After Actress Scarlett Johansson stepped down as Oxfam’s ambassador over her advertisement with Israeli company SodaStream, a company Oxfam boycotts, Canadian Employment Minister Jason Kenney said their move spurred him to buy from SodaStream. […]

Kenney bashed the “anti-Israel obsession” with which leftist groups pursue Israel, even while they ignore countries like Iran which executes political dissidents and homosexuals. …

was looking at them myself. They seem pretty neat and maybe a good idea for a Gin and Tonic.

Oxfam’s original name was the “Oxford Committee for Famine Relief”; they are not very old, dating back to 1942. They’re a leftist front organization that claim their goals are to fight poverty and “injustice”. Funny enough, Coca-Cola is a big donor to Oxfam.

You can get SodaStream at these stores.

I like Splenda sweetner, and Sodastream lets me make diet sodas with splenda. Most sodas sold in the store are made with nutrasweet.

SodaStream has my unqualified recommendation. They’re easy to use, cheap, (60 or 70 litres of excellent soda water for the price of a return-for-deposit canister), and I like the fact the water doesn’t taste like plastic... So it’s also good for mixed adult beverages.

Bought one for my wife for her birthday and we’ve loved it ever since.

What I did was buy an extra canister and extra bottles, but we find we don’t use the bottles.

But go for the extra canister so you keep one in the trunk (they’re the size of a stapler,) and trade it in when you’re near the department store or wherever you get ‘em.

SUPPORT ISRAEL AT THE SAME TIME!

Amazing that Canada is more conservative than America.

Pray America is Waking

look into converting a paintball tank or a large commercial tank.

We have a 20lb tank connected to ours.

17 bucks for a 20 pound tank beats the pants off the soda stream cylinders.

Several welding companies sell small Co2 tanks and fittings for use with portable mig welders.

I have one. The pop isn’t as heavily carbonated, but it does the trick. The Ginger ale and root beer are really good and the cola is ok, but I find the orange doesn’t taste that good.

It’s also about half the calories as Pepsi or Coke.

I’m not big on the Soda Stream (I’m a coffee drinker) but I got my husband one for his birthday several years ago. He loves it! Got one for son and his wife, and one for the inlaws. They all really like them.

I would love to support Sodastream, but unfortunately carbonated beverages wreak havoc on your colon.

Me too, but they (the carbonated beverages) can cause issues when you don't have one (a colon, not a SodaStream) too!

Try 3 squirts from the tangerine/orange Mio. Makes a tasty orange soda.

I just ordered one thru Amazon.

I gave my sisters and their hubbys one each for Christmas. If I had known they came from Israel I would have laughed, as they are obozo butt lickers. Can’t choose yer family.
