MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Sales of Sodastream are surging as more and more families are making their own pop at home.
The company reports it sold 2.7 million units in 2011, a 41-percent increase over the previous year.
WCCO’s Chris Stanford found it is fairly east to put together and use, but went to his colleagues in the newsroom and took to the streets of downtown Minneapolis to find out what people think about the taste.
The results of the taste test: Seven out of the 10 could tell which was the brand name and which was Sodastream. Three out of the 10 say they preferred the taste of Sodastream.
Stanford tested the Sodastream Genesis Model, which comes with a variety pack of flavors. You can find it for about $100.
