Helpful hints

  • Kool-Aid® liquid drink mix is sugar-free and does not contain phosphate additives like powdered Kool-aid drink mix.
  • Change the Kool-Aid® and sherbet flavors so the color matches your event. Try red for Valentine’s Day and Fourth of July celebrations and green for St. Patrick’s Day.
