Kool-Aid can trace its beginnings to 1927 in Hastings, Nebraska when Edwin Perkins found a way to remove the liquid from a fruit concentrate that he had created, which left only the powder. Kool-Aid comes in pouches and canisters in powdered form in flavors such as Strawberry, Cherry, Raspberry, Grape, Orange and Lemon-Lime. It is also available premade, such as with Kool-Aid Jammers, Kool-Aid Bursts and Kool-Aid Singles.
