338316338316B002T0GXNCA1BZ9JH2MCH7WXpluvmantelo3511322611200False advertising?I chose the diet soda. Notice that the total amount of the product is not written. I was perplexed at first, but then discerned that the product image clearly says 750ml. So at $8.39 it seemed to be a decent price. However what I received was a 500ml bottle. Not worth the hassle of returning for a couple of bucks, but an annoyance none the less. So beware when you purchase. I suggest you assume that you will receive a 500ml bottle.
338317338317B002T0GXNCA1UROQBKMLU9Q3E.M.3531291334400Price is 2.6 times as high as sodastream directI am in agreement with several of the users. I can buy any of these flavors for 4.99 online, at the manufactures website. Why would I pay 8.99 to 13.99 for the same. This is nothing but a customer advisory. Buy the syrups direct and save a bundle. As for the product, its a great product. Spending 99.00 on the machine means I have to drink a LOT of soda to equal 99.00 of sodas but it is more fun and a lot less waste.
338318338318B002T0GXNCA3V4JOO0CG06DOAnnonymous "Globe Trotter"3551263859200Tastes like SpriteThe packaging could be better, i find it a bit messy. The bottle cap is the measuring device, kind of like a laundry detergent cap.

Flavor is pretty good, tastes like sprite.
338319338319B002T0GXNCA2XUR31NIZFYIKMichael1241325980800Tastes like Redbull, doesn't look so much like Redbull and smells a little vitaminyFirst thing, this does give you energy just like an energy drink. It also tastes very similar to Redbull. When I burp, it has the similar energy drink belch smell that energy drinks have for some reason. The color is not quite the same as Redbull.

But having said all that I still find this to be an excellent value when you compare the prices of Redbull vs this mixture. At the store, Redbulls are $1.99 where as this one costs maybe $0.40 after all is said and done (cost of carbonation, syrup, shipping charged on carbonation, etc). I made that number up in my head though, did not use a calculator or even really think mathmatically about it so it is pretty much a made up cost I pulled out of the air and doesn't represent anything truthfully.

Anyhow, I know it is a much cheaper solution, I enjoy it and am drinking some now. Meow.
338320338320B002T0GXNCA1DKG4P9PVO32UOneEducator1241319241600I love it except for...This is a great product that I enjoy daily because I can adjust the fizz as well as the strength of the taste. I have my own formula for preparing this drink to meet my personal desire and I have no problem with the artificial sweetner. The only problem here is the value. Amazon sells it for more than Kohl's and Kohl's sells it for more than Bed Bath and Beyond. I look forward to Amazon having a more competitive price so I can "load-up" in the near future (hint-hint). Either way, I like the diet Lemon-Lime Soda mix better than diet 7up. 'Nuff said?
338321338321B002T0GXNCARUPTZMAN8CXJR. Taylor1251315785600Great substitute for named brandsTired of carrying cases of soda around? This is a great substitute and easier on the back. When you follow the directions on how to make up a batch it was a great find. I found trying to make a calorie comparison with canned cola's more difficult than it needed to be. They should have provided calorie information on a 12 oz. basis to match the info on a can of cola.
338322338322B002T0GXNCA2JLHQKYJYH4LLKen1241304985600Good Product misleading ad...Thought I was saving time by buying online. The image is of a larger bottle but in the description it is for the smaller bottler. The price was higher for the big bottle than I had previously paid at BJ's who had sold but was out last time I went to buy it there. Buyer beware these come in several sizes. They are becoming more available so I will buy locally from now on...
338323338323B002T0GXNCA2BGW2Y3LVAJHWShannon R Dement1241297728000Flavors from home and childhoodThe sodastream has been a real help to my family we are currently serving overseas and while there is an abundance of coke here the other flavors of soda are shall we say lacking! Some are so bitter that they are not palatable to my family. Rootbeer is a favorite and the sodastream has it nearly perfect to the rootbeer my dad made when I was young! I think that a touch more syrup is necessary to reach the true rootbeer flavor so it gets one less use for my family than the bottle says and I think there is an underlying mint flavor that is not overwhelming or unwanted but a bit noticeable to me. I did not give it 4 stars because the items arrived dented and not packed as well as I would have liked to make the journey overseas not punctured but close. It was however shipped quickly and without delay. I have not tried the diet in any flavor other than cola and with the significantly lower sugar count in the regular probably wont but wouldnt mind hearin how they are! Thanks for shipping to us folks overseas since the sodastream site will not and where they have international sites they will only ship the flavor varieties for each country! That doesnt help much for me!
338324338324B002T0GXNCA3TBOVKB3GM674L. Barrett "Traveling Lady"1251293494400ExcellentThe machine was delivered promptly. We opened it at Christmas and my husband is having a good time making soda for both of us. I am very pleased with the purchase.
338325338325B002T0GXNCAZV26LP92E6WUM. Hammond "ColemanFlGuy"1251288483200Diet Cola SyrupGood stuff. I wish they would run a special on it though. I liked it. it is all i can find. locally i cannot find any cola syrup. but it tastes pretty good to me. i always wait until the price is right then i grab a few. i enjoy drinking it.
338326338326B008EON66EA2F0KIA4NMIZHQPeter Tsang0041347926400Jasmine Sambac "Belle of India "I ordered Jasmine Sambac "Belle of India" from Thai Greenhouse on September 14, 2012 and it arrived 4 days later on September 18.

The jasmine arrived in good condition, with the soil and rootball bound in plastic wrap and the leaves wrapped in newspaper, along with foam peanuts.

The receipt indicates that I am to get a plant of blooming age, at 6"-8" tall.

My plant is actually about 14" tall. It has one woody stem with a few branches, holding about 36 leaves and showing new growth, but no flower buds. It is a fine and healthy plant.

~~~

As of this writing in September of 2012, Hirt's Gardens also offers the same plant at about the same price. However, Hirt's "Belle of India" is larger and has flowers. The one I received from Hirt's is a "full" plant, with many more leaves and stems. Plus, it has 13 buds or little white scented flowers. It comes in a 6" plastic container. So Hirt's has "more plant" for about the same price. For more details, please see "Arabian Tea Jasmine Plant - Belle of India - Sambac - 6" Pot" from Hirt's Gardens.

~~~

Here are directions which I pulled from the internet.

1. Jasmines flower on new wood so prune to encourage new growth.
2. Minimum temperature for "Belle of India" is 60 degrees F.
3. Loves warm temperatures and needs full sun (not partial) for flowering.
4. Fertilize lightly for more flowers. Do not over fertilize.
338327338327B001M22TA4A35V32HZEGZH04W. Easley "Opa"4541246320000Healthy Peanut ButterI must limit sugars in my diet and need to have regular protein snacks.
This Smart Balance peanut butter fills the requirements. This product is "natural" in that it is mostly peanuts with few additives. Some salt is added, mostly for taste.

When I examine the ingredients on a typical jar of peanut butter I see extra fat and unhealthy oils have been added. But the Smart Balance Natural is made without most of the extra ingredients. This is the one for me. The Taste is good. The Nutrition is excellent.

I recommend this product.
338328338328B001M22TA4AWS0KJPOS48MJD. Schmetterer1141292889600Good Peanut Butter - Not as PicturedI like this peanut butter... its not the jar pictured, I received a 6 pack of the Rich Roast - which is what I really wanted anyway but we can't find this brand in the store.

And FWIW - there is only 6 months on the 'best if used by' date. Not that I am too concerned. 4 stars only because the picture is wrong.
338329338329B001M22TA4AKZ0BCILJ71OTMark Hennicke5751251763200the top choice in our homeWe've tried so many different brands of peanut butter in our home in recent years, from store & national brands to all of the natural/organic varieties available these days, but we've settled on our top choice: Smart Balance Omega Natural Peanut Butter, Creamy, 16-Ounce Jar (Pack of 6). It has a very hearty peanut flavor & contains no trans-fats, hydrogenated oils or refined sugar ( it is very lightly sweetened with a bit of molasses.) It is low in impact carbs and even has a bit of dietary fiber for good measure. Another great nutritional bonus is the fact this peanut butter has 1000mg of Omega-3 fatty acids per serving, making Smart Balance Omega Natural Peanut Butter, Creamy, 16-Ounce Jar (Pack of 6) a great source of one of the good fats essential to optimal health. For all the great taste & nutrtional value, you couldn't make a better choice than Smart Balance Omega Natural Peanut Butter. Defintely worth a try!
338330338330B001M22TA4A2CC5Q0XT1I6KZJoe Skrote "Joe Skrote"4641262649600Good, but no cure for clogged arteriesI bought a case when the price was about $18; the price I see as I write this review ($49.95) is way too high. This is basically good peanut butter with some healthy qualities. While it doesn't contain artificially hyrdogenated oils or trans fats it does contain palm oil, a highly saturated natural fat which keeps it from separating at room temperature. It's also blended with flaxseed oil, which is high in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids but also contains a significant portion of the less desirable omega-6's. Smart Balance is better than the big commercial brands with hyrdogenated oils, but peanut butter is a high-fat food however you spread it, and should be eaten with that in mind. If you can't live without peanut butter and don't like to stir up jars of the natural kind, this is a good choice (when the price is reasonable).
338331338331B001M22TA4A1TCO82PH0ZZCZGunner0051320537600A life saver while deployedGreat tasting product from Smart Balance. I eat it regularly along with alomonds purchased from Amazon. This is a great source of essential fatty acids without the hydrogenated oil. Some minor stirring is required as is the case with all-natural nut butters. Fast shipping, even to an FPO/AP address. I will purchase more, I'm sure.
338332338332B001M22TA4A27DYAY3FUWIZ8J. Kendall0031318896000Rich Roast insteadCould be it was just a shipping mistake, but the stuff I got is labeled as Smart Balance All Natural Rich Roast -- and has basically the same sugar content as any normal major brand of peanut butter. Sure, the sugar comes from evaporated cane juice instead of good old-fashioned sugar, but I'm not entirely convinced snooty sugar will somehow be more friendly to my system than nasty-old purified sucrose.

I must admit, as well, to being continually frustrated at the lack of a sugar-free brand. I remember, briefly, when one of the major labels put out a sugar-free peanut butter sweetened with splenda, or some other sweetener, but in spite of the fact that there are eleven gazillion different flavors & styles of peanut butter on the shelves, that one vanished almost instantly. I don't know if the health crowd howled because they seem to hate artificial sweeteners almost as much as sugar, but I really wish someone would make a peanut butter that ditched sugar for a non-nutritive sweetener. And it seems odd that nobody is interested in filling that niche.

I was going to give one star, but since I know this may have simply been a shipping error, I bumped it up to three. Part of that low rating is that, in spite of having the same sugar levels as regular peanut butter, and added oil, this smart balance peanut butter I received (the rich roast) is kinda, well, awful. It tastes burnt, not rich, and isn't anywhere near as tasty as your major label brands.
338333338333B001M22TA4A3BF6SQUIY6BNIJohn F. Phillips "Dad, Grandad, coach, swimme...0051318550400this is my favorite peanut butter in jarFor the most part I like just plain peanut butter with nothing else: peanuts and there are some good ones out there, like Crazy Richards and SMuckers. the challenge is the oil separates and you have to keep it in the fridge. this is a good comprise i can leave in shelf and has few add ins. Like it, used it to train for the marine corps marathon
338334338334B001M22TA4A1TF8WMWWKP2Z6Julia Wolfe0051287964800YummyThis is my favorite peanut butter. I love the nutrition, but the flavor is really good too. It never separates. Chunky is fabulous. I actually went to 4 different stores over 3 days to get my jar of Smart Blend Peanut Butter.
338335338335B001M22TA4AIULJ4357GQOEMr. H0521301270400Great peanut butter if you like fish butter taste.My toast ended up tasting like cod liver oil and jelly and not peanut butter and jelly. I bought the Smart Balance stuff because it was on sale and was quite disappointed -- it's like eating fermented kelp boiled in fish oil and topped with kipper snacks. Neither my wife or my son could stomach it. The added Omega bits destroy the flavor.

If you want peanut butter, get peanut butter. If you want omega 3, get flax or fish oil. This product is a fail.
338336338336B000S81E2CAJ0IUQMY2JFK7PDS2211217808000Mediocre at best...Unfortunately, in my area the local 7-11's only carry David's brand sunflower seeds. I've tried almost all flavors and they are all TERRIBLE because David's uses substandard seeds. This "regular" flavor is VERY salty. Try Spitz or Art's for best quality!
338337338337B000S81E2CA7JGEKN140F4SKeith "kc31824"1151217376000A healthy alternative to snackingThese are great. Took a couple times to get used to how to manage a wad of them in my cheek, but now that I have, they've been a great healthy addition to my eating habits. When I'm working late and would usually want an unneeded snack, having some sunflower seeds instead gives me something to do without going for an unhealthy high calorie bag of chips.
338338338338B000S81E2CANLYQVAI7TKULDavid A. Caplan "dave659"0021245456000Not What They Used To BeDavid used to make the best sunflower seeds, but after being bought out by a conglomerate or two (now owned by ConAgra) they are now mediocre at best. I keep hoping to try the Jumbo variety, thinking they might be better, but they don't seem to be available. The "Original Flavor" is now not as nutty and fresh as in the past, and the seeds seem smaller. I wish ConAgra would take a cue from Pepsi and make a "Throwback" variety that would be the real "Original Flavor."
338339338339B000S81E2CA3L2HATRKKXVHSScotty M. "Little Nose"0051223424000A great healthy snack for the familySunflower seeds are a great snack from ages 6 and up. I wouldn't let any child under the age of six to eat sunflower seeds because there is a threat of choking if little kids get these in their mouths. Sunflower seeds are a great healthy snack to snack on from time to time. There are many flavors that David has came out with over the past years. Some of them are Barbeque, Ranch, Nacho Cheese, Jalepino, and their most recent Dill Pickle. Many people that I know love the barbeque flavor but my favorite flavors are original and ranch. They are great to snack on at any sporting event or outside attraction. A very great snack to munch on, I really love sunflower seeds. I almost eat them daily.

Fun Fact: I learned in human anatomy class that sunflower seeds clean out your internal systems such as your stomach and intestines so thats always a good thing. Just a fun fact, haha.

You can find sunflower seeds at any grocery store, gas station, or at any baseball parks. A very good and healthy snack.
338340338340B000H27NC4AXVYH85O4LZ93flasawdust0051281312000great stuffgreat stuff we buy it & eat it all the time.
Of course, I am biased, since Mam Papaul (Mamom) was my grandmother.
338311338311B002T0GXNCA1YGCRGBPN12TRSara "SaraMac"0021330819200Yuck!I love the concept of the Sodastream, but the Cola flavor could be better, even more so when they try to compare it to Pepsi. I know with non-brands there will always be a difference, but this flavor is not good. Not horrible, but not something I will drink.
338312338312B002T0GXNCA313U53M5YUU3EM. Rossman0041330819200Great for floats, but not as good as A&WWe love our SodaStream and have found several of the mixes we like including the Root Beer. It is not as good as A&W root beer but it makes a great root beer float. It does not taste overly sweet, nor does it leave you with a chemical after taste. Plus it is nice that you can control how much syrup you add to play with the flavor a bit. I would recommend at least trying this syrup and definately use it for a root beer float!
338313338313B002T0GXNCA3LLWPY4AGBNL6Alliy Machit0051329609600I love itI bought the soda maker and the energy mix it's just like red bull but a little sweeter it saved me Money instead of buying red bull every day I just made it. it was great.
338314338314B002T0GXNCA12VMDYO7L1HURD. K. Peel "jstkdn"0051326585600Diet Pink Grapefruit Sodamix SyrupVery, very good. Refreshing and thirst quenching. I Love It. If you like Grapefruit, you'll like this drink. Just tried it in my SodaStream and it was delicious. When you don't want sweet and you want refreshed, this is the way to go.
338315338315B002T0GXNCA13C11C228TN5OGoldwing0031285545600With a little doctoring, very goodThis is better than diet but falls short of brand name cola taste. I feel the cola flavor is a little "spicy" and not fruity enough. I tried a few mixin's and now I think it is great. If it came as good as I can mix it, I would give it five stars. If you decide to try this product, get some True Lemon or Lime, True Orange, stevia packets (with a high level, 90% or better, of steviosides for cleaner,sweeter flavor, and a bottle of cherry snow cone syrup if you like cherry cola. I use a half packet of lemon and Orange, 1 packet of stevia, and a short squirt of cherry per liter bottle. Now the flavor falls between generic and brand name. Cheaper than using cans, but not cheaper than using two liter bottles. The calorie count is about a third of normal cola. You have to be comfortable with Splenda and Ace-K as Soda Stream uses those to offset some of the sugar (not corn Syrup a plus). Thankfully no Nutrasweet/aspartame as I get terrible headaches from that.
