Come summer and everyone looks forward to the King of Fruits – juicy mangoes. Tang, introduced last year in India through Cadbury India, part of Kraft Foods, has launched the thick Tang Mango flavour in India. Delicious, refreshing and rich with the taste of mangoes, Tang Mango will give consumers the experience of a juicy mango-flavoured beverage.
Convenient, affordable and available in delicious flavours, Tang provides mothers with an opportunity to make a quick, refreshing drink for their children by just adding water. Tang also contains vitamins A, B and C; and Iron that normally get depleted during the course of a hectic day in the life of today’s children.
Announcing the new mango variant, Narayan Sundararaman – Director, Powdered Beverages, Gum & Candy – Kraft Foods, said, “We are extremely happy to announce the launch of Tang Mango, the first product in the Indian powdered beverage category in a unique thick format. Our consumer research showed that consumers prefer mango drinks that are thick, pulpy and give them the mango flavour and experience. Tang Mango has been developed in line with consumer expectations of consuming a thick and juicy mango flavoured beverage.”
He further added, “We launched the ‘made-in-India’ Tang last year and the consumer response has been very good. We are working towards a bank of flavours that appeal to local tastes. We believe consumers are going to love Tang Mango and the experience that comes with it.”
Tang Mango will be introduced through a new TVC campaign. Developed by Bates, the campaign is based on the theme of “Surprising Thickness” creatively rendered as ‘isse jaldi se kha jao’– “you will need to eat this”, playing closely on the experience of consuming a mango.
Developed to suit the Indian palate, Tang Mango will be available in retail stores across the country in two pack sizes of 200 grams for Rs 40 and 500 grams for Rs 85.
