mr0x: Wow. Scarlett Johansson must be going through some hard times that she has to whore herself out to a soda company.


She was in the biggest movie of the year in 2012, Is in a critically acclaimed role in a best picture nominee this year, is in one of the biggest movies of 2014 AND 2015.

This likely was a shoot lasting a few hours, in return she likely got at least six figures.

Yeah, hard times.

Critch: Mikey1969: What bullshiat. Coke and Pepsi can mention each other and show their competitors' products in their own ads, though... Fark them, and fark the Super Bowl pussies.

That being said, that SodaStream tastes like ass, anyway, so this is probably in all of our best interests.

Someone didn't read the comments.


Why? Was there a comment that told me that it didn't in fact taste like ass? Or is there one that claims that Pepsi and Coke don't use each other's products in their ads?

Streisand effect. More people will see it and talk about it now than if it had been on during the Super Bowl and had been ignored by more than half the viewers getting more food and beer or taking a leak. And they're getting this at commercial cost, they don't even have to pay millions for a half-minute.

Whichever ad agency came up with this approach was genius. If we were only half as smart we'd be rich beyond our wildest dreams.

LesserEvil: "Bulls hit.

The reason it's "banned" is because SodaStream isn't buying any airtime and playing up a fake story about it being "banned" and getting a ton of publicity for it."


kombi: "Ya BS. There have been stories for the last couple of weeks about this. Just be honest. Has nothing to do with coke or Pepsi."



Except they are, and it does: "A censored version of the ad with Scarlett Johansson will therefore appear on game day, and will exclude this mention of competitors"

Obligatory.

img.fark.net

Scarlett is a peach. Like when you eat a peach that is so ripe you can push your thumb through the skin. The juice runs down your chin and drips onto your chest, and the place in between your fingers gets so sticky you have trouble separating them. The next day, even after you wash your hands, you can still smell the sweet juice on your skin and, if no one is watching, you lick your fingers and the memory of that sweet fruit on your tongue floods back. Scarlett is like that.

gweilo8888: Yeah, I don't believe this story for one millisecond, mostly because every Sodastream I've ever tried tasted like ass. And not the good ass, either. Putrid, festering ass that's been left out in the sweaty sunshine for a week. Blue cheese ass.

It's like this:

* Real soda
*
* Generic soda
*
*
* Flat generic soda that's had a homeless guy's nutsack dipped in it
*
*
* Sodastream


You DO realize you can use ANY flavored syrup and don't have to buy SodaStream's primary line of syrups, don't you?

The primary SodaStream syrups include Sucralose (Splenda) which makes them taste icky to those of us who don't like sugar substitutes. However, SodaStream makes another line of syrups that are sweetened with cane sugar, and those are excellent. If you get the mix right, and the fizz right, it tastes a lot like Coke or, at the very least, RC. If you want it to be more like Pepsi you could always add 25% more syrup, I suppose. Either way, I'm quite fond of the cane sugar cola from SodaStream.

Torani makes a line of syrups that are excellent and work great with SodaStream. Their root beer is excellent, and you can mix flavors. Plus, they make a surprisingly good bacon-flavored syrup, which means bacon soda, my friend... Bacon soda.

However, if you're not experimental, you can always go to Sam's Club or Costco and buy Bag-in-Box cases of actual Coke or RC syrups. A 1-gallon box of RC syrup will go a LONG way, and costs in the neighborhood of $20. Put the syrup into pump bottles, and you can make RC cola all day long, however sweet you want it. The same goes for all the other flavors from both companies.

So your problem isn't that you don't like SodaStream... It's that you were never given a decent drink from one, and that you didn't think about all the possibilities if you just put a little effort to it.


TOSViolation: I am very disappoint in this product.  I had this image in my mind of it working differently.  Apparently, you could achieve the same effect with a bottle of seltzer water and any random flavoring to add to it.


Well, yes. It carbonates ordinary tap water, though, so you don't need to buy multiple bottles of seltzer water to keep on hand (and it isn't salted or flavored like some seltzers), and it can be as fizzy as you want. It's also convenient. It doesn't require power, so it can sit on your bar or kitchen counter wherever you need it, and it takes up very little space. When you want a soda, you carbonate a bottle of water, add any flavor you want, and it's a fresh drink without HFCS, and made exactly the way you want it. Want a strawberry-banana soda? It's yours. Want a chocolate cola? It's yours. Want a root beer with a hint of vanilla creme? It's yours.

But if you were thinking of carbonating orange juice or something..? Well, you really shouldn't because the sugars in those sorts of things will cause a bit of an explosion or overflow. Instead, you carbonate your water extra-fizzy, and then mix with juices to your liking.

Some people have successfully carbonated wine to make a champagne-like drink. It's not recommended, but the lower the sugar content, the more likely it will be a success.

Soda Club has been around for a long time in Europe, and they've been doing OK in America since they got here. I only recently got one out of curiosity, but I have to say I love it. I drink a lot of cola, and I've switched to the sugar cane cola from SodaStream. Yeah, I hate the regular line of syrups from them, with the sucralose, but the sugar cane stuff is the game-changer. I'm not drinking a ton of HFCS anymore, and the drink is crisp and light, instead of feeling heavy and sickly sweet.

Now, SodaStream isn't a huge money-saver unless you pick up an adapter to use a standard CO2 tank with it, because their proprietary tank refill fees are a bit price-gougey, but once you get an adapter you can even set them up with an under-the-counter CO2 line and a 20 pound tank, and have the equivalent of a restaurant fountain. Line up your flavored syrups on the bar, and make your guests and yourself any flavored drink they.

I'm happy with my SodaStream. I'd be happier if they didn't have their proprietary CO2 tanks, and if the sugar cane sweetened flavorings weren't more expensive than the sucralose-based flavorings, but the nice thing about it is that I have all sorts of options. There are several companies making syrups, and refilling a tank only costs me $4 with the modifications I made. So I spend less on drinks in the long run, and they're better for me.

Just a bit of advice for anyone considering a SodaStream: The more expensive models aren't all that worth it. The cheapest one (Jet) does the same job, with the same basic mechanism as all the others, and actually takes the larger CO2 tanks, while most of the higher-end models only accept the smaller tanks, and the LED displays or other features they offer don't really change the end result or make it any more convenient. The only exception is the really high end ones that will carbonate in a glass carafe, so they're more elegant for bar use.

Personally, I think the thing is one of the best investments I've made. As long as you're a little creative, it can be as good as you need it to be.

No, that was also used. As was the colloquial  tampon tea, and other quite vulgar euphemisms.Sailors at sea have a lot of time to make up sayings for seeing someone naked and doing the nasty. Creativity was our hallmark. The eating a bucket of shiat was a mild one, but it was short and to the point. There were some that went on for five minutes before it got to the point.

As I said in the previous post, you can go to Sam's Club or Costco and get RC syrup by the gallon. If you don't want to go for SodaStream, you could always buy seltzer or soda water and flavor it. You can order RC syrup online at either store's website, and with Sam's (don't know about Costco) you don't have to be a member to order online.

I have one, which I requested for my birthday. Mind you I only use the orange/berry/lemon-lime flavored essences, not the regular 'soda' flavors, but I used it all the goddamn time until the CO2 canister ran out. The only reason I'm stuck in a non-carbonated hell right now is because I live in the middle of nowhere and once the major shippers got wind of exactly what was in those canisters, they refused carry them. Stupid Walmart is completely unreliable for replacing it so I'm waiting until I move, at this point.
