    Does anyone on here drink kombucha? I've seen a huge trend in grocery stores etc.. in the last few years.

    I love the stuff. Since I don't drink pop or really anything besides water, it gives me a flavorful, fizzy, and healthy option. They are alkalizing and full of B vitamins. So much energy... Plus the probiotics can't hurt! But once you're addicted you buy them like crazy and they are quite costly.. icon_eek.gif

    Mmm, I was pretty addicted at one point, but now I just buy them here and there as a treat. They are pretty expensive and it's easy to overdo them.

    But a few months ago, the best brand (G.T.'s Kombucha) got pulled from the shelves in Illinois for having too much alcohol in it, I think, and now it hasn't been available. I miss it.... the other brands just don't compare. icon_sad.gif

    I make my own. It costs me about $4 a month maybe. It's quite simple and unpasteurized is better. I'm so glad there are other people out there that have actually heard of it.

    Love the stuff. Don't drink soda so makes a good drink here and there. Been meaning to get a kit to make my own since it is so goddamn expensive at the stores.

    Never tried it.

    However there is a low volume of alcohol, resulting in the State of Michigan putting a temporary hold on sales in August and looking into requiring a liquor license to sell it as it ferments as it sits. Not sure where is stands currently.
