I’ll be the first person to admit that I have quite the addiction to pop. Most of the time I do drink caffeine-free diet, but I always have to drink pop. Sometimes even three times a day. Every summer I keep telling myself that I’m going to cut back on the pop and start drinking more water. I’m sure you can guess that each summer it doesn’t happen. After getting the opportunity to test out the SodaStream, a healthier pop-alternative, I thought that this summer may be different.
