Brilliant analysis there.
Note that I'm not an American and therefore I'm not famillair with all American brands.
Flavor Aid is not a popular or well-known brand. It still exists in the U.S. but people in casual usage (and even people at the time) would call it Kool-Aid, since that's become a generic term for instant drink mix. The piece of "interesting" trivia here is the brand.
Punch may mean different things to different people. I don't think every flavor of instant drink mix would be described as "punch", in fact. Lemonade, for example, and maybe not even the grape flavor.
I'm not sure how reliable this is, but apparently grape was the flavor of Flavor Aid used at Jonestown. Is that "punch"? I'm not sure.
Some people might use punch as a general term for this kind of drink. But it's even more generic than that, since it also includes non-instant drinks maid with mixed fruit juices and a number of alcoholic drinks. So "punch" may be correct, but if so, it's meaninglessly, tautologically so; as if we were to accept "beverage" itself.
And besides, it's not that hard to type one more letter...
