Wrapping your mouth on a can’s lid and chugging that Romulan Ale is simple enough. So much so that some people are apparently sick of it. They want their soda drinking experience to feel new. And Turbo Tango could be just that alternative.
Made by Britvic, it’s your run-of-the-mill orange soda housed inside a bottle. Except it’s no ordinary bottle. Instead of sipping and gulping, you spray the carbonated drink into your mouth, just like you do with whipped cream and cheese spread (or hairspray, just in case you like the taste).
The Turbo Tango is a “nitro-fuelled” version of the original Tango soda that’s squirted onto your mouth in a blast of orange foam. We’re pretty sure you can snort it, too, although results are bound to vary (all of them, potentially hilarious). The container will supposedly include a “‘Hold upright and squirt in your mouth (and nowhere else)” warning — let’s be real, though, that’s not going to happen.
It comes in 375ml plastic bottles, with a flip-out spray nozzle up top for your consumption. They call it “soft drink meets squirty cream,” which is so ridiculous people will probably buy it for the novelty alone.
According to Britvic, around 40 researchers collaborated in coming up with this new product, which is supposedly the world’s first plastic aerosol drink. The Turbo Tango will hit UK stores on a trial basis this month, with a full 2012 rollout if consumer response is positive. Price will be £1.60 per bottle.
