We are big Kombucha fans. (See our whole page on it here.) We drink approximately 15 gallons per week. Quite an operation, and we love it!
Compared to soda, bottled juices or milk, we save a ton of money. But what about Kool-Aid? This used to be our favorite juice because of how inexpensive it was. How does Kombucha compare? We did some measuring and figured out the costs.
- Kool-Aid: $.20 for each package, two needed for a gallon, plus 2 cups of sugar.
- Kombucha: 4 teabags ($.04) + 1 cup sugar to a gallon.
- There is 22-3/4 cups of sugar in a 10# bag of sugar = $.25 per cup of sugar.
Put all this together, and we get:
- A gallon of Kool-Aid: $.90 each
- A gallon of Kombucha: $.29 each
