Pros:great bottle design, lasts longer than expected given its size, pre-mixed and ready to drink
Cons:cannot close bottles once opened, excessively high in sugar
The Bottom Line: If you like grape koolaid and want something you can take along to have available when you need a drink regardless of your location, give these a try.
I was recently reminded how much I liked grape koolaid when I tried the similar tasting Fierce Grape Gatorade. When I stumbled on a sale on actual grape koolaid in the form of Grape Koolaid Bursts, I grabbed some.
Recommend this product?
Grape Koolaid Bursts are pre-mixed 6.75 ounce plastic bottles of grape koolaid. They're sold in six packs and mainly found in grocery stores; none of my local drugstores or superstores carry them with any regularity but I have seen them in a Walmart once.
The bottles have twist tops made from the same material and part of the main bottle. These tops are permanently detached and the bottles cannot be closed again. The resulting opening is a small hole in the middle of the top of the bottle. This emits a fairly small stream of liquid, helping to make the fairly small bottles last longer.
The bottles are very thin and easily slip into a purse or the pocket of a tote bag. They're slightly contoured to conform to the shape of your hand, making them very easy to hold. I really like this bottle design.
The koolaid inside is a bit smoother and slightly richer than powdered koolaid but still tastes like a grape sugar drink. It has a fairly sour aftertaste which regular koolaid does as well, but this one is much stronger. I like the grape gatorade slightly better, but this is still a nice drink. I also like having the option of the smaller portion while knowing I can always drink more by popping another bottle.
Each 6.75 ounce bottle is a serving and contains 100 calories, 35 milligrams of sodium, and a whopping 24 grams of sugar. Considering the size of this portion, that's just an insanely high amount of sugar even given that the main ingredients of koolaid are sugar and water.
Even so, I like Grape Koolaid Bursts. It's nice that they're pre-mixed and available in these small, portable single use bottles. I love the bottle design and how it seems to help stretch out every last drop of the drink so you think you've had more than you've really had. If you like grape koolaid and want something you can take along to have available when you need a drink regardless of your location, give these a try.
