He's jealous of Red Bull?  Shenanigans.  Tang's not great but it's better than Red Bull.  One time, a guy driving one of those Red Bull promotional cars got lost and asked for directions.  That was the first and last time I drank a Red Bull.  Christ, it's nasty.  And that's from a guy who likes Mountain Dew.

Out of curiosity, why did they need to use dehydrated drinks at the soundstage?  They could have just gone to the vending machines to get a drink.

:-D

I... liked Tang.

I'm sorry. I'm very much over it. I was an ignorant youth... or, "yute," depending on your heritage... and such.

Yup. My grandma bought a jar because we wanted to try it out. And that was the first & last jar of Tang ever purchased too because it tasted awful, even if you added extra sugar to it.

The only thing I ever found amusing about Tang was saying the line from the Saturday morning commercial ("Tang instant breakfast drink, for a taste that's out of this world!") into my fan because it made my voice sound just like the robot in the commercial.

Twenty years ago I ordered a screwdriver at a discoteca in Mexico.  It was made with Tang.  It was quite possibly the worst mixed drink I have ever tasted.  I trashed it ordered only Tequila drinks after that.

Tang is great for camping. A good hot drink on a cold evening is hot tang. Or, if you're more the hot chocolate type, put some tang in your hot chocolate for the glory of chocolate and orange together.

/Before you go out and actually try it, I should warn you that I've also been known to drink the blue powerade hot if I can't get hold of any tang.
 
2013-06-13 12:59:58 PM  
I still prefer Tang over fresh orange juice, because "fresh" always seems to mean "bitter and full of chunky slimy pulp that keeps trying to pull your epiglottis open and jump into your lungs."

/if I need fiber I'll cut my Tang with Metamucil, thanks

Haven't seen the frozen kind that comes out in the shape of the can in quite some time. I know Dole and some other brands exist but it was specifically the Tropicana Twister (Orange/Strawberry/Banana) mix that was the best by far.

It's every where here too.  I'm in the Southwest US and most super markets here have at least a freezer door or two with nothing but juice concentrate cans.  All kinds, and most brands that were available when I was a kid.  We also have have the fresh(ish) juice in the dairy sections as well.  We pretty much have the same selections we've always had here.  Heck, you can even find it in some of the smaller Mom&Pop shops too.

Where are you people at that can't find the juice concentrate cans?

These were awesome indeed.

You guys can't get concentrated juice anymore? Really?  It's pretty common around here.

Haven't seen the frozen kind that comes out in the shape of the can in quite some time. I know Dole and some other brands exist but it was specifically the Tropicana Twister (Orange/Strawberry/Banana) mix that was the best by far.

The Tropicana Twister from the can/bottle premixed tastes crappy in comparison.


I'm not sure about that specific brand but around here you can get frozen concentrated juice in pretty much every conceivable flavor of juice.

My childhood drinks were ecto cooler, Hawaiian punch (they don't sell it in Canada and was a primary cause of me hating Canada as a 6 year old) and these really awesome juice cans that had all kinds of flavors in one flat I don't remember the brand though. They were white cans with stylized drawings of the contents on them. Papaya was my favorite.

I remember going to Cape Kennedy when I was a kid and getting the neopolitan variety of astronaut ice cream. That was worse than Tang. I never had space sticks though.

You can paint Styrofoam a different color and it would taste better than astronaut ice cream.

weirdneighbour: Flint Ironstag: I loved the frozen tubes of concentrated orange juice you could get. You dropped it into a jug of water and waited for it to thaw. Now you can't get them anywhere.

Or you could pop the top off and eat it with a spoon.
/could never get more than halfway


concentrated orange juice is in the freezer section of every grocery store out there.

As kids in the 70s we drank Tang every breakfast. Haven't had it since.
 
2013-06-13 03:11:47 PM  

I May Be Crazy But...: Tang is great for camping. A good hot drink on a cold evening is hot tang. Or, if you're more the hot chocolate type, put some tang in your hot chocolate for the glory of chocolate and orange together.

/Before you go out and actually try it, I should warn you that I've also been known to drink the blue powerade hot if I can't get hold of any tang.


you may want to try this:

-microwawe a pack of Haribo Gummibär (jelly-beans) till the content get almost liquid, but not to hot, you don't want the plastic to melt.
-cut one corner
-Suck it!

So, here's a question about the frozen OJ concentrate... there's been numerous threads about how the jugs of orange juice you get in the store are basically filled with sugar water with flavor and pulp added later, because the shelf life of actual squeezed orange juice is measured in hours. Because the concentrate is presumably frozen soon after being squeezed, does that make it less adulterated than the stuff in the jugs?

We sold plenty when I was working for a grocery store in the 1990's.  I never quite understood the concept though.  You can get normal OJ anywhere.

Glad I wasn't the only one. That and instant hot chocolate powder were awesome!

I still like Tang -- mix it with instant tea, sugar, cinnamon and ground cloves. Add about four spoonfuls of that to hot water and it's a great spiced orange tea.

The old Tropicana Twister? Not the kind you get now already mixed in bottles like soda.

I'm in the Northeast US and it's everywhere here. Oj, that is. I don't know about Tropicana Twister specifically, because I don't drink it.

It's every where here too.  I'm in the Southwest US and most super markets here have at least a freezer door or two with nothing but juice concentrate cans.  All kinds, and most brands that were available when I was a kid.  We also have have the fresh(ish) juice in the dairy sections as well.  We pretty much have the same selections we've always had here.  Heck, you can even find it in some of the smaller Mom&Pop shops too.

Where are you people at that can't find the juice concentrate cans?

Yes, Nesquick for me. It was the rabbit and the big Q around its neck.  On TV ads and in the comics.
I was more partial to their strawberry Nesquick powder.

Storage space. With growing kids, it's hard to find room in the fridge. But I can fit 6 cans of concentrate in the freezer door. Also, shelf life.

MisterRonbo: Satan's Bunny Slippers: I liked Tang as a kid.  I know, I know.....I wonder if that plays some part in my affection for "sour" drinks as an adult.  I really do not like any sweet drinks, and my fallback is water with lemon (Lots and lots and lots of lemon. ) or fresh grapefruit juice no sweetener.

I loved the stuff as a kid, and never was much for soda.  Maybe its why I like tonic water and Collins mix to this day. My friends in high school used to think it was hilarious for some reason that I drank Collins mix, like it was some upper class affectation. But really, I just like my drinks the way I like my women - strong and bitter.


What the fark is the point of buying collins mix (aka sour mix)? It's farking lemon juice and sugar. Actually, it's supposed to be lemon juice and sugar. It's actually fake lemon flavoring and HFCS. Why not just keep a large bottle of lemon juice and some sugar? Is mixing things with a spoon that hard?

*Psst*! Don't tell anyone, but most of that "normal OJ" is made from the exact same stuff you buy in the cans.

Really?  You can still buy it?  My gosh, it can't have improved since I was a kid.  Awful stuff.

My grandmother bought Tang and forced me to drink it because the "Astronauts drink it", ego it must be good.  The only time I remember liking it was frozen in ice cube trays with Popsicle sticks.  My grandfather, father and uncles also enjoyed the frozen version with vodka sans the sticks.

I used to buy #10 cans of tang and drink it by the quart. Not sure why I stopped. But I seemed to have lost my taste for it.
