Sodastream syrups?

That's what it does, Bunny. It carbonates cold water, and then after it's carbonated, you pour in whatever flavoring you want and roll it around to mix it and make it into soda or whatever. It's fine without any flavoring.

Thanks Dawg, but without flavor it will taste like sparkling water right? Club soda actually has a different flavor, but I don't know what it is. :/. It wouldn't be a syrup as there is no sugar in club soda.
So, I just wonder if there is something you can add for that flavor.

CWS mentioned that she got a Soda Stream and was using it for club soda. I think most of the flavour comes from the dissolved carbon dioxide which becomes carbonic acid.

Thanks for the link Dawg. I may have to see if I can find a deal like you got. Otherwise the soda stream wouldn't be cost effective for us.

I like Seltzer, which does not contain sodium. Club soda does. I add vinegar (today it is Apple Cider vinegar with mother; yesterday it was black vinegar; the day before was cane vinegar). I also will add freshly squeezed tangerine/lime/lemon/grapefruit juice (not all together and not when I add vinegar!). I also just drink it straight without anything added. I love it this appliance. I take it with me when I go out to the farm...that tells you how much "bubble water" I drink. Which, btw, I read that carbonated water helps with weight loss because it makes you feel full.

Seltzer water is pure carbonated water, with no additives. Club soda is carbonated water to which certain minerals have been added to improve the flavor. Tonic water is carbonated water that has quinine added to it, and has a bitter flavor. It's used with gin.

For more info, look up "the difference between seltzer water, club soda, and tonic water in your favorite search engine.

Tonic water also has sugar or other sweetener. Though I don't like the bitter, the sweet is just more than I can stand.
