The original Nespresso Pods are around $0.85–1$1.25. These are $0.50 apiece, so it just comes down to if you want to save some money. I used only 1 of the pods and put aside the box because I did not quite like the taste. They're a bit of acidic bitterness to these and are not very smooth. I will not be buying them again but for someone with a Nespresso machine, I suggest you buy one box and try them, if you love them, then you have a winner on hand, if you don't like them, all you lose is $10 and either way, you can find ways of using them.
