Gerald Anderson loves the new Tang Sweet Orange
Gerald Anderson is proud to introduce Tang Sweet Orange to Mindanaoans. "This new powdered juice flavor from Tang is ‘timplang ato,’ using a special blend na ‘mas tamis ug mas lami’ created especially for Mindanao.”
While Anderson spent a few years growing up in the United States, he moved back with his family to the Philippines when he was 14 years old and considers General Santos City home.
Anderson has fond memories of growing up in Mindanao. "I had many fun summer adventures here: playing basketball with my barkada, jumping on my trampoline and riding my motorcycle."
Now a successful and accomplished actor, he built a home for his mother Evangeline Anderson in GenSan, where she is managing a farm that Gerald visits as often as he can.
"When we get together, we're happy just spending time and, of course, eating," said Anderson with a laugh. "We enjoy home-cooked meals and drinking Tang. With the launch of this new “Sweet Orange” variant that suits my Mindanao taste, mealtimes are even more enjoyable!”
"I think I like the new Tang flavor because it’s just right for the taste I grew accustomed to," he said. “If yung mga Bicolano mahilig sa spicy, kami medyo may sweet tooth. Gusto namin matamis! Tulad ng Durian, mangosteen tapos yung mga pasalubong like pastel at yema.”
Anderson is in good company since Tang Sweet Orange is preferred by 7 out of 10 Mindanao moms and kids. A study conducted by Mondelez Philippines (formerly Kraft Foods), reveals that the new flavor is preferred by moms and kids for its taste, sweetness, and appearance.
"Growing up in Mindanao, you can't help but develop a strong sense of pride for this region," said Anderson. "Tang is celebrating this pride by creating the Tang Sweet Orange flavor for Mindanaoans."
To come up with this new special flavor, a team of Tang food scientists were flown in to Mindanao to conduct on the spot recipe testing and shared them with locals to get their immediate feedback and gauge liking to best capture the taste that Mindanaoans love!
Tang Sweet Orange is made from world-class ingredients. It’s Halal-certified and available in 25 gram sachets for only P8.95 at supermarkets and sari-sari stores in Mindanao. Like Tang on Facebook (TangPhilippines).
