OH YEAH

Maybe it’s the burden of adult responsibilities, but fruit-flavored drinks just don’t hit like they used to. But luckily for us (and unfortunately for the vintage powdered drink black market), Kool-Aid is letting consumers taste the past yet again.

Instagram sleuth @candyhunting announced the return of historically popular flavors Rock-A-Dile Red and Purplesaurus Rex with a post sharing images of the packaging, which features the Kool-Aid man hanging out with some throwback reptiles. The two flavors will be available as jammers and on-the-go flavor packets. They’ll also be specifically marketed as Retro jammers and packs, so good luck trying to cheat someone out of $125 on eBay. There isn’t yet any news on where the new flavors will be available, but we’ll let you know as soon as the details develop.

Of course, nostalgic longing isn’t new, and this isn’t the first time these flavors have resurfaced. Back in 2014, Rock-A-Dile Red, Purplesaurus Rex, and three other heyday flavors were brought back for a short time. And if the reborn flavors don’t taste as good as you remember, you can always use them to change up your hair or clean your dishwasher.
