I am a sucker for new products, and my weak spot is mostly limited edition or new food products, or of course, beauty products. This weeks stupid quick whim shopping decision led me to tossing in a package of Kool-Aid Fun Fizz Partying Punch.
I do not know why I bought it, I hate Kool-Aid, and hate the fact that it never tastes like it has sugar added to it. I do however love the big fruit punch pitcher mascot for the Kool-Aid brand, and when I took a closer look at this new drink concept I realized the Fun Fizz were actually tablets that you are to add to a bottle or cup of water.
Sort of like, Airborne, or alka seltzer tablets. Instead of releasing a fizzy rancid flavored beverage, this one will release a flavor called Partying Punch.
The tablets in the package are all individually wrapped in adorable packages containing a picture of the big red Kool-Aid pitchers face on it.
Inside you have yourself a little round red tablet. I took the tablet out and placed it into a bottle of water, and waited for it to finish fizzing away.
I have to admit, it was neat watching this one fizz away and turn my water red. It took a bit to fizz completely though which was annoying, and for the kids, will take patience, otherwise they will end up just swallowing half the tablet, so just make sure they allow it to completely dissolve.
Okay, so this partying punch concept sounded cool, but my god it ruined me entire bottle of water. It tastes so horrible. It has that original powdered zing that Kool-Aid powdered packages have, only with a light carbonated tinker to the flavor that actually makes the fruit punch taste like old sour punch. The partying punch name to this one fits well enough, it tastes like stale beer mixed with some gross rotting punch flavor.
Yes they sound cool, yes they even look cool in their little package, but my God they turn water into a foul mixture of sour lightly carbonated punch which just tastes terrible. I would skip out on these tablets completely, and save yourself the $3.49, which is what the asking price is on this nasty little things.
