Where can I get tang?

Or is it even available anymore? (Need a bit of American culture after last night's wonderfully Swiss evening.)

Hmmmm....the last shuttle trip just ended and now you put in an order for Tang? Seems like you missed your chance for delivery.

Re: Where can I get tang?

I have 3 pouches (peach flavor) left that I brought home from my last trip to Jamaica. The expiration date says Jun 11....but I'm certain, that they're still good. You're more than welcome to have them if you're interested.

Can't help you with Tang, I'm afraid - but I have recently found a source for Cremola Foam

Currently out of stock but you could register your interest. Don't worry if they it's a crank call. Explain you want it as a joke or something and they're sure to oblige.

I'm afraid that's where my mind was also.

Would you like orange tang, or do you prefer the poon tang instead?

Re: Where can I get tang?

Tang is widely used in India so a lot of times you find it in Indian Markets around the area. I know in Basel I can still buy it at my local Indian Grocery market (although choose not too ) I think all they have is the orange kind available the last time I checked there.

If you get desperate and you're not able to find it around your area, I'm happy to post it for your tasting pleasure...

Re: Where can I get tang?

I only know two flavours: poon and orangu.

(i.e never heard of it.)
