Show Notes:

In this episode, I review the Kool-Aid Laughin’ Lemonade Fun Fizz. Just like Carlos Mencia, it doesn’t make me laugh. Also, if you haven’t seen the Double Rainbow video (but I think most of you have), then a chunk of this episode won’t make sense. Go watch it! Finally, Read Junk Food Betty’s review of the Partyin’ Punch flavor.

    What happend to second rate snacks site? When I clicked it and it led me to a godaddy site said the site expired?

    Marvo thank u for renewing the site I love this site a lot!

    I haven’t been able to drink Kool-Aid since I was a kid and we visited the American base for the first time and I had one too many of those individual bottle Kool-Aid things back in 1993 or so. I got so sick because my stomach wasn’t used to all of the American gum, sugary cereal etc… I almost vomited on the 5 hour drive home ahaha! Maybe if they made a less sugary one I’d try it, but who knows, the fizzy part of it could either be a good contrast to the sugar, or make me have a flash-back of my being forced to stay out of my office at work while being force-fed alka-seltzer which I can’t stand. Oooh, what if you froze it in Popsicle form??? That would probably be pretty awesome, especially for the summer!

    Yuck…not a kool-aid fan either.

  4. Marvo says:

    @Alek: I guess they’ve decided to shut down or maybe they forgot to renew their domain registration. Sad. :(

    @Fran: Dammit! That’s a good idea. But I drank them all. I had to do two takes of the fizzy bubbles, so I used them all up. Bah!

    @amanda: Oh yeah! I mean…Oh no!

    • Fran says:

      Hmm, ok well, if I ever find these packets I’ll try and freeze them and see what happens. Who knows, they may be actually pretty delicious. I may not enjoy sugary drinks much (though lemonade flavor usually works fine with me) but freeze it in a Popsicle and you could even get me to drink fruit juice as a kid.

  5. Chuck says:

    Did you have clown porn on while you were watching the fizzy bubbles, or would that have been too much stimulation?

  6. I’ve always been a fan of the way you say “written.” I don’t know why.

    Also, Kool-Aid is .. iffy at best, but effervescent (and Aspartame-filled) slightly lemon-flavoured Kool-Aid? No thanks.

    Also, having not seen the Double Rainbow video before (and only hearing people vaguely reference it meme-wise) and seeing your video makes me think that perhaps.. it would have been funnier (and MUCH less creepy) had I viewed the source of the meme first. Maybe I’ll go do that.

    Meg Ryan has got nothing on you!

    That was… disturbing… and oddly compelling all at the same time.

  8. J.R. McQuaid says:

    I’m in the mood for lemonade.

  9. Kelley says:

    I tried the Partyin’ Punch variety of FunFizz and also found that the non-sugar sweeteners left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Also, Marvo, I really wanted to hate you for spoofing “Double Rainbow”, but I actually found myself smirking. So…congratulations.

  10. Marvo says:

    @Chuck: Nah, I’m past clown porn. I’m now into carney porn, less makeup, but more bearded ladies.

    @NobleArc, The Lazy Canadian: I’m a fan of how Canadians spell flavor and favorite.

    @Orchid64: Yup, that’s what I’m trying to do. Disturb and compel.

    @J.R. McQuaid: I’m in the mood for love.

    @Kelley: Yay! No TIB writer rage!

  11. Reviewscout says:

    The still for this video is so awkward. It reeks of Meme positioning.

    It looks like “Fucking magnets, how do they work?” or even “How do I shot web?”

  12. Molly says:

    Your hair looks really frizzy. Are you growing out your afro?

    • Marvo says:

      I am growing out my hair. My last haircut was 13 weeks ago (I usually get one every 4 weeks). My hair probably looks frizzy in the video because of the poor lighting of my green screen.

  13. Amanda says:

    WOW how did I miss this review till now. If you said fizzy bubbles one more time I was SOO going to start touching myself but then I noticed your hair looking awesome and did so anyway… second base so hot
