I bought a soda thing!
For over a year I have visited the Sodastream soda maker at ShopKo every time I went there. I’d look at it, weigh the pros and cons, ultimately decide I didn’t need it, then walk away. It was especially difficult when it was on sale, but still I stayed strong, and walked away.
But then Brad had to post about his love of sparkling flavored water, and I had to make my comment,
and Lloyd and I went to Lincoln today,
and I went to ShopKo,
and it was on sale!!
And….. I walked away again. Eighty bucks was too much to spend for a whim.
But then…. Tuesday Morning had a soda maker. Not a Sodastream but a Primo something….. And it was only thirty bucks! Sold!
It’s pretty fun. I found a recipe for cream soda syrup that is another post for another day, but for now I’ve had fun making fizzy water.
(I had too much water in the bottle – that’s why it made that crazy loud noise.) It is also interesting that it makes regular water have a slightly salty taste. Apparently that is what the carbonic acid does? (More research required.) You are supposed to buy new tanks from the company, but the tank that this brand has is apparently cheaply refillable if I can find a paintball place. That should be fun!
Side bonus! It is too tall to fit under the cupboards. Awesome.
I can now field your questions, should you have any.
