The 1990s were a time of neon colors, Nintendo 64, and when getting slimed on national television was somewhat of a great privilege. Were you truly a '90s kid if you didn't daydream about competing on Legends of the Hidden Temple? Not a chance.
Kool-Aid was that flavorful, sugary drink that you could make by the gallon in a matter of seconds. It was never the healthiest choice, but it comes in a bunch of radical colors and flavors so that's all that matters here. The best part? We had the option of taking our Kool-Aid to go.
These glorious juice boxes served as the main source of our '90s hydration. A new pack of these in the fridge was like liquid gold, and we could guzzle down a few of these in one sitting. Empty calories never tasted so sweet.
Even though the majority of us have moved on from our sugary childhood past times, there's something so nostalgic about these to us '90s kids. Good thing we have Twitter to bring us up to speed on everything we didn't realize about our favorite juice box of all time. Kool-Aid Bursts will never be the same.
The Kool-Aid Blast cap was always kind of an intricate mystery. The best advice: do not try to remove it with your teeth, or you will endure some major tooth pain. This dangerous piece of plastic has an actual purpose, and your juice sipping days will forever be changed.
Twitter user Chandler, who goes by the Twitter handle @Pelicans, was indulging in a Kool-Aid Bursts when he made a shocking realization. The cap shouldn't just be discarded after you twist it off. You can actually put it to good use.
By flipping the cap over and sticking it back in the opening you can properly reseal the bottle. Wait, what?! How did none of us know about this sorcery before? Chandler had to perform one final test to convince the masses.
The last picture included in the tweet shows Chandler holding the Kool-Aid Burst bottle upside down, as if it were magic. He captioned the tweet, "after all my years drinking these, I finally figured out that you can reverse the top and close it again," and the internet is astounded. All these years we could have been resealing our Kool-Aid and save it for later? This is a game-changer.
Chandler's post has been retweeted over 70,000 times, and the internet doesn't know how to process this new information. It's like we are being robbed of our childhood, but that didn't stop a ton of people from trying out this trick.
One Twitter user shared this photo of her trying to reclose her own Kool-Aid Burst, and she was less than thrilled with the result. "false alarm they still drip," she stated. All that glitters, is not gold, my friends.
Some Twitter users explained that you need to put the cap straight in and not turn it too fast for this trick to be effective. Seems like too much fine print, and it definitely isn't 100 percent effective for those looking to avoid unnecessary, bright-colored messes.
