I scream, you scream, we all scream for Soda Stream!

The kind folks at Soda Stream sent my family and I a wonderful package with a Home Soda Maker to try out.  In the package was a Fountain Jet and many soda mixes.

Fountain Jet and Mixes received from Soda Stream

Home Soda Makers

Making carbonated water and soft drinks is simple! Turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds, with no clean-up. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time. No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With a variety of colors and silhouettes, you'll be sure to find a soda maker to match with any decor.

The information directly above is from Soda Streams website.  What they say is 100% true so I didn't feel the need to try and reword it.  Instead I will share the step-by-step pictures from our 1st time using the Fountain Jet.  

1st steps was to hook up the CO2 tank, fill the container with
cold water and secure it in the Fountain Jet.
My husband, the hand model, pressed the button to activate
the CO2 tank.  You hold the button in until you hear 3 buzzes.
Then we sat laughing with our 5yr old who was laughing HYSTERICALLY
because the 3 buzzes sounded like farts to him.  I'm sure Soda Stream never
imagined that "farts" would be a part of a review posted for them.  Sorry Soda Stream!
But it really WAS funny!
The kids wanted the "PINK" soda so we measured out the Pink Grapefruit
We followed instructions and slowly poured the concentrate with the bottle tilted.
Don't worry if your hand model spills a drip or two, it wiped up no problem!
And there you have it!  
I will admit that I didn't care for the Diet Pink Grapefruit soda.  There was nothing wrong with it, it's just a personal taste preference.  Next we made a bottle of Root Beer and MMMMMMMMMmmmmm MMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.  It was especially good after sitting in the frige over night.
