DH fell off the wagon

Posted by   + Show Post
The kool-aid wagon that is. He used to have a two pack a day habit and I broke it. Got him hooked on iced tea...still a lot of sugar but at least he got the benefits of tea. Now that he's working in a supermarket again he's been bring home all kinds of nonsense. Last week he brought home kool-aid. Argh!

 That's how I make lemonade: 1 cup lemon juice, 1 cup sugar, 6 cups of water.

Quoting EthansMomma2010:

My cousin used to make kool-aide all the time, however he NEVER put ANY sugar in it at all.  You'd fill your glass and take a huge gulp and know IMMEDIETLY that he made it because it was so sour.  LOL

That makes my mouth pucker just thinking about it.

LOL @ "the church ladies kool-aide" That's because they tried and thin it out. And my cousin, he just didn't like sweet kool-aide.  Like who doesn't like sweet kool-aide? *chuckle*

Quoting Babujai:

We call that "Church Kool-Aid"...LOL! For some reason church ladies who'll whip up a wicked good jug of kool-aid at home will either not add enough sugar or add too much water when they make it for a church function. Maybe that's just us Lutherans...

Also, how funny is it that my spell check wants to change "Kool-aid" to "killed"?!

Ugh. I've been in this country 10 years and never had it...and never will. So full of chemicals! if my kids want something other than "just water", i have Propel sachets that are all natural that they can add on a hot day. No added color, no artificial flavor or sugar and some added electrolytes. They mostly drink water or iced tea that I make with Rooibos (redbush) tea - it is from my country, has tons of herbal healing properties, no caffeine and I add 3 teaspoons of sugar (raw, brown) to the 2 liter jug I make. Is homemade iced tea with some added sugar (which the body knows how to metabolize) not an option for your husband? Use a mix of interesting tea flavors and it may be ok as a substitute for Kool-Aid! Peach, mint, raspberry etc... good luck!

I broke the kool-aid habit by making him homemade iced tea. I just used regular black tea and white sugar though. He's not big on other flavors of tea.
