When the fabulous people from SodaStream sent me their press release for their new campaign a few weeks ago I was transported back to my early teens when my mom used to take regular tap water and transform it into delicious carbonated drinks in a matter of seconds. Our old machine was a dull and boring brown and it was nice to see that the new packaging is modern, sleek and quite fresh looking.
They offered to send me a machine to test-drive and I jumped at the opportunity. I drink water by the liter daily but when I want something different, I always go for soda water. The one thing that bothers me about that is that soda water always comes in a plastic bottle which not very environmentally friendly. By choosing the SodaStream drinks maker, you are choosing an earth friendly solution that reduces pollution and bottle transportation, which results in fewer bottles to throw away or recycle. Take a look below, it’s quite shocking just how damaging plastic bottles are to the environment. (click on the picture to enlarge)
But above and beyond all that, I am the type of person who likes things to be easy and convenient. I don’t want to have to make soda water that takes much longer than it does to open a bought bottle of soda water, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the SodaStream literally only takes a few seconds to turn regular water into soda water. The machine is very user-friendly and doesn’t take up any precious counter space. It’s streamline, fresh design will look beautiful in any kitchen.
SodaStream has launched two unique products for Summer. The first is the Summer Gift pack, which offers consumers fantastic value at only R599, as you receive a set of taster-sized syrups and a free Jet machine. The pack includes:
- taster packs with 6 syrups
- 2 gas cylinders
- 4 1L bottles
- A free Jet machine
The second pack on shelves is the Jet Value pack, which is aimed at anyone who doesn’t have a machine as well as those who have an older version of Sodastream at home and would like an upgrade. Customers can also buy a spare cylinder pack, which will be sold alongside the machine. This offers great value, as it is more cost-effective than the standard start-up pack, and each consumer gets a free bottle with the extra cylinder pack. The price of the Jet Value pack is R199 and the price of the cylinder pack is also R199.
