Generally August is the month that I really start to wish for ghosts and goblins to hit store shelves while secretly listing to Christmas music in preparation for snowflakes and colored lights. This year... I'm feeling much more complacent in letting summer hang around for a little while longer. Seems like this year in particular has been a good one. Here in Summer 2011 we have seen such awesome abstractions as Mountain Dew Pitch Black and Retro 7Up Bottles just to name a few. Things like this can go a long way in making one forget just how much I generally hate these middle summer months.
From weddings to football I have had lots of fun distractions during Summer 2011 and right now I am fine with simply living in the moment a little while longer. Let's take these last few weeks of August and enjoy what little time we have left with the season. So with that I mind I set out to search for another new item with that distinctive summer flavor to it. Behold the artificially flavored glory that is Kool-Aid Fun Fizz!

I especially like the thought of Kool-Aid branded condoms, complete Kool-Aid Man's smug little grin on the front of them. Though something tells me that is a promotional item we will probably never get to see. As for the actual tablets themselves, well those are just fantastic. They look like those over-sized Sweet Tarts that I remember eating all the time as a kid and am not sure if they are still sold in stores.
And just like the condom-esk package that these tablets are born from, each tablet also come imprinted with Kool-Aid Man's face on the front of them. I approve of this entire package design. Which also photographs much better than I originally thought it was going to. The only question I have left now is what one would taste like if you just ate it directly?
