    of "make your own sodas"? It's one thing if we're talking artisan beverages, it's another to make my own cola. Why the hell do I want to do that?

    I'm already boycotting SodaStream because I can't understand the appeal of it.

      simply the seltzer. Sodastream is more convenient and less expensive than buying commercial seltzer. That said, it's unfortunate, after receiving ours some time ago as a gift, to learn of its connection to the occupied West Bank. Before putting ours away, I'll have to explore the sodamod mentioned in the diary.

      I've stopped lugging heavy bottles and multipacks of cans of soda upstairs and hauling empty bottles and cans by the bag full down to the recycling bin.  I've also ended consuming the risky Asparatine that is in all sugar free store bought soda and now use a safer sweetener in the Soda Stream sugar free varieties.

      I can also make my own flavored or unflavored carbonated water.

      Oh, and I save money.

      This is why so many people love this.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.
