SodaStream


It was this device you used to load a canister of gas into the back of, fill the glass bottle with water up to the line and then top the rest off with one of the array of syrup flavours. Then you would insert the bottle into the unit which inserted a tube into the bottle while you were putting it in and you closed the door over it, and then you would press down the button on the top and it with would fill the mixture with gas.
I remember them being nice initially, but then the appeal wore off. It was a fairly cheap quality product for what you were getting, and I remember usually holding down the button too long, too much gas would be shot into the bottle, it would overflow and spill out the door of the unit and make a big mess. Many a towel was cover in the stuff cleaning it up.
Another memory from from the 80's.

Still have one [Cool]

Ok, it´s not a SodaStream but i remember my cousins had one back in the 80s.
I own lots of VHS tapes which include the finnish version of this commercial before the actual movie.

Is it the same commercial just dubbed over in Finnish or an actual Finish commercial? [Smile]
