When I first discovered Sodastream almost two years ago, I was very into all of the Sodastream Diet Flavors. I got my first taste of a diet soda shortly after my little brother was born. My mother switched from regular soda to strictly drinking Diet Dr. Pepper ® to help lose that baby weight (sorry Mom!). If you wanted a soda in our house, you had to learn to love the saccharin-sweetened beverage or simply do without. I have been a diet soda drinker ever since but I was never thrilled with them.
Diet soda got better with the introduction of NutraSweet ® but it was Splenda ® that really hooked me on diet soda. My family began drinking our local supermarket brand of diet soda because it was sweetened strictly with Splenda®. You can imagine how pleased I was to learn Sodastream used Splenda ® in all the Sodastream Diet Flavors.
There are currently 21 Diet Sodastream Flavors to choose from. If you are a diet soda drinker and prefer the use of Splenda ®, you are very likely to find a Diet Sodastream Flavor that will please you. Let’s start by taking a look at all the diet Sodastream flavors and the nutritional information.

My Thoughts on Sodastream Diet Flavors:
For the most part, I find the Sodastream Diet Flavors to be very good. They are not exactly like their name brand equivalent but they come pretty close in my opinion. Many Sodastream users state they can’t tell a difference between the Sodastream Diet Flavors and their regular brand. Others, particularly those sensitive to Acesulfame-K, still complain of an aftertaste but even Diet Coke uses Acesulfame-K these days.
My personal favorites are the Diet Cola, Diet Lemon Lime, Diet Dr. Pete (formerly Diet Pete’s Choice) and the Diet Pink Grapefruit. I was quite surprised by the Diet Pink Grapefruit. I don’t even like Grapefruit and I wasn’t a big fan of Fresca ® but Sodastream’s Diet Grapefruit is my favorite flavor of them all and many folks tell me it is their favorite as well. Sodastream’s Diet Root Beer is a huge hit in my house but I’m not a big fan. Nor am I a fan of Sodastream’s Diet Ginger Ale but as I’ve said before, I’m married to my Canada Dry Diet Ginger Ale and Sodastream’s version didn’t stand a chance.
The truth about Sodastream Diet Flavors, however, is that everyone seems to have a different opinion. I can sit here and tell you what I like and you could absolutely hate it. The only way to really know if you will like the Sodastream Diet Flavors would be to try them for yourself. With that said, I will say that if you are married to your Diet Pepsi, I doubt you will be pleased with Sodastream’s Diet Cola. In my opinion, most of the Sodastream Flavors tend to resemble the Coca-Cola ® version with a few exceptions.
For those that are not fans of Splenda ® & Acesulfame K who are looking for a more natural low calorie soda, you shouldn’t have to wait too long. Sodastream recently announced a new line of Stevia Sweetened Sodastream Flavors to be released this summer. If you are not a fan of artificial sweeteners at all, you may want to consider Sodastream Sparkling Naturals as an all-natural alternative or begin making your own soda using homemade soda recipes where you control all the ingredients.
