Funny Face

Funny Face was a powdered instant drink mix similar to Kool-Aid, marketed by Pillsbury in the 1960s and 1970s. They originally used calcium cyclamate as a sweetener, but because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the use of cyclamates, the sweetener was changed to saccharin, with the option of buying packets with no sweetener. The product line was sold to another company which limited the distribution and discontinued it in 1978. An animated series based on the drinks is being produced by Renegade Animation.

  9. I don’t see anything controversial about this. China is still a Communistic country today, we don’t have any significant relations with them. This crap called Political Correctness should be abolished !

  11. I had the Funny Face drink stand; I don’t remember if I sent in empty packets or won it in a contest,
    but I had the best drink stand in the neighborhood! Back then we sold drinks for 2 cents or sometimes 5 cents a glass!
