed some credit card points for a william sonoma gift card and used that to purchase my penguin, so it was "free". I've saved a ton of money and reduced waste and I now drink more water.

Shinobu said...

I want one more than anything but I'll never be able to afford it. :(

Lindsay said...

I love the video! I would love one of those machines. I hate lugging bottles and cans home from the grocery store!

Rachel said...

I seriously covet one of those machines! I can't afford it all in one go but I'm sure I spend as much on club soda and regular soda over the course of a year. I think it could help me get rid of my diet coke addiction!

Katie A. said...

I am a huge Diet Coke drinker! But more for the fizz than anything. I do drink tons of water, too! This looks interesting, I might have to really look into this. I recycle all my cans, but this seems so much more environmental in the long run! Thanks for the vlog! :)

Lisa said...

Fun video, but it was hard to hear you over the music. I'm weird... I don't like carbonated drinks so the machine isn't something I'm interested in. But it looks cool!

monicac2 said...

That looks delicious! About 5 years ago, I implemented a rule for myself of drinking nothing but water during the day. No juice, soda, nada, during daylight hours. When I get home from work, I'm allowed to have a soda (usually Sprite), and boy do I look forward to it! The soda machine looks interesting; I'll have to look into it!

Cara (Cara Craves...) said...

Oh my goodness, that's like the coolest invention ever!
Who ever thought it could be so easy?

Jamie said...

What a cool concept! The soda machine I mean! I don't drink soda but I drink carbonated flavored water quite a bit. It's nice to have something other than plain WATER all the time. I would love to get my hands on one of these babies!

Mandy said...

I would LOVE to try the my water Lemon Lime one!! It looks oh so delicious!!!

Sarah said...

I would love to try the cream soda flavor - this sounds like an awesome invention, especially for people like my hubby and I who don't drink soda normally...but like the occasional fizzy drink!

megzzwinsatlife said...

I would love to try the cream soda flavor.. I love soda.. I actually wish I didn't love soda haha.. But this would be a great alternative!

liveloveeatandplay said...

I would love to try the pink grapefruit for sure. I love pink grapefruit anything!

Mary said...

Anne said...

OH MY GOODNESS, i'm a HUGE soda water drinker! i hate buying bottle water, but i do buy 2 liters of soda water bc i love the bubble so so much:)

Pink Grapefruit would be where I would start. Then I'd make my way through any other citrus flavor.

Have a great weekend!

Emily said...

Looks like so much fun. I can imagine mixing some soda water with a little juice (maybe Pom?) for a yummy fizzy drink. I'd like to try the flavor essences as well.

foolsfitness said...

I'd love to make some and do old styles with labels that say something like "jones elixer of health tonic" like the old moxie stuff, but tasting more like ginger beer. Yes folks, step right up and be amazed at my snake oil right here that will cure any ill!

It looks pretty neat!

Foolsfitness, personally supporting the diet cream soda pop industry!- Alan

theskinnyplate said...

Lemon-lime, cus that is what I usually buy for my sparkling water too. I'm a simple girl.

I really want to try the Diet Ginger Ale one because I love ginger ale! I also know that one of my professors at school has one of these machines and she has used her water to help her lose her baby weight after her daughter was born! I'm intrigued and would love one of these!

Lisa Keppel said...

I would try the diet cola for sure!!!

maria said...

I'd love to try the cranberry raspberry for sure, but there's a lot of other flavors that sound yummy! I am not a huge soda person, but it would make me feel better when I drink it if I could make my own.

I don't drink pop but I think it would be fun to try and I'd love to give it as a gift. My mom just had knee surgery and she's always been a big ginger ale fan so I think she'd like that one best.

Sara Barnett said...

Unfortunately, I am a huge diet soda drinker... bad, bad I know. It's my vice- I have never been a coffee drinker and slowly I am trying to become a tea drinker. So, I guess any of the diet flavors would be fantastic to try.

Beck said...

OMG CREAM SODA! Love.LOVE!

Rio Runs said...

I have transitioned off soda, but love carbonated water and the ocassional ginger ale. So I'd like to try the ginger ale flavor. It would be great to have this around when someone in the house wants something bubbly but there's nothing in the house. Saves a trip to the store!
