    Will eventually be a problem for KO

    Kool aid with fizz, Why would anyone leave a classic for a third rate imitation. In five years the soda stream accessories will only be found in yard sales. Flash in the pan, wanna-be fade.

    • I dnot think so. I have owned a Sodastream for over three years and use it weekly. I even use Coca-Cola syrup that I buy from Sam's. Fresh Soda is the best Soda. Own both sotcks to and up 18% on Soda and 15% on KO. Hope the KO split doesn't slow down KO but I afraid that Soda will eventually.

      • This is a fade like yo yos. It will have a short time negative effect but in the long term will fade away. People want simplicity,they want immediate gratification. Are you going to go through all of that when there is a Coke in their 'frig?

      • Hey gregg.. Welcome to the KO board. Dont hang here much as not much into KO these days & tired of the Dwucks gold diatribes. I do own some soda however so am happy to hear from a satisfied customer expecially one of 3 years. I certainly agree that fresh fountain pop is the best way to enjoy and to point out that its KO syrup that makes KO the exceptional product and EZ to enjoy with the sodastream machine.
        Keep us KO board mbrs posted on your experiences.

        PS.. Still prefer Pep over KO in the battle of the classic CSD companies.
