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!
260794260794B002AK88SYA1PR38EIX6HLIMJennifer 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.
260795260795B002AK88SYA25N9I9KD03VVDdschwartz1151327449600Good 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.
260796260796B002AK88SYAQW8GY3ZLVN6ZChristopher 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.
260797260797B002AK88SYA2R2G3MTCN2ARCM. 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).
260798260798B002AK88SYA3FO5VN7PXHI3MK. 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.
260799260799B002AK88SYAN0N05A9LIJEQcritters1151323993600Really 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.
260800260800B002AK88SYA3NK1OLP37HOU2NH 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.
260801260801B002AK88SYA3GD1VX6SQC6I0B. 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.
260802260802B002AK88SYA1OZ9C4MV8IVINDouglas 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.
260803260803B002AK88SYA1KYZSWTMMVRWXN.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.
260804260804B002AK88SYA234OTM2C37RTSjo3441304812800product 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.
260805260805B002AK88SYA1RPVOVIXVQ2TUClarissia 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?
260806260806B002AK88SYA247YCDARQ8YUZNibiru20125741312848000Ginger 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!
260807260807B002AK88SYA9TJFFBOJU0CXD. 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!
260808260808B002AK88SYA2X3L31KCXBHCLWorking 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.
260809260809B002AK88SYABZ04EVNDQVIJChristine 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.
260810260810B002AK88SYA5BQCMO9FBW0SA 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?
260811260811B002AK88SYA1QIHNZHUHQV08Susan 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.
260812260812B002AK88SYA2BBPGVRFYRBJPJ. 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.
260813260813B002AK88SYA1VPXODUN52EDQThe 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.
260814260814B002AK88SYA3F8AS5A9CTFMAmobe2331329782400don'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.
260815260815B002AK88SYA1TSJR1YF6ORC0V. 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.
260816260816B002AK88SYA3TEJX0EVDQNK5Wookie2351299888000Bang 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!
260817260817B002AK88SYA1FZXKTN68KBCBC. 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.
260818260818B002AK88SYA34J59UACBK61Dknife 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
260819260819B002AK88SYA2IEJQ8754BMSIWolfQueen130041349222400Some 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.
260820260820B002AK88SYA3F99SMDNEMYR1Derek0011349136000Terrible 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.
260791260791B002AK88SYAKGRTGZRH5TGBVespere1131332288000Redbull?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.
260792260792B002AK88SYA57AL4UMTTPDGJ. 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.
