Can of Coke Costs Up to Six Times more in Israel than in US

Next time you drink a can of Coca Cola in Israel at a kiosk or tourist spot, take into consideration you are swallowing six times more money than you would if you had bought it at an American outlet, such as Walmart, according to a survey conducted by the Globes newspaper.

Americans pay on average 4.5-5.5 shekels for a 1.5 bottle of the carbonated stuff, which works out to about 1.28-$1.56 in the United States. Israelis pay about 40 percent more on average, forking out 6.3-5.4 shekels for the same amount.

The difference in prices for Diet Coke is even higher.

According to Globes, a six-pack of Coca-Cola costs one-third more in Israel than in the United States, and c can costs on average 230% more.

Private sources have reported that the Israeli franchise of Coca-Cola has a profit margin of approximately 70 percent.

    Everything in Israel is expensive. There is no such thing as deals in Israel. Israel needs to introduce free refills on sodas in their resturants.

  2. You shouldn't be drinking Coke (or any cola, for that matter) anyway, especially if you're at high risk for osteoporosis, as the phosporus leaches calcium from your bones.

  3. like my soda stream maker much better than any coke, much less sugar

  4. Evelynne Rifkind Goldman says:

    But it's not the only thing that costs much more than in the US or in the UK for that matter.

  5. Anonymous says:

    There is a mentality in Israel, that anything made in the U.S. is superior to that which is made in Israel. This is Jewish inferiority complex. Hevrah, save your money and buy locally.
