Speaking of things mixed with Doritos, has anyone ever heard of happy crack? It might just be around here, and it's certainly not an officially marketed product. The "crack" comes from, you guessed it, crack the drug. A bunch of 6th graders invented the name to sound "cool", don't blame me. Idiots. Anyway, it's just sugar mixed with Kool-Aid powder, and it's ridiculously good (if eaten). 

Somehow, it's really good when placed on a Nacho Cheese Dorito. I can not explain it, it's just like that. The incredible sweetness of the happy crack mixed with that cheese powder somehow is delicious.
Chocolate milk with it mixed in, as confirmed by my friend, is not quite as delicious.ahdn_ringo_09

What is Kool-Aid Power?

KOOL AID POWER, ACTIVATE!!!

But Kool-Aid powder is a water flavoring that makes it taster like fruit. Total crap, but it's so sweet

Which flavor Kool-Aid do you like with your Nacho Cheese Doritos? What is the ratio of sugar to Kool-Aid in happy crack?

Actually, I can understand the yin-yang, sweet-salty appeal of this little treat. It would in the same vein of having M&Ms with popcorn at the theater.

I can tell you grape is horrible with it. Grape Kool-Aid is horrible anyway, though. Blueberry is good though. 

And I have no idea about ratios. I've never made it myself, but if I did, I'd probably just stick a little of each

So you mix this powder into water, and it tastes of fruit?

No offence, but I wonder why people don't just eat the fruit the drink is meant to taste of (or drink its juice). I don't see the attraction in drinking something that comes out of a sachet and is that brightly coloured at all.

So humans have invented a product that is designed to taste of the juice of a fruit that already exists but is much worse for you and has none of the health benefits? 

And we are meant to be smart?!

Yep, you got it.

No, I don't understand it much, either.

I've never actually mixed it in water. It's a watered down fruity taste, too. Yuck

But in this powder mixed with sugar, the amount of sweetness might make someone explode. And it's so good.

Oh, that's a good thing…? Still, enough people must buy and like it if they sell it.

What are the ingredients of this mixture? Is it just E numbers, additives and sugar?

To me it sounds revolting, like those bogging cheap sweets that are pure sugar and suck your mouth down your throat before vomiting it back up.

The 'Sharkleberry Fin' unsweetened one has this in it:

CITRIC ACID, MALTODEXTRIN, CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, ARTIFICIAL COLOR, RED 40, TOCOPHEROL AND BHA (PRESERVATIVES).

Sounds nice and healthy.

Are you speaking from personal experience on that one? I don't think I've ever experienced that sensation before. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Well at least a small part of the ingredients are natural, that makes all the difference.ahdn_paul_01a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Reminds me of when younger there was a powder we could buy that would fizz and pop in your mouth; a bit of googling found it to be Fizz Wizz. Great for a kid but not now.

I was looking around the net about Kool-Aid and came across a page that has left me incredibly baffled. I won't post it on the grounds of decency.

Reminds me of 'rainbow dust'

It's basically 'coloured sugar'. Pink isn't even in the fricken rainbow!

Taste the rainbow additives children

Wow, I remember those.

Would take 10 minutes just to open the damn things with your teeth that had just been fixed by the dentist after being rotted away by all the sugar and additives in the damn things in the first place. You'd then experience such a sugar buzz that if you were hit by a car you'd just lay there grinning like a complete buffoon not realising what had happened. And of course you never bought just one, it was 2 or 3 at least. 

Great times.heart

 Of course, sure you could get them for 5p as well, and with my weekly 50p, I used to be able to buy feckloads of sweets- ah nostalgia that and bloody inflation blue-meanie

I had Pop Rocks growing up.

In a fit of bad-girlness one day, I dumped a packet into the baptismal pool at church (not during a service though). The water went popping crazy and turned red.

Well, drinking, hot water with lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg. Very refreshing, yet comforting (if a drink can be comforting) at the same time.
