In my many experiences with K-A, I have found mixes that taste like
some of the discontinued flavors.
Purplesaurus Rex: Olanin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
1.5 scoops Grape
2.5 scoops Lemonade
Sunshine Punch: Olanin (email@example.com)
2 Scoops Orange
2 Scoops Lemonade
Sharkleberry Fin: Donovan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
1/2 tsp of Lemonade(unsweetened)
1/2 tsp of Orange(unsweetened)
1/2 tsp of Strawberry(unsweetened)
1 Cup of sugar(use the full cup of sugar on this, or it will be tart)
1/2 gallon of water as usual
Scary Blackberry(?): (Michael S. Cooper <email@example.com>)
Just a note to let you all know I mixed up my own Scary Blackberry
tonight, just a little different than the recipe given by Kraft.
I actually mixed grape, cherry, and tropical punch and three (3!) cups
of sugar together in a three quart pitcher (That's double-strength,
guys!) and then diluted it accordingly into my storage pitchers.
For the record, I can't say it tastes exactly like Scary Blackberry,
because I've never had any. We don't seem to get it down here in Dallas,
or Texas for that matter. I will say that it tastes *exactly* like a mix
of those three flavors, with the tropical punch flavor being most
dominant. The color, however, is a great Halloween blood reddish-purple.
Cheap Imitations of lost flavors:
There are also cheap imitations of lost Kool-Aid Flavors still
available on the market. Susan Hoover (71061.2052@CompuServe.COM)
Drink Aid (an American imitationsof Kool-Aid) has the following flavors
which approximate discontinued flavors:
Kangablue Brew - this is Great Bluedini in disguise; it even
starts out green and changes to blue
Purple Mania - this is a grape / lemonade mix; Its their version of
Boppin' Redbird - god knows; this is a red drink that tastes
kind of like raspberry-cherry-fruit punch (Rock-a-dile Red)
