Aw, you don’t remember fizzies?

They’re like fruit flavored denture tablets. EXCEPT- you drop it in a glass of water and drink instead of soak.

I’m not sure if your wife is thinking of what I’m thinking of. I’m thinking of a small packet of round sweets that tasted like fizzy cola. They were great.

Sounds like Lotsa Fizz which had a sort of baking soda type middle. A vintage local store still carries them.

Okay, fizzies came in a tablet form and dissolved in a glass of water to make a drink like Kool Aid? if this is correct, then what happened to it? is it still available? i use to drink a lot of Kool Aid as a kid and i would like a fizzie to compare the taste of Kool Aid. if its still available, where can it be found?

I haven’t seen them anywhere locally in years, but apparently they’re making a comeback! You can call 877.FIZZIES to find a local retailer.

Fizzies not only dissolved into a glass of water to make Kool Aid-like soda pop, they fizzed…And they fizzed really good, too (really well?) They were more sparkling than champagne. (They were like carbonated Kool Aid).

I didn’t like the taste, but I loved watching and listening to them fizzle.

They were around in the early to mid 60s.
