Hey, Kool-Aid!

Here's something I never would have seen at the Brewer Hannaford :

Tamarind flavored Kool-Aid! And en Espanol to boot! 

I haven't bought Kool-Aid in... wow. I don't even know how long. For me, it's water, iced tea, or Crystal Light. But I just couldn't resist this! I've read a lot about tamarind, but growing up in central Maine, it really wasn't a big part of my life. I know it's a tropical fruit, it's used a lot in Asian and Indian cuisines, and it's supposed to have a sweet-sour flavor. I also am pretty sure I read somewhere that tamarind was the original flavoring for cola. Is that true?

Empty the envelope into a pitcher and measure out 1 cup (ouch!) of sugar. Add water, stir, taste. Hmmm... maybe I should wait 'til it's cold? I'll withhold judgement for now.

Later... it's adequately chilled. Second taste test. Yuck!! This doesn't taste anything like cola! It's overwhelmingly sweet with a flavor far too similar to cantaloupe for my taste. Yes, I'm the only person on the planet who hates cantaloupe.

Well, Kevin likes it. It's almost gone. I'm back on ice water.
