I've often said that I wish I could have a carbonated tap. Fizz, baby, fizz!

Fizz. We have been looking at one of these for a while. As long as I am commenting, have you seen crockpot365.blogspot.com ? I have no connection to the author but it's gluten free crockpot recipes. So far they have all turned out well for me. Bubby water would take our meals up another notch.

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love other people's birthdays so much. I also love that you're a birthday-pancake type of girl, because I am 100% birthday pancakes.

This year was the first time I ever successfully made my own I-turned-30-flapjacks, thanks to Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix. SO GOOD.

Anyway, on to the question: FIZZY! I drink so much effing fizzy water it's ridiculous. I love to add a little fresh juice or sweet apple vinegar to it. Yum.

Have a great day, girl. Celebrate you!

Jenni said...

I would make the fizzy water but my husband would do the soda - we have both been very interested in it but he didn't want to commit to the price tag without a sample since he is a slave to the dark temptress :). I know for sure I want it though!

Sam said...

I would make soda, which I call pop. :) Happy Birthday!!

damselflydiary said...

Hmm, I'd probably start with just fizzy water and go from there. Maybe add some juice to the water. I am trying to avoid sugary drinks but maybe this would be healthier!

Happy Birthday!

And, thanks for sharing!

Jordan said...

I'd make plain fizzy water and flavor it naturally with limes/lemons. Or maybe even try adding a little Crystal Light for flavor.

Happy birthday!

Following you on twitter, and I tweeted about the giveaway: https://twitter.com/#!/j_mosh/status/189018608804966401

Happy Birthday April and Otto! I hope you have a fabulous day! I know you have been in Wilmy a lot lately, I would love to have lunch somtime when you are here! Leta me know :)
I would make both fizzy water and soda! Yum!

Jeanna said...

I would make soda! Dr Pete would be my first choice!

Lynelle said...

Happy Birthday!! Probably would make Soda first but love fizzy water too.

jordan said...

Happy Birthday! It's so generous of you to GIVE a gift on your birthday. We consume a ton of fizzy water in this house. My husband drinks it to curb soda cravings and I mix it with juice to make spritzers. We would love the crap out of a Soda Stream.

Sam said...

Happy Birthday! So, I would totally do fizzy water in that Soda Stream. Like you, I am trying desperately to kick my Diet Coke habit. Your trick of carbonated water has been working well. I'm in week 3 and this week is BY FAR the hardest. Thanks!

michele said...

I love plain fizzy water, but I also love cola, so there not one answer. Some days just need some sweet bubbles. Like birthdays! Happy happy!

Jen said...

Happy birthday! Glad you had a good one ;) I keep thinking about kicking the soda habit but it's so hard! A soda stream could give me fizzy water that would help wean me off. Thanks for a great giveaway :)

Michele Ann said...

Happy Birthday!! Hope it's super awesome!

I've been eyeing the Soda Stream in the store since you started talking about it. I would totally make plain fizzy water, but I'd also be excited to try to make fun stuff for summer like fizzy strawberry lemonade or fizzy sangria!

Mrs. G said...

Bubbly water for mojitos!

allison said...

I love plain fizzy water, but if I won, I would definitely at least have to try a soda. Great giveaway!

JennySchu said...

I'd do both! I love plain fizzy water most of the time with a generous amount of lemon squeezed in. But a flavored soda is a nice indulgence once in awhile, too. I'd love to try Sodastream's new "Sparkling Naturals" line - such great sounding flavors!

Sarah said...

Happy Birthday! I love the outdoor movie surprise!

I would make soda!

Amanda said...

Happy Birthday!!!

I would make fizzy water, and then try throwing in some juice for "sparkling" juice... I'm slightly addicted to Izze drinks

Ang said...

I'm not a huge fizzy water fan but I love La Croix and it's pricy so I'd try making fruity fizzy water first. :)

Amylynn said...

Happy Birthday!!! And I would totally use this to make fizzy water and fizzy juice infusions:)

Pam said...

I'm a no fizz water kind of girl. However, my hubby is a FIZZ everything kind of guy! So this would be a great new toy for him. I would try to fizz up some red wine though!

Leslie said...

Water for me...soda for the rest of the fam!

funnyhaha said...

I'd make 'spicy water' and add apple/ orange juice. My favorite and the kids', too. BTW, today's my Birthday. Just sayin'. ;)

J said...

Happy birthday April! I would definitely make seltzer, drinking seltzer water with lemon is what helped me kick my diet coke habit! I was totally addicted to DC and fizzy water saved me :)

Shades said...

Happy Belated birthday!
Definitely fizzy! This would be great for my GF son for whom we've been avoiding high-fructose corn syrup. This limits his soda choices, and we've wondered about making it ourselves!

Erin said...

I would looooove to be able to make fizzy water with fruit juice any time I felt like it! Lemon & grapefruit are my faves, but orange is up there too.

Amy said...

I looove fizz, but it has to have some flavour, not just water. So soda for me! :) Happy happy birthday!

DesertHen said...

Plain fizzy water for me please!

Natalie Hinton-Jennings said...

Happy birthday! I too recently had a birthday on April 1st (my 30th, quite traumatizing). I would use my soda stream for fizzy fresh fruit juice drinks.

I also shared this on facebook :) Thanks for the contest!

Jaayimee said...

I will make soda!!! I've been eyeing these machine since Christmas.

Unknown said...

Happy Birthday to you!!
I would love to make soda and also to experiment with fruit juices. I find it fun to create new things. :)

Karen said...

I would make soda, but would definitely try the fizzy water too.

Shane @ The Gluten Free Life said...

Who just drinks fizzy water? ;) Gotta be the soda for me!

Chris Ziegler said...

I would make soda for sure! :) thanks for the chance to win this awesome prize!
