My Review:

My family just loves soda. But buying so much soda can get very expensive. And having cases of soda around the house, and cans filling the refrigerator can be a pain. We live in a fairly small house and having to store cases of soda is hard for us. All of our available storage space is used for other items so having soda cases just clutters the house. But now my family has another option! With the fabulous Flavorstation!  We were very fortunate to be able to review this great appliance.

The unit was incredibly easy to set up. It only took a few minutes from opening it to getting sparking soda. The hardest part was getting it from the box, it is packed well (and that is a good thing). But how would the soda taste? We are accustomed to a certain flavor with our sodas. And we have had “homemade” soda before. (we purchased homemade root beer from a flea market… oh my goodness it was the most horrible thing I have ever tasted!) And it was not good. But my family was eager to give this unit a shot.

When the unit was set up, we decided to try the diet cola first. We just cleaned the reusable bottles and the pumps that came with the kit. Then we picked out our “color” bands, so we would know who’s bottle was who’s. The choices were, blue, yellow, red and green.  OF course being the girly girl my daughter is she just had to have the red bad, and she asked why they didn’t they have pink bands? I picked the yellow band and my husband picked the blue. It is a nice touch to easily be able to tell the owner of the bottle by the color.

Now we are down to business, making the soda! First screw in the bottle to the unit. Make sure it is secure, then you pump the unit three times. Then your hear a buzzing type sound, almost done! Then press the red bar to release some excess gas. Then unscrew the bottle, add three pumps of the diet cola beverage mix, you lightly rock the bottle to mix (do not shake!! This is soda, after all) then you are ready to drink.

I loved the real diet cola taste, this was just like I opened a can of soda. Full of sparkling goodness. It tasted just like the diet cola that I love. My husband was very impressed as well.  He agreed it tasted just like the one we would drink from the cans.

My daughter was a big fan of the sparkling peach tea flavor. She had never had parking tea before and she just loved the unique flavor. I tasted it as well it was very good.

Over the weekend we had guests over, and they were all amazed at our soda machine. They were able to taste, the cola, and all of the other flavors. The diet energy drink was a hit too.

I love the way the appliance just fits in so well in our kitchen, the white unit goes so well with our yellow and green kitchen colors. And the beverage flavor bottles are so small that they can fit in the cabinet or on the counter with ease. Even though they are small, the 16.9 oz bottles of the sparking beverage mix creates 24 – 12oz cans, a whole case of soda from that small bottle, wow! Well that is going to save us a lot of space! Yes! The flavors are 100% natural flavors and contain no high fructose corn syrup. 

I love that this unit does not need batteries, and does not have to be plugged it! One less thing to remember to charge, or to have to buy batteries for, that is a great thing!

So if you are looking to get some space back in your refrigerator, or to just save money on soda. A Primo Flavorstation is what you are looking for! I would recommend this, I was very impressed. You save $$ on soda, without sacrificing on the soda taste you love! They have a nice selection of classic soda flavors, fruit sparklers, teas, and energy drinks. So there will be a flavor to please everyone! I am looking forward to trying the Diet Citrus Mist, I will have to pick one up on my next trip to Lowes.
