The Good: Calorie free, Tastes great, Fairly inexpensive
The Bad: Requires a pricy machine to make into soda pop.
The Basics: Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix creates a wonderful soda that might be the best Sodastream has to offer, especially for the health-conscious soda pop drinkers!
My wife and I have been trying to live healthier for several months now. As a result, for her twenty-fifth birthday, I picked her up a Sodastream Fizz (reviewed here!). I’ve been getting her various flavors to enjoy with it as we make our own soda pop and the flavor she has gravitated to the most – and I’ve gotten into quite a bit myself – is the Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix. The Diet Pink Grapefruit attracted her for the fact that it was calorie free and me for the love of pink grapefruit. Yeah, I love me my grapefruit soda and Sodastream has a mix that might be better than any prepared grapefruit soda pop I’ve tried before.
In fact, on its own, the Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix might be perfect; though to make it into something truly wonderful, it requires a machine that has a higher cost of operating than it promises. That, though, is not the fault of the Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix.
Available primarily in a 16.9 fl. oz. plastic bottle, Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix is a concentrated flavor syrup for creating Diet Pink Grapefruit soda. At $5 - $7 per bottle, the Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix makes 50 8 oz. servings, though the 16.9 oz. bottle gets me twenty-five servings as we have a 16 oz. bottle for our Sodastream Fizz.
Ease Of Preparation
The Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix is a flavoring to be used with a Sodastream soda pop maker. After one fills the Sodastream bottle with water – I recommend filtered water and when I use my Brita Water Filter Pitcher (reviewed here!) in order to prepare the soda – and carbonates it, they must add a capful of Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix to the bottle. It is that easy. Preparing the Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix into a soda pop is easy and the result is wonderful.
The Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix smells powerfully of grapefruit. In fact, put next to a fresh-cut pink grapefruit and the fresh fruit barely seems aromatic! This is a delightfully scented soda mix.
In the mix and once prepared, the Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Soda Mix is tangy and finishes sweet, to perfectly embody the flavor of pink grapefruit. The slightly sour elements of the drink do not overwhelm the distinct and fruity flavor of the drink. Carbonated when prepared, the bubbles do not diminish the flavor of the drink at all, which is a nice touch.
The Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix does not leave any aftertaste in the mouth, so this is one of the best Sodastream products to act as a thirst-quencher when it is prepared and then refrigerated until cool!
The Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix makes a soda pop, so it is not creating the most nutritious thing in the world. Even so, Sodastream creates soda pops that do not have anywhere near the problems of most sodas. In the case of Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix, this is one of the healthier mixes. It results in a beverage that has zero calories and 20 mg of Sodium (less than one percent of the RDA of Sodium). Outside that, there are no nutritional benefits or detractions to this drink mix or the drink it makes.
Made primarily of water, citric acid and grapefruit juice concentrate, the Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix has nothing bad in it. There is no caffeine, no aspartame, and no calories. It is kosher and carries no allergy warnings.
The Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix is a liquid, so there is the danger of spilling it and wasting some of it. But, for the most part, it is a wonderful drink mix that keeps for quite some time. The bottle I picked up for my wife in May for her 25th birthday had an expiration date of July 7, 2014, so this is a good product to stock up on!
The Diet Pink Grapefruit mix is a light pink color that gets lighter when made into actual soda pop. It washes off nonporous surfaces very easily and comes out of most clothes very well. If it gets on light clothes, consult a fabric guide to get the potential stain out.
Near-perfect, Sodastream Diet Pink Grapefruit Flavored Soda Mix only lacks positive nutritional benefits to make it a perfect drink mix. This is an exceptional product well worth picking up and stocking up on!
