These were pretty ubiquitous in the world of my youth and could be found at pretty much any school, church and dentist office I may have found myself in, let alone my parents subscribing to it for me for a few years. I haven't seen one for decades and I don't even know if this is even printed anymore!
I was really impressed with this while scanning it largely for the sheer size (80 pages for this one issue(!)) and a large breadth of things to read and make that may appeal to a pretty broad age of children. The art is quite good, too.

I remember trying to make these things and never being quite good at it.
One of those things that leaves your mind over the years until you see an ad for it like this. I drank a lot of this stuff as a kid and if I recall correctly there were a variety of flavors. Powder + sugar + water, stir, guzzle.

Art by Patricia Lynn which accompanied the piece "The Falling-Down Bear."
There are several pieces like the above by Tom Weaver in this issue.
More Tom Weaver, this time depicting the witching hour.
Roughly thirty-five cents a month for this, what a deal!
