Kool-Aid Ghoul-Aid Scary Blackberry
You could call our house a Kool-Aid shop, so to speak. We drink a lot of Kool-Aid (with sugar free sweetener), and we keep up on a lot of the new flavors that occasionally come out. Limited time flavors, however, are rare for Kool-Aid.
The company has decided to celebrate Halloween with Ghoul-Aid, a special edition flavor of "blackberry". This mix's flavor(prepared with real sugar for review) isn't quite of blackberry, but instead a mix of various purple fruits. To me, it tastes and smells mostly of blueberry, but there's also grape, blackberry, raspberry, and maybe even pomegranate. The finish of this stuff is surprisingly sour and bitter, reminiscent of a good black cherry soda.
The sourness isn't my cup of tea, and blueberry isn't my favorite flavor either. Overall, however, I laud Kool-Aid for issuing something new, and especially one that's different than their normal stable of flavors.
Original Kool-Aid(Grape, for comparison): - Good
