It is the brand name of carbonation systems for home use. They were invented during the early 1900s to add carbon dioxide (CO2) to drinking water. In those days these were called "apparatus for aerating liquids". The newer versions permit incorporating flavored concentrates and before you realize it - you've got homemade carbonated, flavor drink or soda pop.
The very first machines manufactured were rather large and were sold to the houses with more people of the upper classes based in london, including the royal household. There initially were flavors with unusual names, one being the well-known sarsaparilla released in the 1920s. The commercial carbonation machines were also introduced from the 1920s and were very well liked. The first smaller machines for home carbonation was manufactured in 1955.
With so many types of concentrate, different and unique flavors of soft drinks can be produced. In the times when the systems were most popular, many well-known brands were available for SodaStream in the concentrate such as Fants, and Sunkist.
During the early 1990s, the company merged with Soda-Club and it has since relaunched with a marketing plan targeted more towards health or healthiers drink for kids or families.
The SodaStream drink maker features a canister with CO2 that is pushed into water that makes water fizzy. The complete product features a machine, co2 canister, and many reusable drink bottles specially designed for pressurizing. After filling a bottle with water, you screw it on the machine, push a control button, and make sparkling water. Carbonated sparkling water is additionally referred to as seltzer water. There are different flavors of concentrated syrups allowing the user to create regular or diet pop (or soft drinks). When the canister is empty, you give it back and purchase a whole new canister of CO2.
The buzz of the SodaStream during the 70s and 80s in the United Kingdom and currently are connected with nostalgia for those time periods. The advertising jingle in 1970 was "get busy with the fizzy" and was so very popular, that this slogan was included with their logo. It was ultimately dropped in 1996 after 17 years.
MilkStream is actually a machine made through the very same company for making milkshakes. You simply add milk, soft ice cream and syrup inside a tall glass, insert in the machine and a wand extends into the tall glass to whip up a foaming, delicious milkshake.
