SodaStream SodaMix – Cola

This is SodaStream’s basic cola flavoring. But when you check out the reviews, you will see they are lumped together with many other flavors. This is because on the product page you may select the individual flavor you desire. So the system sees this as one item with different options. We have read through the reviews to let you know what people are saying about the different flavors. This will save you time; you won’t have to read a bunch of opinions regarding a product you aren’t interested in purchasing.

The combined flavors have an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars. 55% of the reviews for these flavors are positive and paired with a four or five-star rating. Why such a low approval rating? Most of the complaints relating to the cola stem from the addition of sucralose (the sweetener found in Splenda.) The standard, non-diet flavors all have sucralose in addition to real sugar. Since sucralose is sweeter than sugar, this allows SodaStream to offer a decent level of sweetness in a small amount of syrup. They do also offer all-sugar flavors, which require you to use more flavoring per bottle and also ends of being more expensive. Not everyone is put off by the sucralose taste, but if you are sensitive to the flavor of artificial sweeteners, this may be a problem for you. Many people would rather have the sucralose instead of the corn syrup found in most sodas. Although sucralose is technically an artificial sweetener, it does come from sugar, making it a more attractive option to many soda drinkers.

Many people also don’t like that the flavor is not identical to the cola they are accustomed to drinking. This, unfortunately, can not be helped. Every brand of cola has a different flavor profile. SodaStream is no exception. Some people say this cola is closest in flavor to RC Cola, rather than the more popular Coke and Pepsi. Anyone who is looking for an exact match to either Coke or Pepsi is likely to be disappointed in this product, This is clearly a matter of personal preference. The best idea is to try a flavor sampler kit before you commit to an entire bottle of a certain flavor. This way you won’t be stuck with a lot of a flavor you don’t enjoy.

SodaStream SodaMix – Diet Cola (16.9 fl oz.)

 

This is SodaStream’s diet cola flavoring. But when you check out the reviews for this product, you will see they are lumped together with most of the other flavors. This is because on the product page you select the actual flavor you want. So the system sees this as one item with different options. We have read through the reviews to let you know what people are saying about the different flavors. This will save you time; you won’t have to read a bunch of opinions regarding a product you aren’t interested in purchasing.

The combined flavors have an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars. 55% of the reviews for these flavors are positive and paired with a four or five-star rating. Why such a low approval rating? Most of the complaints are related to the addition of sucralose to the non-diet flavors. Clearly, those complaints do not apply to the diet flavors which are expected to have artificial sweeteners. The diet flavors are actually very popular among diet soda drinkers. Overall, the diet cola has a very high approval rating. Many say this flavor is very similar to Diet Coke. Obviously, none of the flavors will be able to exactly duplicate a name brand. Anyone who is looking for a very distinct flavor profile ought to try the flavors through a sample pack. This way you won’t end up stuck with an entire bottle of something you don’t want.

SodaStream Sparkling Natural Sodamix – Cola

BUY NOW

This is SodaStream’s natural cola, which has no artificial sweeteners or corn syrup. It is only sweetened with pure sugar. It has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. 79% of the reviews for the natural cola are quite positive and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. This flavor is much more well-received than the standard cola, which has sucralose in addition to real sugar.

Many people say they did not initially like this product when following the recipe on the side of the bottle, only to find out they like it quite a bit if they add more syrup. Commercial colas are very sweet, and adding extra flavoring makes this one more on par with the national brands. There are also those who suggest using less of the syrup to get the best flavor, although it won’t be as sweet as its store-bought counterparts. Personal preference is key here. If you don’t like the soda made with this at first, play around with different levels of syrup to find what best suits your taste buds.

The biggest complaint you will find regarding the natural cola is the higher price tag. This costs about twice as much as the standard cola flavoring. Some people are willing to pay extra to get what they want, some are not. If you are looking to save money by making your own soda and are accustomed to cans of the national brands loaded with corn syrup, this product is not for you. But if natural sugar is important to you, and you normally buy the Mexican Coke or Pepsi (which is made with real sugar) at $1 per 12 ounce bottle, you can save money making your own.

People say this flavor is not exactly like the cola they are used to drinking. Many refer to a background flavor that is “fruity” or “botanical.” This leads some users to enjoy it more than their normal cola, while others don’t like it as much. Unfortunately, the natural all-sugar flavors do not come in sampler packs, so the only way to find out if you like it is to take the plunge and get the entire bottle.
