Tang drink mix

Post by Felidae » Sat Jul 24, 2010 7:09 pm

I have been trying to find Tang orange powder from the grocery stores in Helsinki with no success. Kraft Foods says that they don't import it to Finland, but some stores might import it themselves. Have you found it somewhere in Finland or even something similar to Tang? Behnfords has Kool Aid but it's 0.99 eur/piece, which is pretty expensive. Or if someone is ordering it from abroad, I would love to know the name of the company so I could order it myself too. Thank you for your help!

Buy some Citruunahappo and you can make CHEAP 'Tang' from whatever flavor you like.

Humungous SCAM!

You have some kind of imagination 99c is expensive and if they had some special import it would be cheaper? :lol:

I am Finnish so I am perfectly aware of the insane prices we pay here. It's my Canadian boyfriend who misses Tang and I would love to find him some. He doesn't let me buy him Kool-Aid because of its price, so if I would be able to find Tang or equivalent stuff here by myself, he would not know the price and freak out about it. At least beforehand. :lol:

Try ebay.de, or co.uk - they have american-products stores

I already tried amazon.de, but they won't deliver Tang to Finland. Will try ebay, thanks.

I'm waiting for the Iltalehti ripping headlines "Canadian chocked in a glass of juice after hearing price of Tang" :lol:

There's a good chance for that. :lol: If I can't find any other solution, will ask my friend to send some from Germany. They seem to have it there, at least in Amazon, so might be easier that way.

I think abusing friends is the easiest way out :lol: The eebers looks like you need to buy in bulk to make the price/shipping work.

Thanks Pursuivant, will have a look at that. Buying bulk would be ok if they just will deliver it here, at least would not have to order it so often.

Ref: thanks for the hint, was just pondering today whether those stores would happen to have it. Will stop by there this week.

And do try to take some good tasting orange juice and add 'to taste' some Sitruunahappo - available in decent sized plastic containers (eg Heino -- Sallinen is brand) for only a few Euros.

You will almost surely get something BETTER than Tang!
