Does anyone have one of these? The machine that turns water into soda's and energy drinks. I was thinking about buying one but I'm not sure if it works or not. Anybody have any experience with it?

You buy it, then pay more for the syrup than soda actually costs.

My mom has one, but she uses it more for making seltzer. It came with a bunch of soda samples. I tried a few, they're not that good.

I would consider getting one, but only because I drink tons of seltzer. I wouldn't get it if you plan on making soda with it.

Definitely more eco-friendly though, if you're into that.

Give me the money and I'll flush it down the toilet for you.

I have one and love to make fizzy water with it. I mix that 50/50 with fruit juice in lieu of soda. The soda packs suck. If that's what you want, the. stick with Coke/Pepsi.

Could you use it to make plain wine into sparkling wine?

In theory, yes, but I learned the hard way why you are only supposed to mix water by itself. I tried to do a bottle with just a little bit of the fruit flavored essence that it came with already mixed in, and when you try to take the bottle off it sprays everywhere. I looked in the directions after the fact because I'm smart like that, and they said do not carbonate anything but 100% water.

They say to only use fresh, cold water. I haven't tried with anything else.
