Reader Oscar Mulhern e-mailed to tip us off to three new Philippines-only Tang flavours: Calamansi, Dalandan, and Honey Lemon.
Calamansi (also spelled kalamansi, and known in America as calamondin) is a citrus tree that bears fruit year-round. Dalandan is Citrus Aurantium, also known as the Philippine Orange. And honey lemon is, well… honey lemon flavour, I’m guessing 🙂
Thanks to Mohammad Shariq for dropping us a line to let us know about two new Tang flavours being specifically marketed in Pakistan for use as popsicles (ice lollies) or drinks: Tang Freeze kiwi lemon pineapple, and Tang Freeze watermelon strawberry. Sounds Tang-licious!
Thanks to a generous supporter of our cause, I’m am pleased to say that we have just received ten wonderful assorted sachets of Tang, all the way from Argentina. Behold:
Tang x 10!
The flavours – in no particular order – are: ananá (pineapple); multifruta (multi-fruit); naranja-durazno (orange-peach); naranja, pomelo y limon (orange, grapefruit and lemon), naranja-banana (orange-banana), pomelo rosado (pink grapefruit), pera (pear), naranja dulce (sweet orange), manzana (apple), durazno (peach).
Interestingly enough, three of the sachets include limited-edition “Toy Story 3” branding. I guess that makes them collector’s items… although I can assure you that won’t stop us from guzzling them with the usual enthusiasm 🙂
They also make mention of “www.clubtang.com.ar“… which we haven’t investigated yet, but that might be worth checking out once you’re done here.
Since this is such a special occasion, I think we’ll endeavour to capture some video reviews as we make these up and taste them. We actually have some introductory videos “in the can” which are yet to be edited, but these little “taste test” videos may end up on the site first… stay tuned.
What’s the most unusual Tang flavour you’ve ever had? Have you ever tried one you didn’t like? Leave your comments below.
Sometime around early 2010, in one of the most heartless cases of corporate brutality in Australian history (rivaling even the sale of the Vegemite or Arnott’s brands to overseas interests, or the collapse of Ansett Airlines), Kraft Foods Australia made the erroneous decision to discontinue importing Tang orange drink.
