226262226262B002T0NWKEA134O89X79ASVAChris Okennon "Big Kahuna"2251310515200Love it!This stuff is wonderful. I like carbonated drinks, but not the sweetness or all the strange ingredients. I use this with a very small amount of syrup or lemon juice and it's great!
226263226263B002T0NWKEAIUB4K9SYEDP5Michael J. Horist2231304121600It's ok, but it's no "Diet Coke"As other reviews have mentioned, this pice is ridiculous. However the product itself is decent. I purchased this elsewhere because I love the taste of Diet Coke and read some reviews that tastes just lke Diet Coke. (My parents have had a soda fountain in their house since I was 2, I'm 31 now) ... This tastes alot like Coke but no like Diet Coke(which makes sense, it doesn't use aspartame, it uses the sugar free sugar stuff)

It is nice being able to make soda on demand though ... I'm going to siphon some syrup from my parents and try that (if it works, you can get 5 gallon "bags" of Diet Coke from SAMs club, makes 35 gallons of soda)
226264226264B002T0NWKEA14ZZLSWQIQIHKRobert C. Compono "RC"142011287360000Are they kidding with the price?Either I'm missing something and this is a double pack, which the description does not seem to support, or these people are insane. There are loads of places to get this same product for $3.99, $4.99, even as high as $5.99. What are they thinking?
226265226265B002T0NWKEA1M7GCMBNIV6CS. U. Cohen "STEFF"1141345161600brings back memoriesOver 70 years ago my Grampa took me to the beach almost every day., To me, highlight of the outing was when he bought us "Orange Crush" in the heavy dark brown bottle, from the vendor boy. Back then the juice was unfiltered and there was even small bit of orange in it. For many years I hve tried to find something to drink like the ORIGINAL OC.(to no avail) I use my seltzer siphon and if I tinker with the amount of syrup I can get really close to perfect. I am so glad I bought this, just great.,
226266226266B002T0NWKEA2OV6KI5Z7GNAHDnL_Zee1141341273600Pretty good taste goes a long way
226267226267B002T0NWKEA1Z2MUKE041APJGregory I. Ceaser "S8ntsfan"1151341014400Energy Drink vs Red BullI love this product. I've heard alot about the Sodastream and finally decided to purchase one, and as I drink a lot of Red Bull (mainly as a cocktail mixer), I gave this mix a try. Quite impressed on just how I can't really tell the difference between this Energy Drink Sodamix and Red Bull, other than the price. On average I spend about $2.25 per can of Red Bull, and this Sodamix will yield 50 8oz servings, so easy math says $112 for 50 cans of Red Bull or $6.99 for the Sodastream Energy Drink Sodamix 16.9 Fl oz bottle and 50 8oz servings. And as not to be biased, I have a few friends who also drink Red Bull who all agreed that it was a toss up on tasting the difference between the two products, and how much money could be saved.
226268226268B002T0NWKEA3UKLX2A9T589CTW Brown, Author, Editor, and Reviewer "Todd ...1151337385600Energy Drink Flavor is Spot On!I have to say that if you are a fan of the energy drink with the initials R B (moo) then you will be a HUGE fan of this. The flavor is a perfect match. I am so hooked that I will never spend a dime in the store for the name brand again.
226269226269B002T0NWKEA1BV34VNU2SF0KAmarrna Sunreaver "Cloth Tank"1121335744000NASTY!!I will never understand why they put Splenda into non-diet drinks but I can tell you that it was a horrible idea. So diet is undrinkable and so is regular. It tastes sooo awful. Maybe they'll get with the program and fire the fool that thought people would want to buy crap in a bottle.
226270226270B002T0NWKEA1XK4VP74IB9TQFastphoto1151332460800Great Cola TasteThe tase of this cola is better than the "REAL" cola. I drink 1/3 of a liter of this cola and then I switch to a non-caffine cola of which I drink 2/3 of a liter daily.
226271226271B002T0NWKEAKGRTGZRH5TGBVespere1131332288000Redbull?Someone said that it tasted like a Sprite. No it doesn't to me. Not even close in my opinion. It's a Energy Drink. It tastes more like Redbull but with a less tart flavor. I couldn't taste any after taste so that was a plus. Even if it does have Splenda in it, I don't even taste that and I don't like Splenda. It isn't my favorite flavor as I am not a fan of Redbull, but if you do then this syrup just may be for you.

*EDIT* I just realized when I wrote that it does not taste like a Sprite the person was commenting about the Lemon Lime syrup. I apologize about that.
226272226272B002T0NWKEA57AL4UMTTPDGJ. Jackson "Jacq"1121331942400Diet Flavors are Not Great - Nasty AftertasteI absolutely love my Sodastream because I drink a lot of sparkling water and this has saved me a fortune! Recently I thought it would be great to have some of the soda flavorings around for guests, mixed drinks, etc. However, I have not been thrilled with diet flavors I have tried so far. Of the three I have tried (diet tonic, diet ginger ale, and diet root beer), I think the diet root beer is the best, but is not even close to any of the name brand diet root beers. Both the diet ginger ale and diet tonic have a nasty aftertaste - way worse than any name brand diet soda on the market. The worst part about the aftertaste is that it doesn't seem to go away. As I write this, I still have a bad taste in my mouth - and it's been nearly a half hour since I drank some of the diet ginger ale. That alone compelled me to pull out my computer and log a review. I have tried them several times now, altering the amount of syrup to see if it would make a difference, and each time I end up pouring it down the drain. I am SO disappointed by this as I had high hopes for flavorings.
226273226273B002T0NWKEAZCXYCWCCT334Steve M1131329436800Overpriced - Buy anywhere for lessGood products
Love Diet Energy 5/5 and Diet Root Beer 5/5

a couple stinkers -
Diet Fountain Mist (Mountain Dew-like, tart fake flavor) 1/5
Diet Dr. Pete (Weak flavor, not bold like Dr. Pepper) 3/5

Amazon - Do better on price! This is 5.99 to 6.99 in the stores (you are charging double)
Sodastream - Reformulate these two!
226274226274B002T0NWKEA1PR38EIX6HLIMJennifer Colbert "jperezcolbert"1111327536000Lemon Lime - or nasty medicine?I did NOT like this lemon lime flavor. It made me gag. It tastes like some kind of horrible medicine.

The diet Cranberry was drinkable, I can tell how other people would like it but it was not my favorite.

Dr. Pete is great!

I have yet to try any other flavors. I have made my own syrups to use with it instead.
226275226275B002T0NWKEA25N9I9KD03VVDdschwartz1151327449600Good flavorDiet Ginger ale is great from the store. Schwepes and Canada Dry have good offerings. They taste just slightly less sweet then the regular versions. The soda stream offering is quite good as well, I recommend this.
226276226276B002T0NWKEAQW8GY3ZLVN6ZChristopher Baxter1151326931200ExcellentThis diet ginger ale syrup mix is great. As good as any other ginger ale's out there and a much cheaper way to get it.
226277226277B002T0NWKEA2R2G3MTCN2ARCM. Castano1151326153600great taste and easy to use measuring cap made this produce funI love that the product is low calorie and that the syrup is so close to the energy drink flavor (without the high sugar).
226278226278B002T0NWKEA3FO5VN7PXHI3MK. Harris1131324425600Win some, lose someI recently received a soda stream, and have been playing around with the flavors. What I find is that everyone has their own amount of syrup they like added to the bottle. For example, with the cream soda I had to use about half the recommended amount, but with the diet root beer I like to add more mix. The real thing with these flavors - you just have to try them. I really like the diet cranberry, diet grapefruit and the diet root beer is literally the best soda I've ever had - diet or non-diet. Some others I didn't like so much. The cola didn't really do it for me, and I'm on the fence over the ginger ale. There is a bit of an after taste on the sodas, but they do have a lower calorie count (even the non-diets) than regular sodas. All in all I like the soda stream, it's fun, but I still buy Coke and some other sodas. I am looking forward to trying some more of the exotic soda stream flavors (BBB has almost all of them in stock) and playing with making my own.

3 stars because... well, win some, lose some with the flavors. It's all subject to taste.
226279226279B002T0NWKEAN0N05A9LIJEQcritters1151323993600Really like diet cola and diet lemon lime.The diet cola and diet lemon lime are great to me, but, sadly, I don't like the diet orange. I dearly love having the equivalent of so much weight (regular bottles and cans) in such a small bottle. I'm slowly trying the rest of the diet flavors and hope to find more I like.
226280226280B002T0NWKEA3NK1OLP37HOU2NH People1151323475200FabulousThis is fabulous. Heard about it on Sean Hannity and wanted to try it. My wife bought it for me as an early Christmas present. The set up and operation is super simple. To me the taste is excellent because it is so fresh. I like Polar sodas and those work out to about $.98 a liter. This does $.67 a liter. The diet cola does not have the classic metal taste and no aspartame. If you love diet soda you will love this. If you don't, you will leave a poor review. I thought it would taste like a cheap store brand diet cola, and it is so much better than that. It reminded me of Coke Classic.
226281226281B002T0NWKEA3GD1VX6SQC6I0B. Finch1121323475200Diet drinks taste like diet soda from the old daysI got a SodaStream for my birthday. It comes with a 12 pack syrup sampler with 6 diet syrups and 6 "regular" syrups. I have only tried the diet, caffeine-free syrups. None of them come close to tasting anything as good as the diet drinks I buy at the grocery store. Even the store brands taste better than the SodaStream diet drinks. They remind me of the pre-Nutrasweet sodas that used saccharine as the sweetener. I use my Soda Stream to make seltzer and it does a great job at that! I've been experimenting with using drink mixes like Crystal Light, and those work OK. DISCLAIMER: I'm one of the folks who get a bad aftertaste with Splenda and Splenda is the sweetener used in the diet SodaStream drink syrups.
226282226282B002T0NWKEA1OZ9C4MV8IVINDouglas 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.
226283226283B002T0NWKEA1KYZSWTMMVRWXN.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.
226284226284B002T0NWKEA234OTM2C37RTSjo3441304812800product 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.
226285226285B002T0NWKEA1RPVOVIXVQ2TUClarissia 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?
226286226286B002T0NWKEA247YCDARQ8YUZNibiru20125741312848000Ginger 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!
226287226287B002T0NWKEA9TJFFBOJU0CXD. 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!
226288226288B002T0NWKEA2X3L31KCXBHCLWorking 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.
226289226289B002T0NWKEABZ04EVNDQVIJChristine 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.
226290226290B002T0NWKEA5BQCMO9FBW0SA 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?
