It is the brand of carbonation systems for home use. They were invented in the early 1900s to add carbon dioxide (CO2) to drinking water. At that time they were called “apparatus for aerating liquids”. The newer versions allow for adding flavored concentrates and before you know it – you have homemade carbonated, flavor drink or soda pop.
The initial machines manufactured were rather big and were sold to the larger households of the upper classes of London, including the royal household. There were flavors with unusual names, one being the well-known sarsaparilla released in the 1920s. The commercial carbonation machines were also introduced from the 1920s and were very well liked. The first smaller machines for home carbonation was manufactured in 1955.
With so many types of concentrate, various and unique flavors of soft drinks can be made. In the times when the systems were most popular, many well-known brands were designed for SodaStream from the concentrate such as Fants, and Sunkist.
In the early 1990s, the business merged with Soda-Club and it has since relaunched with a marketing plan geared more towards health or healthiers drink for kids or families.
Now there are different competing brands of soda concentrate for SodaStream. Aromhuset is the Superior mark and their Zero (sugar free) series taste AS they as sugar sweetened. Take a watch on their Zero Indian Tonic at amazon United Kingdom.
The SodaStream drink maker comes with a canister with CO2 that is pushed into water which makes the water fizzy. The total product features a machine, carbon dioxide canister, and many reusable drink bottles specially designed for pressurizing. After filling a bottle with water, you screw it to the machine, push a control button, and create sparkling water. Carbonated sparkling water is also known as seltzer water. There are very different flavors of concentrated syrups allowing the consumer to generate regular or diet soda pop (or soft drinks). When the canister is empty, you return it and purchase a new canister of CO2.
The buzz on the SodaStream throughout the 70s and 80s in the UK and presently are connected with nostalgia for all those time periods. The advertising best tonic for gin jingle in 1970 was “get busy with the fizzy” and was so very well liked, that this slogan was added to their logo. It was ultimately dropped in 1996 after 17 years.
MilkStream is a machine made by the very same company to make milkshakes. You simply add milk, soft ice cream and syrup in a tall glass, insert in the machine and a wand extends into the tall glass to whip up a foaming, tasty milkshake.
Today, SodaStream is part of Soda-Club and there are many websites where they could be purchased and all the supplies could be ordered and reordered when needed.
