So I have seen these things in store for a very long time. Since I got my SodaStream soda maker just over a year ago, I really didn’t think that this would be a product I would need. But alas I was wrong. Sure I make my own soda at home, but I sometimes forget that during social gatherings, BBQ’s, and even a quick stop at a convenience store while on the road, or even camping these would be a huge help.
My package came with 12 Bottle Tops, in a wide variety of colors. So the first thing I’m going to say is how great it is because I no longer get my soda confused with someone else’s. So that’s a huge plus.
Then I’m going to point out that at just about any outdoor setting you are going to have insects or bugs. From bees to ants they always want to climb in open cans to the sticky sweet deliciousness of my beverage. With Bottle Tops, I don’t even have to worry that if I turn my back I might unsuspectingly drink any 6 legged creatures. Yuck. That gives me the heebie jeebies just thinking about it. Luckily this has never happened to me that I can recall, but I have known a few people who have experienced such a horrible thing. You can’t imagine how glad I was when I bought these just in time for camping this past summer. I only wish these had been invented back when I was a kid when we went camping every summer. I ALWAYS remember finding bees in my soda can, and I always remember inspecting my cans often.
This past summer my husband and I were fortunate enough to be able to purchase a more gas efficient vehicle, and since doing so, we spent nearly every weekend in August/September taking rather lengthy road trips. For those long drives we were always sure to stop as a gas station or grocery store to load up on sodas and energy drinks which as we all know, don’t travel well and often spill. So again Bottle Tops solved yet another problem for us. Not to mention that since they have such a great seal, if I happened to take a short nap while on the road my drink was still carbonated as ever when I resumed drinking it. There is nothing I hate more than soda that has gone flat. YUCK
Anyways, I’m going to jump right to the bottom line, this is an ingenious product and I LOVE it. We love them so much I almost always keep some in my purse or car just in case.
Two quick things I want to be sure to mention, is that you don't want to accidentally put the Bottle Top on your beverage can before opening, because they are incredibly difficult to remove at that point. And In case you dont read the instructions for some reason, I just wanted to mention, that they can be somewhat difficult to remove since they fit so snugly, that when you are finished there is a little trick to removing them. You want to be sure you squeeze the can as you pop off the top. After watching the infomercial, its almost not even noticeable that the actress does this, but because i was looking for it, i could tell.
