Jolly Olly Orange Powered Drink Mix

Does anyone remember all the names of the powdered drink mixes; they had little fruit characters on the envelopes (like Kool-Aid). All I remember is Rootin Tootin Raspberry and Jolly Olly Orange. There had to be more. Put your 1960's thinking caps on!

    That was the Funny Face drink mix and was a big part of my existence back when I was ten - besides the ones you remember there was Goofy Grape, Freckle-Face Strawberry, Loudmouth Lime, and Choo-Choo Cherry, which had been Chinese Cherry as Jolly Olly had formerly been Injun Orange (I think he should have become a spy character - he could have been Agent Orange! I'll stop now).

    You are thinking of Funny Face, which was Pillsbury's version of kool aid. There were also choo-choo cherry, lefty lemon, and goofy grape.

    Oh boy - YOU DID IT!!! Funny Face - that's it! I wish I could get the whole collection of all the flavors. I remember so fondly my mother mixing up a pitcher of this stuff. Really cold on really hot summer days; we would also pour it into little plastic "make your own popsicle" molds and have it drip down our dirty little forearms.
    Thanks a bunch - what a great memory.

    Wow Vince, we must have hit send almost at the same time...when I wrote my answer yours wasn't there yet...now it is just redundant. At least we recalled a few different names. My sister got me a goofy grape bobble head a few years back. Not sure where that got to!

    I think we covered all the bases - I also remember a punch flavor, but have no idea what the character was.

    When I was a Junior or Cadette Girl Scout in the '60's, we'd go on weekend camping trips at nearby state parks and our leaders would mix several flavors of Funny Face together in a huge container and called it "Bug Juice", and that'd be our "beverage" all weekend. I remember it tasting pretty lousy and I think it's because, for some reason, Funny Face was "pre-sweetened without sugar" as it says on the packets shown in the link posted by doggydaddy. So either it was the awful-tasting sweetener or maybe the leaders combined Loud Mouth Lime with Goofy Grape. Bleh!

    We had the Funny Face mugs (made of plastic as near as I can remember) that we used to drink it from.

    I don't recall my parents ever buying Funny Face drink mixes.Mainly they bought Wyler's or Kool-Aid brand.Loved the rootbeer flavored Kool-Aid they had in the 1970s and early 80s.Then they stopped making it.I can't remember it,but there is a website that shows all the different Kool-Aid packages and different flavours.
    I think Diner-Lover they just mixed any old thing together and that's why it tasted so bad.
    Now Doritos has a flour tortilla chip.But I can recall when Kebbler's had one back in the late 1980s and early 90s. It was pretty good too,but they don't make them anymore.
    Just like Jello had a peach passion fruit flavour and also a mango jello.
