Remember When They Tried to Make Kool-Aid and Milk a Thing? [VIDEO]
Did you ever try Kool-Aid and milk? If you grew up in the 1990s in South Louisiana, you saw this commercial a hundred million times, and maybe you even convinced your mom to let you try it.
I have to admit, I couldn't bring myself to do it. I wasn't a big milk drinker, and the idea of dumping a pack of Tropical Punch Kool-Aid into the mix just didn't seem like a great idea. Plus, I was a pretty jaded kid -- I knew that this ad was just a ruse to try to get me to drink more milk. I wasn't having any of that. The Kool-Aid Man and a cow would NEVER dance together!
Did you ever try it out? I've never heard good reviews.
And who was this kid? What's he doing now? I hope he hasn't moved on to the harder stuff ... like Red Bull and yogurt.
Anyway, as 2014 ends, I thought I'd share something that made us all feel old. And if you're too young to remember this, maybe you're better off.
