I was looking through some articles on The Huffington Post the other day and came across a recipe for Tang toast. No, I don’t ever intend on fixing this, but it got me thinking about Tang.
I haven’t thought of this powdered, instant breakfast drink in years. I remember my grandfather loved Tang. I’m talking late 1950’s and early 1960’s here. I remember it being an orange drink.
Because I loved my grandfather, I wanted to love Tang too but I really didn’t all that much, in fact, not at all. It tasted like weak orange juice to me.
Now this I kind of remember from years back. NASA used it on John Glenn’s Mercury Flight, so some people thought it was invented for the space program. It really wasn’t. It was just a bad tasting, powdered breakfast drink. Sorry, Grandpa.
I found an old Tang commercial on YouTube. Here’s Bugs Bunny pretending to like Tang.
Sorry to Bugs Bunny too. I won’t be walking down to the corner of happy and healthy (Walgreens/Covington) looking for a jar of Tang. No. I. Won’t. I don’t like the stuff. No. I. Don’t.
