I couldn't find a thread for this, and I believe there should be one.
If there is one already that I missed in my search please disregard this and link me.
I could not even find one on other sites, except two out-dated ones.
So let this be a start!
If you collect kool-aid packets come here and list what you have and what you need.
Also feel free to tlak about kool-aid and new things you have bought on ebay and elsewhere.
I only have a few right now, as they are very hard to find, except for the few I buy on ebay. I only started this about 6 months ago. I was to busy collecting other stuff, then realized, now is the time for kool-aid to shine!
Lets begin kool-aid lovers!
I have thus far: mang-o-barry island twists (bunch of these) (1990s) lemon-lime with bugs bunny (only 1 of these) (1960s) all the current flavors (magic twists and invisible, etc etc)
other: talking kool-aid man kool-aid tin 2 sets of kool-aid man plastic picthers with cups
Crappy yes i know! but these things are hard to track down, so i pretty much need all of them.
Wife and I have been collecting points for years, any chance that they might have a decent selection of things to trade in for ever again? We tried to get a pitcher set once in the 90's but never recieved it. I probably should go to their web site and check it out there, but I saw your thread and thought I would contribute.
I have a couple of packets. Rainbow Punch was my all time favorite. I bought 2 packets of that for about $5/each on eBay. I also have 4 packets of the re-issued Sharkleberry Fin. I got those for about $2/each.
I have two (2) membership packets: 1930's "KOOL-AID JUNIOR AVIATION CORPS" CLUB ITEMS. This was a promotion for children in the early days of commercial flight around 1938 from Kool-Aid and TWA. It was run by Charles Fredericks - TWA Pilot (Chief of Boys Division) and Mary Carlton TWA Hostess (Chief of Girls Division). Also part of the promotion a certificate, Kool-Aid advertising and other paper ephemera items. A dark blue hat was a ''Pilot'' hat for boys, but there was also a red ''Hostess'' hat for girls available. Follow the link for item description and pictures. Although the item on the "Hakes" link was sold in 2005, it shows and describes my same items. The contents shown are included in a (1) membership packet. http://www.hakes.com/item.asp?Auction=184&ItemNo=30454 In 2007 Kool-aid celebrated their 80th Anniversary which increased the value of these early Kool-aid items. The winning bid in 2005 was $165.00 which was below the value in "Hakes Guide" "Overstreet Presents: 'Hakes Price Guide to Character Toy Premiums' #1" (First edition) It lists the Junior Aviator stuff by it's component parts - i.e., separate pieces, not as one full kit. The various pieces of a single kit were valued at $350.00. Add to that the envelope, and the fact that each set is complete... I would sell them (each membership packet) for $300.00 each or both for $500.00. Serious parties can Private Message me, include your e-mail for additional info or photos of my actual items. Thank you.
I'm new to this kool-aid collecting. I'm looking to find the cool kool-aid packets that I remember as a kid. I'd love a set of Sharkleberry Fin, Purplesaurus Rex, Pink Swimmingo, Great Bluedini, Rockadile Red, incrediberry, and Ghoul-Aid. Does anyone have a set of these that are for sale? I know they rereleased most of them, but I'm really looking for the original packets. Thanks so much.
