New Soda Maker

So you probably saw this on Cortny’s blog, but I thought I’d post it too. We ordered a home soda maker last weekend (to arrive next week), from .

It just seemed like a cool idea and a very earth friendly idea. I was mostly interested in it for the health benefits … i.e. less sugar per serving, and no high fructose corn syrup in their cola (and other) flavorings.

The kit we got is the machine (to the left), 4 1-liter bottles, 3 CO2 cartridges, and 8 flavorings. We’re also talking about way to make our own flavors (just add orange juice, for example).

I’m sure we’ll be posting again after we try it out.

In other news – our request for 2010 Olympic tickets was not selected in the official lottery. We decided that we just really wanted to go, so we bought curling tickets from a broker (double face value + a service charge). I’m sure it will be worth it, but it would have been nice to have gotten tickets to one of the events we requested originally.
