Today is my birthday and since parties are pretty common for Birthdays I thought this would be the perfect giveaway for today!

Here is Giveaway #3 of “My Favorite Things Birthday” week.

Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time. No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse.

My Thoughts: I was very excited to try this out and it arrived just in time for my daughter’s birthday.  Along with the Genesis, they also sent me several bottles of soda for us to try.  My favorite one was the Diet Root Beer.  It was awesome.  The Diet Cola tasted like Diet Pepsi, rather than Diet Coke and the Lemon Lime was just like Sprite.  We were very happy with the flavors and had fun trying different sodas.

Besides tasting great, it also was super easy to use.  The machine doesn’t even require any power.  Just fill the bottle with water, attach it to the machine and push the carbonation button down 3-4 times.  At that point you have carbonated water but you can then add the soda flavors.  Just fill a cap full (to the fill line) and slowly pour it into the bottle.  Once you close the bottle you just need to gently tip it side to side to give the flavor a little mix.  That’s all.  So simple anyone can do it.

We don’t drink a lot of soda at our house but when we have people over, I now how a variety to share and a conversation piece! Everyone loves it.
