A few assumptions:

1. The only real problem is they assume Kool-Aid is his blood, when he could be a magically created glass golem that is simply used for transport of products. In that case, the contents of his body are irrelevant.

2. They assume he's made of glass, when he could be made of any transparent material, even a material much more durable than glass.
