Have you ever tried a soda maker, or do you own one?

I am thinking of getting one but I'm worried it will taste gross/not be fizzy enough :(

What is your favorite type of soda? Is it soda or pop or something else?

I don't own one, but I'm tempted to buy it.
I like Coke and Vanilla Coke.
Soda.

I've never heard of Squirt! It's this stuff, I think it might be Safeway brand

My family had one when I was a kid and my dad loved that thing. I don't drink pop so I can't comment but he's picky about stuff so I say go for it!

I have the SodaStream and I love it - my favorite thing is to make super fizzy water then mix in Crystal Light's Mojito powder. Yum! Their Appletini and Peach Bellini also make super tasty "sodas."

My favorite real soda is Pepsi One or this brand called Waist Watcher that has a Fresca-like citrus soda that's made with splenda (I have to be careful with aspartame, it gives me wicked headaches sometimes). I wish Crystal Light would switch to splenda, I'd make it more often.

That is the one I'm looking at getting! I can get it for a pretty good deal so I've just been wishy washy haha. And I probably wouldn't use the traditional sodas, more like the fruity things you mentioned!

Pretty much any powdered mix works - my kids like carbonating their kool-aid (you just have to get the kind that's already sweetened because adding your own sweetner doesn't always work too well).

One word of warning though, powder and carbonation can equal wooshing overflow. (Not that I'd know from experience or anything... *ahem*)

It's pop. I don't really drink it (maybe once a month), but I do like Dr. Pepper, Sprite and Root Beer.

I have a soda stream and the sodas it makes are pretty tasty.

Plain Coke is my favorite soda.

I know, the one I was looking at had one review that said it was awful and didn't make things fizzy so I decided to come here :)

Nope. No interest.

I probably like root beer best. And everything is coke. Though with my kids I say soda cause saying coke confuses them.

I call it fizzy drink. I would never buy one of those machines because I drink like maybe one glass of fizzy drink a week, they're just not that great to me. My favourite when I do drink them is probably just L&P which is a new zealandf drink, or ginger beer.

We had a SodaStream when I was a kid and I remember the cola just tasting cheap. But then, most cola aside from Coca Cola and maybe RC Cola sucks, in my opinion.

I call it soda. Most everyone here in the UK calls it pop but I don't like that word so I switched, haha.

Ive tried a friends. It tasted just fine but it was overpriced and the refills for it were way overpriced as well.

I've thought about it, and maybe buying coke via syrup so we could save money. The comments here have interesting ideas though.

Coke Zero Cherry is my absolute favorite, followed by Fanta Orange Zero.

As for the last, I grew up in the South, so everything carbonated is coke. I usually reference it as Soda here in the great white north. The first time I heard someone say pop I had no idea what they were referencing. I still have trouble connecting the dots sometimes.

When we ran the math we figured after buying the carbonation and syrups we'd only really be saving $1 a month? It was something really small. But, the NOVELTY! haha
