  1. Hmmm, changing color Kool Aid sounds trippy! Or does that just mean that the color of the fluid is different than the color of the powder?

    1. If memory serves, it starts out as a green powder and turns to blue in liquid? Or starts out as blue powder and turns to green.

      1. Well that’s kind of boring. They should make some with different specific gravities like a lava lamp Kool Aid, that would be killer!

      1. PurpleRex can still be made, but you have to do a double batch. it’s 1 grape + 1 lemonade packet = 2x serving of rex.

    1. I’ve seen Green Apple around, but I haven’t picked any up. Doesn’t sound that appetizing to me. As Jones Soda, sure, but not so much with the Kool-Aid.

      I did see Great Bluedini and Purplesaurus Rex yesterday at Meijer, so I got a few packs of those. Didn’t see the other two flavors, though. I’ll have to keep an eye out. (I drink far too much Kool-Aid.)

  2. I wish they would say how long they’ll be out and when they’ll be on the East Coast. Went to 2 Walmarts (exclusive to them) and nothing. Not even Sharkleberry Fin. I want a lot of each and have no desire to pay 5x the value (at the least!) on eBay.

  3. What!! PURPLESAURUS REX is back!!?? You have made my week!

    Off to the grocery store . . . or can I buy a crate on Amazon?

  4. I bought some Sharkleberry Fin yesterday at a Sun Fresh in Kansas City yesterday! I didn’t see any of these other throwback flavors though. I was really looking for Pink Swimmingo, but the store was either out, or never got the flavor in.

  5. I’m in Danville, Va. I Usually find them flavors at Dan Valley Market. Lately they’ve been telling me they can’t order them back. So if that’s the case I have several flavors I would like to have, is it a way I can order them? If so please notify me!!!!!!
