I have a ton of fond memories of growing up in the ’90s.
From the fashion and music to the movies (“Titanic” will forever be my favorite) and accessories, the fact that we all made it out without Jelly sandals stuck to our feet and our hair tangled in scrunchies is honestly pretty impressive.
Next to my Tamagotchi, another favorite was my clear phone. You know the ones: you could see all the parts inside and pretend you knew what they did and were cool enough to have a phone in your room that looked that, er, fashionable.
Mind you, mine was not plugged in because I was a child, not a teenager, but I 100% had one and definitely pretended to be making important phone calls on it.
(For the record, you can still find these for sale online on sites like Etsy!)
We’ve had to move from clear phones to iPhones in the last two decades, but there’s a new, more grown-up product that is throwing us back to the ’90s … and filling a hole in our hearts we probably didn’t realize was there until now.
SodaStream’s new, limited-edition soda maker is not only transparent and neon, but is also only $90 to celebrate, you guessed it, the ’90s! The throwback kit comes with one sparkling water maker, a carbonating cylinder and a 1-liter bottle and a three-year warranty. It’s also shipping for free!
Tori Spelling, herself an icon of that great decade, teamed up with SodaStream for the new product, which is called the Tori. It aims to not bring back one trend from the ’90s: single-use plastics.
“Some of my favorite memories, trends and inspiration comes from the 90’s,” Spelling said in a press release. “I’m thrilled to have partnered up with SodaStream to create this stylish, ’90s-‘inspired product with the higher purpose of raising awareness to the issue of single-use plastics waste.”
If you’re not familiar with SodaStream, the brand’s machines create soda right in your own kitchen, so you don’t have to buy it at the store and, therefore, it can eliminate a ton of plastic from the world that’s created by typical drink bottles.
The new ’90s-inspired machine is selling out quickly, so if it’s already sold out when you go to buy it, you can get one in black for the same price. And let’s hope SodaStream will make more Toris so we can all grab one!
Have you tried a soda maker at home?
