Visitor Tips and News About Birthplace of Kool-Aid
I have very low expectations and am easily entertained by sweet, silly little spots such as the "Birthplace of KoolAid." But this was nearly 20 miles off the highway and is nothing more than a few posters in a window downtown on an abandoned (super dirty) street.[Denise Thompson, 07/07/2014]
The Official Birthplace of Kool-Aid in downtown Hastings has been renovated. Colorful graphics in all of the windows depict the history of Kool-Aid marketing through the years. Visitors are encouraged to take their picture in front of the building with a six-foot-tall graphic of Kool-Aid Man. The renovation was unveiled during Kool-Aid Days 2012.[Kaleena Fong, 08/11/2012]
