SodaStream and PepsiCo have joined forces to offer South Africans the ability to make a range of popular soft drinks at home within seconds. Thanks to a new range of PepsiCo Sodastream syrups, South African soda fans can now make their favourite PepsiCo drinks to their own tastes at home, whenever the mood strikes. This is great news for anyone who loves soft drinks but also wants to cut back on single-use plastics at home.
While SodaStream has always offered a way for soft drink lovers to make their own soft drinks at home, this new collaboration with PepsiCo is a big deal for anyone who wants to enjoy the real deal, rather than off-brand imitations. Previously, the only way to enjoy Pepsi’s range of soft drinks at home was to buy bottles of the stuff. Which is fine once in a while, but the practice can become wasteful over time.
Luckily, SodaStream now offers a solution with this exciting new range that tastes just like your favourite PepsiCo drinks when added to carbonated water.
The SodaStream PepsiCo range includes five flavours including popular sugar-free options! Fans can choose from sugar-free Pepsi Max and 7 Up Free as well as Pepsi, 7UP, and Mirinda. The syrups have been designed to be used with SodaSteam’s sparkling water markers and work to flavour a 1L bottle of sparkling water after it has been made instantly in a SodaStream machine.
The innovative idea is perfect for summer and saves time and money. A 440ml bottle of SodaStream Pepsi Co syrup costs about R59 and makes nine litres of soft drink. That works out to about R6.50 – R7.00 per litre!
Life with Sodastream:
For anyone growing up in the 70s and 80s, a Sodastream was the aspirational peak of kitchen gadgets, proudly displayed on every counter. The new Sodastream machines are designed to take back their place of pride on the kitchen counter with beautiful simplicity: sleek, stylish and definitely fit to flaunt.
The machines are a great alternative to buying bottles of sparkling water and soft drinks and allow you to transform ordinary tap water into sparkling water in seconds. By making ordinary tap water fun and exciting to drink, SodaStream says it helps you drink more water – 43% more according to SodaStream’s research.
Not only are you drinking more water, but you’re also saving the environment; SodaStream says that one SodaStream bottle replaces 5 070 bottles (an average family over 3 years). Every SodaStream bottle works toward eliminating thousands of single-use plastic bottles and keeps our planet healthier and cleaner for everyone.
In 2018, SodaStream was acquired by beverage giant PepsiCo as part of a multi-billion dollar buyout. The new range of SodaStream PepsiCo syrups forms part of PepsiCo’s commitment to cut virgin plastic per serving by 50% across its global food & beverage portfolio by 2030, using 50% recycled content in its plastic packaging and scaling the SodaStream business globally, an innovative platform that almost entirely eliminates the need for beverage packaging, among other levers.
