Who Invented Kool-Aid

Have you ever wondered who invented Kool-Aid? We all have pounded some serious Kool-Aid at some point in life. From hair dye to an addition to pickles, Kool-Aid has become more than just another beverage. This drink was invented in Hastings, Nebraska in 1927 by Edwin Perkins. Today’s episode will dive deep into the backstory and give us some great fun facts.

Looking for Memories

Before I dive into who invented Kool-Aid, I wanted to remind you that I’m always looking for people to come on the show and share their food memories. In today’s episode I share my memory of dinner at grandma’s on a cold winter night. Every time it snows, I think of this memory. Make sure you check it out!

If you have a favorite food memory or family recipe, I want to know about it. Email me at toastykettle@gmail.com. We will get you on the show!

Koolickles?? What??

The most shocking thing that stood out to me from today’s episode is the humble Koolickle. Leave it to the south to take a pickle, and enhance, or defile, it with Kool-Aid. I’m going to have to try this out and report back.
