YTMND: Black People Love Kool-Aid
It might be the advertising speaking but according to Kraft, the makers, black people really like Kool-Aid…A LOT! Maybe it is the sweet flavor, the bright colors, or the fact that for 25 cents you end up with a ton of delicious liquid to imbibe. But why do they like it? Even Yahoo Answers has tried to tackle the question. Over at Urban Dictionary this breakdown:
The universal drink of the ghetto.
Comes in many flavors such as grape, cherry, blueberry etc, but known to the ghetto natives as red, purple, etc.
All I know is that with some grits and chicken, grape Kool-Aid rocks. Gotta love growing up in the South.
