Kool-Aid – Kool-Aid Smiles

1970s, Drinks, Food 2 942

Kool-Aid has powered the past 3 or 4 generations of children with sugary flavored goodness. And it was good. It’s the tastiest cheap drink around, and you were either drinking it or selling cups of it on the sidewalk for a nickel or a dime a cup.

Enter the Kool-Aid man – a giant, smiling punch bowl with a tendency to break through walls and a happy jingle. Thirst is definitely on the run for these kids – in the form of little packets of flavor and dye.

    Notice the actor playing the painter on the left at 0:13 is Herb Edelstein, probably best known as Stan Zbornak on “The Golden Girls”.
