The sugar sludge of my youth is a warm and fuzzy memory. I am (kinda) proud to confess I added way too much REAL sugar to the old school Kool-Aid packets with water. It created a slow-moving goop at the bottom of the pitcher that made gulping to the end a reward.
I drank that fake Cherry juice containing real sugar and I turned out to be a functional adult. But I came to my senses over time and gave up the Kool-Aid.
Now look what that Red Monster has done. He pimps himself out as fake waters “Burstin” with hydration. Why would I feed my family a double whammy that contains both High Fructose Corny-ness AND Sucralose?
The Kool-Aid Man says Burstin’ Waters are a “sensible solution to hydrate your kids”. Does he think we’re a bunch of stupids? Please, people. Give your kid a real bottle of water instead.
Burstin Waters are an idiotic move for spineless parents who won’t put their foot down on their child’s whiny demands for sweets upon sweets.
