Bloke Reveals His Ingenuous Goon And SodaStream Hack And Says It's Delicious
In the latest ingenious hack to hit social media, a bloke who goes by the name of Mashed Shroom on Reddit has revealed he puts his Fruity Lexia boxed wine in his Soda Stream to create instant and cheap sparkling wine.
It's not as simple as just filling the bottle with your favourite box of plonk and hitting 'Go', however. You have to be careful with what you're doing.
Mashed Shroom wrote: "You gotta be a bit cagey with the CO2 pumps to prevent explosion.
"The number one problem with the legendary goon-sack is it cannot handle the pressure of a carbonated beverage."
When asked what he thought of his beautiful creation, we replied with: "Give it a go c**t, slow and steady, no explosions. Works a treat! Worth it."
I mean, when you put it like that, it's difficult not to go to the closest bottle and give it a try at home.
You can pretty much put anything that is decently liquidy into a Soda Stream-like machine and create a bubbly drink. I say 'pretty much' because people would try and make bubbly chocolate ice-cream sauce and it would end in tears.
If you're not a fan of the humble goon sack then you're more than welcome to chuck your expensive bottle of plonk into the machine and see how it goes. Hell, even give your red wine collection a cheeky spritz and see if it tastes any better.
An Aussie mum posted another goon-related hack last year that went absolutely viral.
The Aussie woman uploaded a shot of some Aldi boxed wine and a bottle of Tempus Two to the Mums Who Budget and Save Facebook group.
She wrote: "You may think you are looking at a cheap cask of Aldi wine ($8.60 or so) and a lovely full bottle of Tempus Two.
"But you're not. It's a cheap cask of Aldi wine and an empty bottle of Tempus Two filled with cheap Aldi wine. Pour it into a nice glass and you and whoever else you're sharing with won't know the difference.
"I even had someone comment the other day on what a nice drop it was. Presentation can make all the difference and save you a fortune if you like a quaff of vino."
Look, it's not the most ground-breaking or technical method for getting people to appreciate cheaper wine, but if she says that it's worked then who are we to question her.
