|Tang Instant Breakfast Drink |
was invented in 1957.
Back in the days, Tang was known as the orange breakfast drink of choice for the astronauts. NASA served the space travelers Tang Instant Breakfast Drink because the space shuttle water was so nasty, Tang helped camouflage the taste.
Tang was another one of those drinks you never found in our home -- it was on that list of banned foods such as fun sugar cereal, Shake 'n Bake and Kool-Aid. My mom had a thing about certain packaged foods.
I suddenly have an urge to pick up a canister of this amazing citrus sweetness, yet feel as if I haven't seen it lately. I remember trying it once at a friend's house way back in kindergarten. I loved it. It was way better than ordinary orange juice. Even Mrs. Brady thinks so. Check out one of many Tang commercials featuring Florence Henderson.
I grew up with Tang and so did my kids. Bought some for the grands, a few years ago and they loved it, too!
Big fan of the orange out of this orbit stuff. BTW...made you blog of the day.
I haven't had Tang in YEARS...since I was a teenager....but I still remember exactly how it tasted.
Man, I made this SO many times as a kid and loved it.
Oh, how the years go by.
I used to love to eat Tang dry, my Grandmother always had a jar of it.
I can't look at Tang the same way anymore. Not after using it in so many chemistry labs.
We had Tang growing up, and Kool-Aid too! I think I was raised on sugar! Does anyone remember the Married With Children episode where the kids made Tang sandwiches? "you have to pinch the edges so the tang doesn't fall out!" I don't think Peggy Bundy ever turned on the stove!
Tang was great. I even bought it for my kids once in a while.
Tang was the HOTTEST thing for a short while! We couldn't wait to have some of it...
