Who didn't grow up with Kool-aid?
The drink all kids knew and loved.
Open a packet or plastic funny shaped container, pour it in a pitcher, and add water and/or sugar.
And so good.
Of course, Mom never used the full amount of sugar the directions called for. She thought it was much too sweet.
But, she never used the full amount of chocolate chips in the cookies either. That was also too much.
Yes, life was rough.
Kool-aid started out with the normal flavors.
Lime, cherry, strawberry, grape, lemonade, black cherry(my personal favorite).
Next came pink lemonade.
Followed by fruit punch.
Sometime in the 90's or late 80's they started selling the funky little bottles of prepackaged Kool-aid.
They were supposed to be convenient to take with you- on the go.
Problem was, the top didn't always want to just twist off.
Make sure you have scissors handy- on the go.
Around that same time, you got the funky flavors.
Strawberry-kiwi, raspberry lemonade, berry flavor, strawberry lemonade, and the flavors that look like one flavor, but taste like another.
Just try and find the NORMAL flavors.
It is not easy to do.
When I grew up, all the neighborhood kids used to come over to play and we went through so much Kool-aid.
When we went down to Grandma M.'s, we had Kool-aid to drink. Made in a metal pitcher and drank out of metal glasses, it tasted a little different.
When we went to Grandma B.'s we got Kool-aid. She always made it in a certain glass pitcher. It was known as the Kool-aid pitcher.
I think I drank more Kool-aid than anything else.
How bout you?
Did you grow up drinking Kool-aid?
