It wasn't kool-aid, it was flavor-aid
Flavor Aid appeared in one of the first newspaper reports on the massacre. The claim is repeated in the 1982 book Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People. And surviving witnesses said that Flavor Aid was the drink used, not Kool-Aid.

With the evidence so clear, why did the phrase "drinking the Kool-Aid" emerge? Mental Floss suggests Kool-Aid's role as being a genericized name for all flavored drinks, the popularity of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, and other factors made it easier to remember "Kool-Aid" than "Flavor Aid."

Same reason you call adjustable pliers Channel Locks, adjustable wrenches Cressant wrenches & locking pliers Vise grips.Association by top manufacturer and lack of knowledge. Ever get a text from someone that says I will be their than. That's why. By the way the text didn't "say" anything it "read" whatever was in the text. No I am not a snooty grad. I dropped out of high school to start a career in construction which I am still in after 29 years and have an office job. I didn't screw off in school though and think the 🌎 would had me a living like these 🐱 s today.
