Review of Kool-Aid Fun Fizz Drink Tablets

This is a review of a personal purchase of Kool-Aid Fun Fizz. I was not compensated for this review nor sent a sample.

If you are as old as I am you will remember Fizzies drink tablets. They were a lot of fun because you dropped one in a glass of water and they made a fizzies sweet drink. The sugar was already in the tablet and it worked like an Alka-Seltzer tablet. The thing I loved to do though was to put the fizzy tablet on my tongue and let it fizz that way and not make it into a drink. I am sure you weren’t supposed to do it but it was much more fun that way.

When we were in the Commissary a couple of weeks ago Greg spotted these Kool-aid FunFizz tablets. I couldn’t believe it. Kool-aid brought back the fizzy drink and it works the exact same way. Today I tried it and this is what I think of them.

First, they are just as much fun as the original. They are sanitary because each fizz tablet comes in it’s own package. Those small packages are in a zip stand-up bag for easy storage.

Koolaid Fun Fizz Review Laughin Lemonade

You open the package and just plop the tablet in a glass of cold water and watch it fizz. It is great fun for kids to watch. Of course, I am almost 50 but that didn’t stop me from putting a tablet on my tongue – just a piece because a whole tablet would have made my mouth explode – and trying it the way I did when I was a kid. It was fantastic.

Personally, I think the drink is a little weak with one tablet and from what I remember of the originals it was the same way. You definitely get a blast of flavor if you put it on your tongue. I bet Kool-aid doesn’t want you trying it that way because it is probably bad for you or something. You can put two tablets in a bottle of water. I still would suggest using 2 if you are making a full 8 oz glass of the drink.

I tried the lemonade flavor. I found out from the Kool-aid brand website (it’s a Kraft Foods brand) that they were 3 flavors you can try:

  • Laughin’ Lemonade
  • Partyin’ Punch and
  • Gigglin’ Grape


Now adults will want to know that this is basically Kool-aid so if you can’t take drinks with dye in it then this is not the drink for you but kids will love it.

The only negative thing I would have to say about it is that it contains ASPARTAME. I most definitely don’t drink anything with Aspartame or NutraSweet or any of those artificial sweeteners in it because it does three things to me. It gives me a headache, upset stomach, and bad taste in my mouth for the rest of the day. I like regular ole’ sugar.

I’m just wondering, do companies think that sugar is so bad? Why when those artificial sweeteners have such bad side effects. Not everyone gets them but I am sure I am not the only one that it affects that way. Why not make these Kool-aid Funfizz tablets with pure sugar like the originals and offer both options to people.

Anyway, just wanted to share what I bought and tested out from Kool-aid. It was fun to relive a little childhood.

  1. wow. i love kool-aid but i agree with you the fizzy tablets totaly suck. I’m not at all happy or satisfied or cooled-down by this pack of powdered lies. Great article by the way, your really hot.

  2. Looks like FIzzies are back as well.
    Apparently the reason they were pulled from the market before was due to them using the Artifical Sweetener used to flavor it cyclamate, and when the FDA banned it, the drug company making them at the time didn’t know how to reformulate and still make them work.
