We have had the SodaStream for a few weeks now. We received the cola, lemon lime and cran-raspberry flavour (we were mostly interested in trying root beer, a house hold favourite, but did not receive it as a sample so bought it instead). We are a family that likes to have various types of drinks (including pops, juices, flavoured water, etc.) in the house so this was interesting to try... I would recommend this product to others, after trying it, as it enabled us to have that variety of drinks. It is a very fast, efficient appliance and gets the job done in seconds. You really have to know how to use this though (despite the instructions) because each flavour differs and can really effect the taste of the product. Overall, I call this product neat because while it is a cool appliance to have around, it is not essential. It did not prevent us from buying our typical drinks at the grocery store (saving money, not really...) just because they don't have that same taste. Fun to use though! Especially when guests are over.
