Kool-Aid was invented by Edwin Perkins in Hastings, Nebraska. Perkins liked to experiment with home-made concoctions in his mother’s kitchen and came up with a liquid concentrate he called Fruit Smack. To reduce shipping costs, in 1927, Perkins discovered a way to remove the liquid from Fruit Smack, leaving only a powder. The powder was initially named Kool-Ade and then renamed Kool-Aid. He moved production to Chicago in 1931 and sold Kool-Aid to General Foods in 1953.

Nothing says Old Time Candy like I recall going to the local theater, paying a dollar to get in and buying my Atomic Fire Ball that lasted through the whole movie!
