Did you drink Kool-Aid when you were growing up? I did! Just about every childhood occasion called for kool-aid. From Vacation Bible School to slumber parties, Kool-Aid was always on the scene. These days, Kool-Aid Pie Recipes are my jam! All of my Kool-Aid pies are easy to make and taste delicious. The sky truly is the limit when it comes to making different flavored Kool-Aid pies.
I usually purchase a prepared graham cracker crust when I’m making they type pies. Sometimes I purchase the individual graham cracker pie crusts because we all want to have our very own dessert and you don’t have to slice. Just serve.
Kool-Aid was developed in Nebraska by the late Edwin Perkins. Fruit Smack was one of the most popular items that he developed. The only problem was shipping. The glass bottles were too heavy and were prone to leak or break during shipping.
In 1927, Perkins discovered a way to remove the liquid and package the remaining powder in envelopes that he designed and printed himself. This new powder also had a new name – Kool-Ade and now Kool-Aid. The new product sold for 10 cents an envelope and came in six flavors – grape, lemon-lime, cherry, orange, raspberry, and strawberry. Now, there are over 21 powdered favors.
Now that you know some of the stories behind Kool-Aid, let’s take a look at the tasty recipes.
