Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Turbo Tango Confirmed sighting: Turbo Tango
Posted: 09:33 Mon 22-Aug-2011. Price: 2.99/ 375ml. Location: Odeon, Dudley. Nutritional unusualness: "Nitro fuelled (tm) [...] Hold upright and squirt into your gob (and nowhere else!)".
"pj" reports: Weird but good! It's basically like a squirty cream nozzle that you fire into your mouth, it comes out as a foam then turns to liquid in your mouth and tastes like Tango. It's quite a big bottle, we got it on Tuesday and me and my girlfriend are still taking shots from it (I guess you could do it all in one but it seems more of a quick hit thing!)

...Thanks for splashing out on this "pj" - it's increasingly available in newsagents for less than 2 quid but here's how it looks on the inside if you're curious how the Propellant Gas (Nitrogen) fits into the equation. In other novelty beverages: "Lee Maguire" spotted a whole new range of Frijjs in Covent Garden Tesco, but has yet to confirm if they taste similar to their previously Simpsons-branded equivalents, while older drinkers now face a baffling choice between Foster's Gold (apparently "Young men strive to create the right impression at social occasions and Foster's standard can format isn't meeting these needs"), female-oriented Amina or Carling Prime ("the first credible range of beers for women"), or 6% ABV Crabbie's Black, "targeted at a slightly older more demanding male audience the newly identified 'Ginger Connoisseur'".

Comment: It is £1.50 in Superdrug at the moment. McColls have the new Mars Bar on sale too. It's crap and I will go no further than that. http://www.fdin.org.uk/2011/08/mars-launches-new-triple-chocolate-bar/

McCoys Ltd Edition Pickled scrumion crisps are great however. Pringles take note.... http://www.mccoys.co.uk/#/range/

Comment: I am searching for this Turbo Tango. Always a fan of Tango. I saw an advert for this today on a telephone box. Made me stop and look. So, it is jsut Superdrug you get this?

Comment: no I'm fairly certain they're going to roll it out into more shops, it's just they've started advertising it early?
Posted: 16:58 Sat 27-Aug-2011 by "Lee" # permalink comment
Comment: Yeah, and there are also YouTube videos going on about it on the official Tango page. To those who know what it tastes like - is it anyhthing like ordinary Tango Orange?

Comment: yeah, it's normal tango

Comment: dont bother getting this. its just plain nasty. it tastes like a cheap orange drink thats been rolling around under the seats of a hot car all summer. absolutely vile. its expensive too and you cant get it all out before the propellant escapes. waste of time, just bypass this and reach for ur bog standard tango instead.

Comment: Turbo Tango foams up to drink it. Does it remind anyone over 30 of Cremola Foam
