Kool Kool-Aid Facts!

*KOOL-AID was invented in Hastings, Nebraska by an enterprising young chemist named Edwin Perkins. As a child, Perkins developed many flavoring extracts and perfumes. Later, this led to his own mail-order company, which eventually resulted in modern-day KOOL-AIDŽ.

*The original spelling of KOOL-AIDŽ was Kool-Ade, but the name was soon changed to its popular modern-day spelling.

*The seven original KOOL-AIDŽ flavors were: Cherry, Lemon-Lime, Grape, Orange, Root Beer, Strawberry, and Raspberry.

*Based on per capital sales, KOOL-AIDŽ is most popular in Memphis, Tennessee. The other top five cities are (in order) Little Rock, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, and Jacksonville, Florida. (But, we're working on making #1 Jackson, MS!!!)

*KOOL-AIDŽ is certainly an All-American favorite. So it's no surprise that more KOOL-AIDŽ is sold the week right before and the week after the 4th of July than any other period during the year. (That's around girls camp!!)

*More than 563 million gallons of KOOL-AIDŽ are consumed each year, with more than 225 million gallons in the summer. In other words, 17 gallons of KOOL-AIDŽ are consumed every second during the summer season! (I think our club drinks at least half of that!!)

*If all the envelopes of KOOL-AIDŽ sold in a year were laid end-to-end, they would stretch 58,524 miles, which would wrap around the Earth's equator twice - or
between Los Angeles and New York more than 20 times!

*Today, one glass of KOOL-AIDŽ - which cost less than a penny a glass back in 1927 - is still a bargain, costing less than a nickel a glass and beating the rate of inflation since 1947!
