The INSIDER Summary:
- Kool-Aid Bursts are delicious but hard to close.
- The plastic tab on top is torn off to open it.
- A Twitter user figured out you can re-seal it by turning the tab upside-down.
- Everyone is losing their minds.
If you grew up in the ’90s, you probably hoped to find a bottle of Kool-Aid Bursts in your lunchbox. They’re a bottled-up version of the powder mix, and they’re still sold today.
There’s just one problem with them: They seem to be impossible to reseal. To open a bottle, you’re supposed to tear off a plastic U-shaped tab from the top. It’s impossible to reattach the same way.
Or at least that’s what we thought. Twitter user @Pelicans found out that you can simply turn the cap around and stuff it into the hole in the bottle the other way around. That’ll reseal the bottle. His trick is going viral.
After all my years drinking these, I finally figured out that you can reverse the top and close it again pic.twitter.com/k82WmMXIJN

Some users tried the trick out themselves, and a few drops still made it out. It seems that even with the top sealed, you can’t turn the bottle too quickly.
