Anybody remember these?

What were those things that you put in a glass of water and they'd fizz and flavor it like cola, etc? Anybody remember those from their childhood?

    I think bottled sodas use to be more of an expensive treat. For one thing, they came only in those small old "coke" bottles (6 oz or so)--not really much of a drink if you were really thirsty. Most families in my neighborhood relied on other, cheaper drinks for the kids to guzzle all summer--mostly Kool-Aid and, when they came along, fizzies. And this had the bonus of giving me easy access to Kool-Aid straight out of the package (unmixed with water). I used to open a package and lick it--yum!
