I remember when they would advertise Tang as the drink of the astronauts. I also remember getting the little plastic moon buggy on one of the jars. If I remember right, grape was not the best tasting, orange was awesome!

I remember my sister having slumber parties in 1969 and we would have tang and bisquick for breakfast!

Purple tang was the best!!! Do they still even make the orange tang anymore?

I've been ordering Grape Tang from Amazon for several years now, and it's as good as you remember. Here's a link. http://www.amazon.com/Tang-Drink-Grape-24-Ounce-Canisters/dp/B001FA1KQC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=grocery&qid=1252180871&sr=8-1

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG (TANG WAS NEW) WE COULDN'T AFFORD IT AND THERE WAS ANOTHER BRAND (A TANG COPY). WE'RE TRYING TO REMEMBER THE NAME. IT CAME THE SAME WAY, A POWDERED MIX, IN THE SAME KIND OF PRINGLE SHAPED TUBE (BUT HALF THAT HEIGHT). CAN ANYONE REMEMBER??? IT MAY HAVE BEEN A GROCERY STORE GENERIC. WAUKEGAN,IL...SO POSSIBLY CHICAGOLAND AREA. COULD HAVE BEEN PIGGLY WIGGLY, EAGLE OR KROGER

Sue : I believe the Tanglike product was called START... I think the jingle was "The right way to Start your day"

Tang is still on the market, and can be bought in many supermarkets ( Wal-mart, Food Lion, Giant's, Weis's). Although they still have they refreshing Orange flavor; the two flavors, Grape and Graprfruit, are no longer sold in stores.

The orange TANG is still sold in stores like Wal - mart, Food Lion, Giant's and Weis's; but the classic flavores of Grape and Grapefruit are no longer sold in stores.

DATELINE 1970: In the midst of the moon landing craze,a TV commercial for TANG first aired on Saturday mornings. It featured Ron Dante of The Archies singing a catchy tune called DO THE MOONWALK, and showed kids doing this strange walk.

I remember the Saturday morning commercial w/ the alien going to Earth to get orange and grape Tang for a bag of moon rocks. We always had orange Tang for my older brother, and grape for me. Along w/ some Pop Tarts or Cap'n Crunch and it was a nice sugary start to your day!

Found the second TV commercial for Tang with the Moonwalk song (sung by Ron Dante/Archies). Several kids are shown, in space suits, Moonwalking against a moon/space backdrop, the Eagle spacecraft in picture. Commercial aired on the "Archie Comedy Hour" from 2/28/70, CBS-TV.

To Ron Lambert, do you have a video of that commercial? Or do you know where I could find it online?

Lisa: The Tang commercial I mentioned on March 7, I saw on a stream, searching different sites for any Saturday morning memorabilia. I only saw it once, then moved on. It appeared to be on old film. The cartoon funhouse from the Archie show appeared a moment, then went black. It was a weird moment, like I was in second grade again, watching it. I had scanned nearly three dozen sites in the process, I forgot which one the commercial was on. However, I do have, obtained through a private collector, the complete "Heckle & Jeckle" cartoon show from 1/31/70, with the first Tang/Moonwalk ad. The kids are shown, in ordinary clothes, moonwalking on a grassy surface. Ron Dante/Archies sing the jingle. There are private collectors who obtain old TV shows on film (kinescopes) with original network commercials, which are in public domain. Shows are reproduced on VHS or DVD and sold. I am only a collector, not a seller. Unfortunately, YouTube does not have these, and I don't have equipment to do it. Sorry.
