Anyway, I had to give up caffeine shortly after that. Too many headaches and other problems going on with my body. I really missed my Dr. Pepper and would complain about it all the time for about 3 weeks. After I was detoxed, I couldn’t believe how much better I felt.
Brian was a big diet coke drinker, so much so that he got aspartame poisoning. So, he has given up sodas also.
The kids still drink soda. Nick doesn’t drink much else, even though I try to convince him to have a little water now and then. Jake and Chase drink soda occasionally, but not all the time.
So, it’s been a LONG time since I’ve had any soda, but I came across the Sodastream. You can make your own at home and it doesn’t have ANY high fructose corn syrup. (The commercials promoting high fructose corn syrup just make me sooooo mad!!! another story, another day).
The Sodastream has been fun. Brian and I made the diet cola for him to try the other day. We got everything out and read through the instructions and got started. I filled the bottle with very cold water to the fill line, he hooked up the gas container and off we went. We had water shooting out all over the place. We were laughing so hard and having a good time. I’m glad it was just water and not the syrup to make the soda. That would’ve been hard to clean. 🙂
So, back to the instructions and a little look online at Sodastream’s website to see what we did wrong. We didn’t screw the top of the bottle into the machine. So, once we got it figured out, it was sooo easy! Brian enjoyed having his beloved diet cola. He liked the taste and I liked that it made a small amount that wouldn’t go bad and be thrown away.
Last night, Jake came over and saw the Sodastream on the table and wanted to try some. He made cream soda and LOVED it! He said it tasted better than the kind at the store.
There are so many flavors to choose from and it’s so easy to do. I highly recommend that if you are going to drink sodas, you get one for your home.
