Mr Kool wants a Kooler Image

newkoolaid152way“Kraft Foods has decided that the pitcher pitchman needs a new look that plays up his “undeniably fun personality.”

And, of course, he has a Facebook page.

“It seems that formerly rather terse Kool-Aid Man (a guy in a costume) will now be a bit of a chatterbox in his ad spots. In one, for example, he’ll be seen thinking about which mix he should “wear” and saying that, “I put my pants on one leg at a time. Except my pants are 22 different flavors. I’ve got grape pants, I’ve got watermelon pants.”‘

SO MANY USES FOR KOOL-AID now then when I was a child.

My personal favorite:

Sour Gummy Worms

  • 4 packages of Gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold Distilled water
  • 1/2 cup flavored beverage
  • 5-10 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 full packet of unsweetened Kool-Aid (color and flavor of your choice)
    • If you want dual colored Gummy Worms use half of one flavor, half of another)
      • Heat up the gelatin and beverage of choice to a boil in a large saucepan. Remove from heat.
      • Stir in the sugar depending on your taste (sour or sweet) and then add the kool aid.
      • The liquid will start to gel after stirring about 100 beats.
      • Let sit for 5 minutes.
      • Store in the fridge or freezer overnight.
      • Wake up and eat delicious Gummy Worms for breakfast

  1. I shall never eat anything gelatinous due to childhood trauma — my mother’s jello salads. She mixed veggies into the jello as it was beginning to set. She used red (which I think was strawberry — who can tell — or green. Then, for me the gross bit, veggies like carrots, green beans, peas, etc. maybe even some canned fruit. It all went into a glass bowl (sometimes set inside a bigger bowl of ice) and into the fridge. There was no unveiling where the bowl is inverted and the jello emerges as some sort stuff space aliens might leave behind. I remember, finally, I reached the age I could refuse jello salad (which made my father happy since Mom then only made it for herself and special occasions.
    Also get the cringes from jello because I’ve used it to try and get down as much x-prep for digestive tests (hid the taste only some what.)
    I’ll pass the recipe and link onto my nieces and nephew — they all have kids just the right age to help produce the worms — or at least old enough to pick the flavo(u)rs.

  2. I don’t understand how the Kool-Ade turns into worms. Magic? No worries though because I will never make them. When I was a kid we had a well and the water tasted horrible. My Mom would make Kool-Aid every once in a while, probably because it was cheaper than milk, and we all hated it. The grape and root beer flavors were especially disgusting. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
