People from all around the world, especially from the USA, have had a long relationship with soda, pop, or whatever you choose to call it. Especially in the case of the U.S., soda (we prefer the former) has been the most popular drink for many years, even outrunning water in some areas (yes, seriously). And while there are companies specialized in producing sparkling beverages like The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) and PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE:PEP), whose brands are leaders of their respective marketplace, there is one company that has conquered this market from another angle.
This company is Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA). Headquartered in Israel, SodaStream is specialized in production of soda-making machines as well as a large range of flavors.
Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA)’s product is perfect for those who enjoy a cold sparkling beverage every day, while avoiding the environmental impact that throwaway plastic bottles inherently produce. The company itself has a variety of re-usable bottles for its machines, which can be used for up to two years.

So, Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA), with its machines, has found a niche on the market of beverages and has achieved impressive results, despite the fact that it is far behind the aforementioned PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE:PEP) and The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO).
The popularity of Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) is reflected in its financial results as well. For the first quarter of 2013, the company reported revenue of $117.6 million and net income of $12.1 million. These figures increased on the year by 34% and 20% respectively, the company said in a statement.
But let’s get back to Sodastream International Ltd (NASDAQ:SODA) flavors, because this is what makes this product more attractive to its customers. A soda maker, aside from giving sparkles to the water, gives the possibility to pick a flavor from a wide range of about 60 syrups. In this way, another plus for SodaStream is its flavors, which can satisfy every customer. And one more ball in SodaStream’s basket is cost efficiency.
With this in mind, we have picked the ten most popular SodaStream flavors. Even though many of them are regular flavors, the company also offers diet-based alternatives, particularly for special needs.
Let’s take a look at the list.
