Turbo Tango Aerosol Beverages: Spray It, Don’t Sip It

by Hazel Chua

It used to be that whipped cream packaged in aerosol cans was the only foodstuff I’d consider spraying straight into my mouth. It’s a common scene you see in movies when teenagers or kids go wild and just start spraying stuff all over the place.

If you’ve ever had the urge or desire to spray stuff into your mouth that isn’t fattening or cholesterol-filled, then you might want to give the Turbo Tango aerosol beverages a squeeze.

You might find yourself looking as happy as the guy in the ad above.

The company behind the Tango drinks, Britvic, revealed that they actually teamed up with 40 developers from all over the world to come up with the first ever aerosol fruit drink.

The drinks are actually targeted towards teenagers, who have apparently become bored with what’s available in the beverage industry today. At least, that’s what Britvic’s marketing director, Simon Stewart, said.

Lastly, probably more as a warning than an instruction, the labeling on each canister reads: “Hold upright and squirt in your mouth (and nowhere else).”

These Turbo Tangos are set to be released in the UK initially on August 19. The Turbo Tango is priced at £1.60 (~$2.50 USD) for each 375 mL of pure orange and fizzy goodness.

    It’s like CheezWhiz for soda pop. I can’t believe it took 40 scientists to come up with this.

    The Industrial Design of the package was developed independently by the renowned design firm Product Ventures. To arrive at this breakthrough and innovative design, Product Ventures tested dozens of nozzle configurations with the target demographic, namely teens. Ergonomics, mouth feel, appropriate aesthetics and flawless fluid dynamics were all paramount objectives that had to be resolved in the course of the development.

    The end result is clear evidence of the due diligence that was placed throughout the research, design and engineering process to ensure that this innovative technology was harnessed in an easy to use and intuitive fashion. Further evidence of the innovative nature of the package, the US Patent Office awarded the design a patent in which members of the Product Ventures design team are named as inventors.
