Stock Up Alert: Kool-Aid Packets

These unsweetened Kool-aid packets usually sell for 20 cents each, but this week they are 10 cents each at Kroger. Enjoy the 50% savings year round.

Kroger (see bottom for affiliated stores) runs this special once a year. I've used these packets as far as three years past expiration without ANY problems. Store in a quart mason jar for long term storage, with moisture being the main problem. Black Cherry, one of my favorites, is pure bliss after hitting a cache after a few weeks of backpacking!

Besides, isn't this the reason we have a deep pantry? Stock up at the absolute lowest price, and save money.

  1. Yep...can't go wrong with kool aid. Besides I can control the amount of sugar that goes in to it. unlike store bought pre-packaged drinks..

    1. Very true.

      Kool-aid the original "throw back" drink from our youth.

  2. This is also a very good idea to have should you have an emergency where you must make your own rehydration solution, and you need to flavor it. The orange, in particular, works very well for that.
    Thanks for the heads up on the special !

    1. Do you have a favorite recipe for rehydration?

  3. Thanks for the heads up, K!
