Keep Cool With Kool-Aid

Think back to when you were a kid. What did you drink? Let me give you a hint: it stained your mouth and was filled with sugar! Kool-Aid was invented in Hastings, Nebraska by Edwin Perkins. He spent his time in his mother’s kitchen experimenting with different products and looking for a way to mass distribute Fruit Smack, the flavored syrup he invented, without the mess and cost of shipping liquid. As a result, he created Kool-Aid, a powdered drink substance that was easy to make and even easier to transport. Though Perkins died in the mid-1970s, his legacy lived on to become a multibillion dollar empire.
