449971449971B002T0KDNIA1OZ9C4MV8IVINDouglas DO1151295654400My reviewOf the Sodastream syrups, this is my favorite. Unlike the other flavors, which are very often poor remakes of classic brands, the orange flavor is unique. It has qualities of Orange Crush and Sunkist, but adds an original flavor that only it has. Overall, it is a great flavor, and even pop snobs will likely enjoy it. If you can't live without the classics, any flavor (including Orange) is not worth buying though, so be cautious, and try buying one instead of a three pack the first time.
449972449972B002T0KDNIA1KYZSWTMMVRWXN.C. "Tiger82"3411326240000Regular Cola has Artificial SweetenerI bought the regular cola flavor to give it a try, but after tasting it, I realized that it had artificial sweetener. I didn't think to read the ingredients before buying, since it wasn't diet. Not sure why they did that, since the first ingredient is SUGAR. I can't give it a good rating, as I stay away from artificial sweeteners and I feel that they were a bit deceptive by not making the fact that it contains artificial sweeteners more noticeable. I don't drink cola every day (maybe once a week or less) and I feel that sugar is OK in moderation.
449973449973B002T0KDNIA234OTM2C37RTSjo3441304812800product makes good cola drinksI bought this to try and make the cola drink like Borders Book store sells and it is close. Maybe I just need more practice at making it.
449974449974B002T0KDNIA1RPVOVIXVQ2TUClarissia Bent "molly's mom"3441293321600Great product, terrible priceI have the SodaStream and love it. I am a diet soda drinker and love all the varieties of flavors my local retailer carries. My favorite is the pink grapefruit. I came on Amazon expecting to find a deal and was shocked at the price some people are selling the flavor syrup for. HIGHWAY ROBBERY! These can be purchased for $3.99 - $4.99 (Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohls)for single bottles . I thought maybe this was the price for a double pack, but doesn't appear to be. At this price, this machine would not be very cost effective now would it?
449975449975B002T0KDNIA247YCDARQ8YUZNibiru20125741312848000Ginger Ale Flavor is quite tasty!The other reviews are correct in the fact that the "suggested" retail price is $4.99 per bottle. Some sellers are ripping the consumers off by pricing them higher. As always... caveat emptor!

The Ginger Ale syrup is very good in my opinion. It is very close to Canada Dry's Ginger Ale in crispness and tartness.

I use the "three buzz" carbonation method and then fill the syrup cap to the line in the cap about a 1/2" from the top of the filler. This creates the perfect syrup to carbonation ratio and makes a very drinkable and tasty ginger ale!
449976449976B002T0KDNIA9TJFFBOJU0CXD. E. Harte "Avid listener/reader"5751280102400refreshing!This is a refreshing flavor - almost tastes like Squirt but with a ruby grapefruit zing to it. Even my kid loved it!
449977449977B002T0KDNIA2X3L31KCXBHCLWorking Mom "Working Mom"71011321401600Warning - Non-Diet Flavors contain SplendaWe love our Soda Stream and usually drink the bubbly water plain or make our own syrups (very easy to do), but I purchased the Root Beer flavor on a whim. We poured the recommended amount of syrup into the carbonated water and slurped. It was OK for a split-second, THEN came the after taste - YUCK!!!

If you are NOT of the persuasion that Splenda is natural and don't enjoy aftertaste and don't want to acquire a taste for fake sugar, then this product is NOT for you.

From now on, I'm not buying anything without reading the label first.
449978449978B002T0KDNIABZ04EVNDQVIJChristine McGavran71011287619200Bad tasteThis product is sweetened with Splenda, and tastes very artificial. Maybe if you like diet soda you will like this, but the 3 people that sampled it did not.
449979449979B002T0KDNIA5BQCMO9FBW0SA shopper91311305244800It has splenda in itI puchase regular soda because I am allergic to artificial sweeteners. Why is there artificial sweetener in a regular soda syrup?
449980449980B002T0KDNIA1QIHNZHUHQV08Susan Gardner Bowers "Susu"111611306800000NastyThe non-diet flavors all have Splenda. In addition to sweeteners. Tastes awful. If I wanted artificial sweeteners I would've bought the diet sodastream. Ick.
449981449981B002T0KDNIA2BBPGVRFYRBJPJ. Huda4621300924800I LOVE this product, but don't buy it here....I agree with all the reviews about the price. It's really ridiculous that the appeal of this machine for our family was the cost of soda vs. the cost of this stuff. It' is 1/3 the price per serving of store bought soda, 1/2 the caffeine, 1/3 the sugar and calories, but it still tastes amazing. And we don't have bags and bags of recycling, and we can make whatever soda we want when we want. At this price, it's basically just buying 3 cases of soda on sale... what's the point??? When you can order it online from ANYWHERE ELSE for half the price, this is just absurd. Please just search for it, you'll find a better price in about 10 seconds.
449982449982B002T0KDNIA1VPXODUN52EDQThe Comedian "The Comedian"4621277337600Strong taste of artificial sweetenerThough it isn't the "diet" version of Sodastream ginger ale, this concentrate still has a strong taste of artificial sweetener.

I was disappointed enough in the taste that after the first glass I threw out the remaining syrup.
449983449983B002T0KDNIA3F8AS5A9CTFMAmobe2331329782400don't find the cost savingsI'm not sure what most of you pay for your sodas, but here they run around 85 cents a liter plus deposit of .05. When one adds the $25 for 60 liters of carbonation 25/60 (.42/L) and $6 for 12 L of flavor (.50/L) one is losing money with the home carbonation system. I do like the idea of making my own products though.
449984449984B002T0KDNIA1TSJR1YF6ORC0V. R. Heck2351311552000Just Amazing!It's so much fun to make my own soda with as much fizz and syrup I prefer! Hope it might bring others as much joy.
449985449985B002T0KDNIA3TEJX0EVDQNK5Wookie2351299888000Bang for your energy drink $ is here!!!Energy drinks are considerably higher price than coke/pepsi etc. Your bang for your buck is here on a product that tastes very very much like Red Bull. Not as much sugar as real RB as well :) Love IT!
449986449986B002T0KDNIA1FZXKTN68KBCBC. Horton0031349481600AftertasteI bought the Sodastream after just looking at it for a while. Then, decided to try it as I remember drinking "fizzies" many years ago and was shooting for that effect. Sodastream does indeed add great fizz but beware the aftertaste. I tried the orange and thought, while I was drinking it, that it was terrific. But, then, for more than a day, I had an aftertaste like some of the diet drinks leave. Same with the Root Beer. And, even though the machine says add carbonation only to water and then add syrup, I decided to try adding carbonation to my own drinks, like Kool-Aid or Hawaiian Punch. Other than being careful with the carbonation and making sure to clean the CO2 port afterward, it works very well. However, even with my own drinks I still get the terrible aftertaste. That part is very disappointing. Not sure if that can even be removed. Is it the carbonation itself? Regular carbonated drinks do not have it.
449987449987B002T0KDNIA34J59UACBK61Dknife nut asher0051349222400no need to buy the kit buy the syrup insteadOkay I am a soda drinker in some cases 1 litter a day plus. Then sodastream came across my tv screen. I was like okay it sounds great.When I found this my local store and saw the price for the unit. I said wow that is a big jump $130 plus to just buy the unit then you gotta buy the charging cartridges "co2" and bottles then the syrup all told it was near 200 to get me started and ready to go. So I said to myself hey I can buy soda water in my store for 88 cents per 2 liters and the syrup makes 6 or so liters per bottle depending on how strong you want the taste I buy the energy mix 2 or 3 bottles at a time and it lasts me about a month I still buy other soda buy much less and no more paying 3 bucks a can for red bull,oh side note if you are into jager bombs and so are your party friends buy a bottle of this and some soda water bottle of jager and have fun in my opinion it tastes better than real red bull
449988449988B002T0KDNIA2IEJQ8754BMSIWolfQueen130041349222400Some flavors OK , some questionableIve heard many reviews about Sodastream: most bad, a few OK. I understand that Sodastream sodas cant taste exactly like regular soda so im not expecting them to taste exact. With that said Im pretty pleased with or am OK with most of the flavors that ive tried. Bellow are my reviews of a few.

Cola: 5/5 stars Doesnt taste exactly like Coke but is close. One of my favorites.

Orange: 5/5 stars If youve tried different brands of Orange soda you will notice that some taste better than others. This tastes like cheaper dollar store orange soda, so is similar to Sunkist, but it still tastes pretty good & does taste like a known orange soda.

Lemon Lime (Sprite): 4/5 Tastes like Sprite at first but leaves an odd after taste. Ive noticed that if you open your mouth after each drink the after taste is minimal. If it werent for the after taste I would give it 5 stars.

Cranberry Raspberry: 5/5 Not sure what to compare it to, but it tastes great with no weird after flavor.

Energy: 5/5 This came in the trial pack, & since im not into energy drinks I sipped it & had a friend try it. It gets 5 stars because it tastes just like Red Bull according to both of us.

Dr. Pete: 3/5 Its OK but it tastes pretty vanillaish & not all that close to Dr. Pepper. You can sort of taste the similarity but not enough to say "WOW! JUST like or very similar to Dr. Pepper!!!".

Overall Im still a big Sodastream fan, & most of the flavors ive tried I would buy again.
449989449989B002T0KDNIA3F99SMDNEMYR1Derek0011349136000Terrible bitter tasteFirst, I'd like to say I'm a soda enthusiast,and enjoy a variety of brands - store brand regular brand. It's not that I can't tell the difference. I like to.

However, diet lemon-lime is not different, it's NASTY.

It has an incredibly bitter aftertaste. I drink diet sodas all the time and nothing has a bite like this. I kept trying it thinking I would like it or I did something wrong, but it tasted nasty every time.

Having said that, I think it's worthy to note that SodaStream makes a variety of flavors, some of which are unique and delicious. In addition, I have made some drinks with this base by mixing in some tastier flavors.

As another review stated, SodaStream does NOT save money. But it is pretty fun.
449990449990B002T0KDNIA3SVNVNMCJW1FNBarbara0051347062400Amazing!It came a day early and tasted just like the brand stuff! Now I can make it exactly how I like it, even if that means a little watered down!
449991449991B002T0KDNIAQJGMD2KTN4FZA. V. Smith0031347062400Ok for dietI did not really dig this flavor, but only because of the diet aftertaste common with most all diet drinks.
449992449992B002T0KDNIAF1WN7WJRQ1DXNicole A. Sauerwald0051346544000Better than name brandWe love this orange and actually prefer it to store or name brand orange soda. It has a nice, bright orange taste with a tart finish and is our favorite flavor of all the mixes.
449993449993B002T0KDNIA25DBHIPJI0FSNVengeance "Vengeance"0011346457600Diet Cola tastes horribleIt is hilarious to me that they say to compare to Diet Coke. It tastes nothing like Diet Coke, and more like crap.
449994449994B002T0KDNIA16ED4VBYI719DNVGPS0051345248000Definitely ColaThis product smells like cleaning fluid in the container, but definitely tastes like Cola once you add it to the carbonated water.

- Enjoy!
449995449995B002T0KDNIA1PHNBHBQEDFTMGwen Hunter0011344556800Not the originalThe energy drink that they sent had a different color label. It did not taste as good as the one I ordered and it gave me digestive problems. I don't recommend their changed energy drink formula. The original tasted great & is the reason I bought the machine.
449996449996B002T0KDNIA1ROCTSOWQRF25gamingfamily0031344384000Not the best grape...not even 2nd or 3rd bestI keep reading "No Aspartame" but there is artificial sweetner in even some of the non-diet drinks. Gives them a funny taste in my opinion. I love the idea of the Soda Stream...and we like some of the flavors. Just hope they improve
449997449997B002T0KDNIA3CZNNTEY657TEC. Gardner "SgtCheeseNOLS"0051342656000ALMOST Dr. PepperThis product is no Dr. Pepper, but tastes close enough to make me happy with it. I will get it again.
449998449998B002T0KDNIA1UMSB7LAW0RIRWriter of Books - Mage - Mom to Two "Writer, ...0051341619200The ENERGY drink is the only one I can tolerate, and I love that one!We got a Sodastream for Christmas. My kids have lots of fun making soda, and for them it's really become a passed-fad already and it's only July. For myself though, I think all of the sodas are totally gross except for the Energy drink one. They all have this creepy flavor, I'm not sure what exactly it is? You know how Coke tastes great, and Walmart Cola tastes okay, if you had to drink it instead of Coke you would live, right? Well these soda flavors are like three notches below the generic sodas at the store. Like I mentioned, they all have some weird flavor.

Except the Energy drink. WOW, if you like Red Bull, then you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE this. It's like the flavor of Red Bull, bumped up ten times. Plus, I'd say it gives me more energy than Red Bull. Okay, not energy, but the shakes and the so-alert-I-may-explode feeling. It makes me so jittery, IF I drink a lot of it, that I can't think straight and my heart is pounding. If you like that, you'll love this.

To me, I look for the Guarna (sp?) in energy drinks, and this has the absoute most guarna flavor of anything I've tried. I LOVE IT.
449999449999B002T0KDNIA1UCGNCNK2VCBCInane0011340150400Splenda / Sucralose in all flavours...I'm not a fan of diet soda, and even the Non-Diet flavours have splenda in them. This does let them have a more concentrated product and therefore a smaller bottle, but I don't like the taste.
450000450000B002T0KDNIA1VOVSS040NHKDSlash6airhead "Slash6airhead"0051340064000Keeps me wired!This stuff is an incredible value. The soda stream device is a COMPLETE RIP OFF,But if you add up 50 cans of red bull the cost would be anywhere from $150-200 which pays for the cost on the machine and then some with the savings of buying this syrup. The purchase of the machine is worth it but only if you like the energy syrup, otherwise go to walmart and buy a two liter of regular pop for a buck.
