I don't remember if it was still around in the 70's, but we used to get root beer flavored Kool Aid. It tasted kind of like root beer but without the foam.

Yes. It was actually made by Wylers. I contacted the company several years ago to see what happened to it. They no longer make it. I had scoured the shelves for it for my own son. It was the BEST! So sad it's gone....

As a kid I was lactose intolerant and this was all I wanted. If I think about it hard, I can still taste it!

Someone at Kool Aid should get it started again. I here that FlaVorAid makes a root beer flavor.

FlavorAid is owned by Jel Sert. FlavorAid makes bilingual packaged Root Beer. I guess hispanics like root beer more than others. Wylers is also owned by Jel Sert, but no longer makes the root beer flavor. A link on their site takes you to where you can purchases 72 packs for around $17 delivered. Hopefully the same taste as our childhood. - January 16, 2008 - Report this comment

I have a root beer Kool-Aid package that was copyrighted in 1941. It is also brown, green and white and on the back it has about joining the Boy and Girl Scouts. Found it while cleaning out my Grandmothers upstairs. Any suggestions on what is worth?

Childhood Summer memories and Root beer flavored Kool Aid!! I have asked a million people if they remember it, and no one does. I grew up in Seattle and remember getting it at Safeway with other Kool Aid flavors. I remember the package being brown. SO GOOD !!

It made the best popsicles. We had that sweet mold from tupperware. When we lost the yellow tops, we would have to use sticks.

When I was a kid/teenager in the 70's our family enjoyed Wyler's root beer. I remember the packet being brown and white. It was like a Kool-Aid mix, only by Wyler's. I wonder why companies stop making products when it is so popular? My family and friends loved Wyler's root beer. I wish they would bring it back. Bring back Koogle banana flavored peanut butter too. (another 70's favorite).

I never liked this because it was like drinking flat root beer. I couldn't get used to anything soda flavored that didn't have a fizz.

Root beer Kool Aid was sold in 1955 and only 1955. It was the only flavor at my stand. Made lots of nickles.

Found one image of the 1955 Root Beer Kool Aid mix packet, with a glass of it pictured. Also found a display box from 1959, with packets, with the smiling pitcher, also Root Beer. That one, I believe, is Canadian, for a price of six cents a pack (or five for a quarter) is printed on box. Even back then, Kool Aid was an international name. Likely was more popular in Canada than here.
