      Never had the golden nectar Kool-Aid.I remember the rootbeer flavour,that was great.
      They also have watermelon cherry,and here you can buy Kool_Aid flavours geared to the hispanic market
      (San Antonio,TX area).There is jamica(hibiscus flower),tamarind,mango which i love,and pineapple.
      There is a website devoted to the various Kool_Aid flavours,but I don't recall the address.Wish they would bring the rootbeer back.It was already sweetend in a large pouch.

          Good grief; all those flavors are dizzying.

          I liked the Strawberry, Cherry and Grape. When I was a kid, my Mom wouldn't get those flavors. God forbid if we spilled and stained something. She got the Lemon-Lime. She also didn't put in enough sugar. The cool Moms put in the required amount of sugar or more.

            My Mom rarely bought Kool Aid, and, yes, she cut the sugar. Of course, as little kids the more sugar the better.

            One time I made it low-cal, with "extra" cyclamate. Probably about the amount they were feeding those lab rats. It didn't make it better.

            I don't recall having Kool Aid since...

              I have about 20 envelopes in one of my kitchen drawers, we still have kid's around. My favorite(and my Mom's)is Lemon-lime, we by it by the box. My son's is black cherry. Growing up I used to love to mix the flavors, orange/grape(this came out almost black)lemon-lime/cherry....I remember a few years ago they came out with a limited flavor for halloween. Strawberry was my least favorite.

                My children tell me the "Ice" flavors "tingle". They like the Blue colors too.
                Also the Mystery Flavor is a hit.
                I usually keep any they pick, but I like the Lemonade and Tropical Punch.
                The diet packs (no sugar needed) are about $3.00 for 2 packs vs. .20 a pack of the non sweetened. I think those packs come only in Cherry and Tropical Punch, but you don't have to add sugar.

                  Never was a fan of Kool-Aid... and I thought it was kind of scary the way that MONSTER of a pitcher whould come blasting through the walls spewing his insides all over... "OH YEAH!"... the horror...

                    I do remember the Golden Nectar Kool-Aid. Maybe it was me, but I always thought Kool-Aid tasted better than Wylers or Dailys stuff when I was little. My wife and I buy Kool-Aid every once in awhile for the kids, but usually the sugar free stuff and its not bad.

                      Some of these flavour I remember and others no.I still buy Kool-Aid and Flavour Aid and I have no kids.They taste good and probably better than lots of sodas.Been cutting back on them,plus it's cheaper.Get more glasses from a pitcher of kool-Aid or ice tea,and costs less.Soda at the convience store is like a $1.19.At work they are 75cents a bottle.So I make some up and bring it to work sometimes.At that Kool-Aid website,they had pictures of the packets.

                            Do you mean the watermelon/cherry twist? I checked out their web site and didn't see regular watermelon. I was just curious because watermelon sounded tasty.
