Many youths, myself included, will be celebrating Halloween at home this year to steer clear of this malicious pandemic. 

To help ease the melancholic mindset of staying in this Halloween, Kool-Aid has launched a few Halloween-inspired items to celebrate the holiday, including Kool-Aid flavored Popping Candy

Yep, imagine the textural sensations of popping candy paired with your favorite Kool-Aid flavors. 

You can also find new Kool-Aid Ghoul-Aid Jammers, think Capri Suns filled with Kool-Aid, and Kool-Aid Man Halloween costumes to complete the seasonal vibes all at

Hope everyone has a safe, and spooky Halloween this year. Might take this opportunity to start up on The Haunting of Bly Manor.


Man’s Fridge Has a Different Drink for Every Type of Girl He Brings Over [WATCH]


This guy had swag before swag was a “thing.” The meticulous arrangement of his refrigerator is borderline genius as he has planned out every situation in which he’d have to satisfy the craving of every thirsty girl he brings over to his place.

Whether it’s Vitamin Water for girls who like to stay fit, or the Snapples for the “suburban chicks,” he keeps his fridge stocked to the very back with a variety of drinks and flavors.

As he explains his thinking behind every drink in his arsenal, you can hear the seriousness in his voice. This is not a game for him, it’s real life strategy. This was way back in 2008, too. Back when everyone was finding out who Barrack Obama and Katy Perry were, this guy was perfecting his pimp game. He even has freeze pops for girls who go over with their kids.

Check out the blueprint for yourself and adjust your fridge game accordingly.


Kool-Aid Man Undergoes Makeover to Show Off His Sensitive Side


The red pitcher who spent most of the past decade busting down walls and booming out his signature “OH YEAH” will be undergoing a dramatic makeover as part of the relaunch of Kool-Aid’s liquid mix. Kool-Aid’s senior brand manager expressed concern that the Kool-Aid mascot “said things here and there [but] really didn’t have a developed personality,” and decided to make the mascot a bit more relatable.

Kool-Aid’s new commercial spots explain that his life isn’t all “cherry and sweetness” and focus on the pitcher’s morning routine, “I put my pants on one leg at a time […] except my pants are 22 different flavors.”

The emphasis on a giant red pitcher’s clothing choices is definitely moving Kool-Aid in a different direction, but don’t worry — Kool Aid Man still busts down his front door on the way to work. OH YEAH, indeed.

Here’s How To Make ‘Trap Champagne’ Using Dom Perignon, Pickles & Kool-Aid [Lolz]

Done Right: Trap Champagne

I always had a fascination with hood drinks. From walking down alleys on E. Grand Ave. as a kid, finding empty 40 oz. bottles and chuckin’ them at walls, to ordering my first Incredible Hulk at Club Blue, CRUNK juices set the pace for any night out. It’s time to give back to the hood what I so excessively guzzled away. Trap Champagne a.k.a. T-Pain, is a celebratory drink for all of life’s STRUGGLES.

Done Right: Trap Champagne

Kool-aid simple syrup should be at hands reach at errry bar.  I mean, just  imagine your childhood fav flavor enhancing cocktails. Tongues telling no lies: grape, cherry, lemon-lime, orange.

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 a packet of Kool-Aid Cherry

In a small pot, boil the water then slowly add the sugar while whisking. Turn off the heat and continue to stir until the sugar dissolves. Then add the Kool-Aid and stir until dissolved. Set aside to cool.

Done Right: Trap Champagne

Kosher Dill pickles for a un-Kosher practice. These spears bring the perfect amount of sourness, saving it from being called a “fruity drink.” Cut into 1/4 in. pieces so they can continue their journey as a TRAP STAR

Done Right: Trap Champagne

It’s time to get trappy mane. With the remaining Kool-Aid, portion the powder so that it can be rolled with the pickle slices.

Amex Black cards = Yayo. Public library cards = Kool-Aid. Gotta’ craw before you baaaalllll


Time to dust your pickle. As soon as it hits the dry powder, it will transform to vivid red like a Phoenix rising from the ashes. I suggest that once rolled, you should let it rest so that the powder can work its magic through the spear. You might of seen something like this when full-sour pickles are brined in a Kool-Aid bath. Thank you M.I.crooked letter crooked letter I. crooked letter crooked letter I. hump-back hump-back I


Tell-tale signs of an addict. Beware of the effects of a heavy user. Your fingertips will be stained the color of the Kool-Aid, sooooo better use some protection.


Dom Perignon, your vintage is never too old to try something new! Pour chilled bubblies into a chilled champagne flute. Add 1/4 oz of pickle juice then 1/2 oz of Kool-Aid simple syrup. Watch how the sizzurp transforms this drank. Are you fiending now?


Finish off the glass with a chunk of Kool-Aid pickle as a garnish. At first sip, the champagne brut comes through then you are slowly introduced to the brininess, but not too sour, of pickle juice. At last, a sweet sour send off of cherry Kool-Aid as you finish off the Trap Champagne.

So let’s all raise a glass to the ass-holes, let’s all toast to Poppin’ bottles, put supermodels in cabs, and let’s all agree that ‘May all our pain be champagne’. Jeezey and Gucci Mane, ya’ll swash the beef and pour it up over some Trap Champagne.


There Are Over 20,000 Twinkie-Related Sales Being Attempted on Ebay

You really think someone’s going to buy your Twinkie for $15 million, huh? I’m sure Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are trying to outbid each other as I write this, and that free shipping surely makes it more enticing.

If I was a ridiculously rich dude, I’d already have a vault filled with the delicious cream-filled sponges. Hell, I’d go Scrooge McDuck and dive into a pool of Twinkies every day.

That $15 million box of Twinkies better be one of the first ever made, better be purified in the waters of Lake Minnetonka, signed by the cast of Zombieland, and come with an alternate ending to Magic Mike where Channing Tatum takes off a mask and reveals that he is really Twinkie The Kid.

Sure they aren’t all selling for this much, but it’s still crazy to think that there are currently over 20 thousand Twinkie-related sales being attempted on eBay.

Is it not too soon for the crazy Hostess snack selling, especially since it is likely that someone will buy Hostess Brand Inc. and keep the snacks in tact?

What am I talking about, of course it’s not too soon to try to make a quick dollar. A better question might be, ‘Is it not too soon for your gullible online-shopping self to be buying them for $50 a pop?’

Hostess made an estimated $2.5 billion a year in revenue, had been around for over 80 years and just made people go nuts enough to wipe out store shelves. So I’m going to go out on a limb and agree with the notion that they’ll be back sooner than you think.

I didn’t exactly raid any stores like a lot of people did, but I did buy a couple boxes of Zingers just in case I want to conduct a ceremony of sacrifice to the snack gods, as me and a few close friends have some Zingers and Kool-Aid for one last time. But my intentions were not to do something completely insane like try and sell them for millions of dollars online.

They’re just sponge cakes. You can’t even find a mint condition, Babe Ruth rookie card selling for over $1 million, so I don’t think anyone is going to spend that much on Twinkies.

It’s discouraging to see how quickly we blow things out of proportion. Whether it’s the next online craze, the Mayan end-of-the-world theories, or even ‘Twinkie Apocalypse,’ it’s never a bad idea to take a deep breath and just wait things out.

[VIDEO] The Kool-Aid Rap

Let the sweet juices of powder and water mixture flow through you. The dudes of the 16BitBoys have put together a Kool-Aid rap for the ages. Everything from the craving stages, to sliding through the kitchen in your socks out of pure giddiness, and those courageous folks who mix flavor packets. Hmm…I’m getting thirsty just thinking about it!



Verse One
I drink Kool-Aid
Not cause I’m black, cause it’s delicious
All of these other forms of hydration lose my interest.
I get so excited when I go to pour a glass,
Its like I’m missin overflowin it by inches
I’m whipping something like a chemist when I’m stirring it up
Because its always more than one flavor inhabiting my cup.

Verse Two
I take the, Strawberry, I mix it with the Cherry,
Be careful not to inhale any of the flavor dust (Pause)
Plus, invisible’s delightful (Yo mix that with the Lime Green)
My brother that’s insightful
Slide across the kitchen in my socks like Micheal
And pour a big cup, leaving a swallow just to spite you
Don’t worry why my mustache is light blue
Over the black cherry I will fight you
The purple cause rex was kinda hype too
If you aint figured by now I kinda like juice.

Here’s a quick look at the making of this year’s Fried Kool-Aid, made by making a batter out of the Kool-Aid, combining the refreshing summer drink with flour and water before dunking it in hot oil:

Craving: Kool-Aid


I woke up 5 minutes ago and the first thing that popped in my head, other than the feeling of how hot it is outside was how much I really want some Kool-Aid right now! Therefore upon finishing this I’m going to the store to get some, probably grape, maybe watermelon and mix it up with a ton of sugar. Do you remember getting really excited as a kid when your mom would make this stuff? Ya I don’t because my mother wouldn’t ever make it for me, so now I get to go crazy.
