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!
We’ve added a whopping seven new Tang flavours to our list… it’s enough to make you thirsty!
In 2012, Tang Arabia introduced Passion fruit-Pineapple, Kiwi-Strawberry (thanks to fan Biji Shafeek for the tip), and Orange-Mango-Strawberry.
Fan Megan Eierman also tipped us off to Tamarind, Orange carrot, blackberry, and cranberry grape.
Thanks folks! If you spot any flavours “in the wild” that are not listed here, please drop us a line!
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:
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.
Tang drinkers around the country are going thirsty! In desperation we’ve tried other, “Try-hard Tang”, powdered orange drinks. We’ve tried “grey-import” Pineapple or Mango-flavoured Tang. It’s rumoured that some have even tried drinking actual orange juice. Yes, these are the depths Tang drinkers will stoop to to get their fix of orange-flavoured liquid.
But ultimately there is no substitute for Tang. So Tang lovers of Australia, unite, and say, “Bring back Tang, today!”
