Love It or Hate It: Unusual Uses For Kool-Aid

While watching television the other day, I saw a commercial for Kool-Aid that got me thinking. Kraft Foods, the food giant that makes the fruity punch powder of my youth, has embarked on a campaign to encourage different uses for the mix. Creative ideas include using Kool-Aid as a flavoring agent for plain yogurt or cupcake frosting, a color boost for cake, and even to turn tamales into dessert. Olé!

While I think it's great that Kool-Aid is trying to reinvent itself, a few of the ideas, such as the tamale, struck me as less than appealing. Would you ever experiment with any of the suggestions? If you have already, please share your Kool-Aid experience with us below!
