Limeade or Margarita Mix

So in a never ending quest to save money, I present to you:
FROZEN LIME ADE VS FROZEN MARGARITA MIX

First of all:

001
Frozen Lime Ade
Cost: 89 cents for six ounces or about 15 cents an ounce.


Ingredients:
004
Sweeteners (high fructose corn syrup, sugar), pure filtered water, concentrated lime juice, lime pulp, natural flavors

It is produced for the Coca Cola Company.

Secondly:
002
Frozen Margarita Mix
Cost $3.87 for ten ounces or 39 cents an ounce.

Ingredients:
003
Water, sweeteners (high fructose corn syrup, sugar), concentrated lime juice, lime and lemon pulp, natural flavors and green #3.

It is also produced for the Coca Cola Company.

So to make this:

005

you can use frozen lime aid or frozen margarita mix.

I have to say, the marketing is probably why you would buy the frozen margarita mix. To which I tell the large multinational corporation Coca Cola: Well played comrade, well played.
