The other day, while strolling the aisles of my local Costco, I spotted a new item by one of my favorite brands: Suja. What’d I find? Mini bottles of booch! For those who are unfamiliar, booch is an adorable nickname for kombucha, which is a probiotic-rich fermented drink that is shown to support gut health and immune system health (in most individuals).

Most bottles of kombucha come in larger sizes, so I was intrigued to see these little guys. (I found them in one of the refrigerated aisles with the milk and the juices.) Here’s why I think they’re so great.

1. The mini size is perfect.

Each box of mini booches comes with a dozen 8.5-ounce bottles. While most other kombucha bottles on the market are 16 ounces, I firmly believe that’s too much booch! Or rather, 8.5 ounces is just right — especially if you’re new to kombucha. This fizzy drink is a powerful probiotic aid, so if you’re not used to it, too much could lead to an upset stomach. Even if you’ve been drinking it for a while, like I have, you’ll find that the size is just right for on-the-go enjoyment. Anything larger and it gets too warm or too jostled in your bag. (Do not shake your kombucha of any size!)

2. They’re a total bargain.

This is the most cost-effective kombucha I’ve ever seen. Coming in at just $15.49 for 12 bottles, it’s a steal of a deal compared to buying individual bottles, which are usually at least $4 each. At that price, you’re paying 25 cents per ounce, but these Costco mini bottles come to around 15 cents per ounce.

3. It’s a great way to try a few flavors.

Costco is not usually the place to try something. (Don’t like it and you’re stuck with a case of wasted food.) But I don’t think that’s true in this scenario. This case comes with apple, ginger lemon, and mixed berry — four of each. So you get to try a few things without making a huge commitment. And each bottle features different adaptogens (see: What are Adaptogens?) said to help with energy and stress support.
