When I was searching, of all things, an Internet price comparison/deal site, I found a recipe for making your own soda. The site, Become.com, has a blog with these informational type articles. A plus being that if you find a product you like in an article, you’re in the right place to research and price it.
Read the article, “Make your own soda with an organic soda syrup”, here.
Great article and now I can attempt to make healthier sodas. I see lots of floats in my future–with frozen yogurt, of course. After reading the article, I searched for the root beer extract–which I didn’t know existed until now. I not only found it at a great price (4 oz/8.25), but discovered a great site for extracts and flavorings. It’s now bookmarked.
FYI, in case you want to distill some soda after reading the article, the retailer is Cook’s Vanilla. They have other flavors, like Bourbon Vanilla, Chocolate, Hazelnut , coffee and Peppermint. Lots of flavors; organic, flavored extracts, powdered, and alcohol free; as well as premium vanilla.
I will have to get a carbonation machine, but as I recall Doctor Oz featured a mini-one that should do the trick. And now I know all the places to search for the best price. If you want to compare other items beyond http://www.become.com, read here.
UPDATE: I found a carbonating system that’s not only reasonable, but is also eco-mindful. The iSi Twist ‘n Sparkle Beverage Carbonating System is priced at $44 on Amazon. Use the comparison sites listed here to get the best price. Read about the system at http://twistnsparkle.com/.
