1) Kool-Aid was invented in 1927 in Hastings, Nebraska, as Kool-Ade [NOTE: Nathan Miller has called this into question -- see his comment below.]
2) After the government tightened regulations regarding the need for fruit juice in "Ade," the name was changed to Kool-Aid.
3) There was a Kool-Aid Man game for the Atari 2600 andMattel Intellivision. (Anyone ever play this? Can we get a review?)
Bonus: The Kool-Aid Man resembles the Syracuse mascot.
