5. Sharkleberry Fin
Kudos to the name — a nod either to the classic cartoon dog (weird) or the Mark Twain book (weirder) — but its odd mix of artificial fruits (orange, strawberry, and… banana?) will make you say “Oh Nooo!”
4. Green Apple
The Kool-Aid chemists just stopped trying to cook up something even remotely realistic; this stuff is tart as hell and tastes like a liquefied Jolly Rancher.
Don’t drink the Kool-Aid — opt for Sunny D instead.
2. Ice Cool
Ah, the flavor literally no one asked for. Menthol in Kool-Aid? Not cool.
1. Root beer
Gotta be honest here: We’ve never actually tried what is very likely the most identity-confused flavor of the Kool-Aid canon. But this sugary soda simulation — minus the carbonation — surely falls flat.
