Flavor Aid is a non-carbonated soft drink beverage made by Jel Sert in West Chicago, Illinois, introduced in 1929. It is sold throughout the United States as an unsweetened powdered concentrate drink mix, similar to Kool-Aid drink mix.
Flavor Aid has also introduced several flavors that catered to the Hispanic population with bilingual packaging and various exotic flavors. The Hispanic versions do not include cherry or berry punch, and have instead root beer, mango, apple, Jamaica (hibiscus), tamarindo, tangerine, and pineapple-orange.
Flavor Aid is one of the drinks that was at the Jonestown commune but it is not certain it is the drink used to poison the members.
