No idea why I haven't done this before as I only drink fizzy water, hate anything that isn't fizzy proper weird I know
Can you make soda water with soda stream that tastes like supermarket bottled soda water?
Also which machine to buy?

well sodastream carbonates water, so it makes tap water into "fizzy water"

soda water was typically made with sodium bicarbonate bitd, but nowadays is mainly just "fizzy water"

yeah but I prefer soda water
they still sell soda everywhere as an alternative to carbonated water
apparently you can mix in the bicarb yourself so will give it a go

seems a good idea
I hate flat water ( proper nan) but also want to save plastic waste, packaging, transport etc etc seems like a no brainer to me
definitely less nan than grinding my own coffee every morning and combining with foamed oat milk like a proper nan hipster foodie, now that's major fucking nan

lol you can't just call everything you don't like nankid.

At a push a nankid would have some instant coffee in the office with lots of sugar and milk…but they'd be dreaming about the hot chocolate, horlicks or even hot ribena that's waiting for them at their/Mum's/Nan's home.

Ha no I’m saying I’m major nan with the coffee
Mrs hates coffee so the barista hasn’t had a smudge

I literally cannot drink a flat cold drink it has to be fizzy and proper like makes you hiccup and instantly burp fizzy otherwise it doesn’t quench my thirst at all

Am I the only one who likes that insane cold fizz that makes you hiccup ?

Not sure how wearing a pair of liner gloves is nan? I ride my bike everyday (amsterdam) and need non freezing digits…
