If you are a mommy like me, you know exactly that a baby going through teething is no joke. Our babies get cranky, they often want to have those itchy gums soothed by pacifiers, or even toys. Well my little boy is growing a new tooth again and though he is pretty sport about it, it still makes him drool alot and want to bite on toys.
This week, I was privileged to join my other blogger friends to the launch of Tang’s new product. They introduced something really interesting… A TANG powdered juice formulated for the Mindanao palate. They brought their own food scientists to study what a Mindanaon wants in their orange juice. 7 out of 10 Mindanaoans seem to agree that they want a sweeter flavor in their orange juice. So, if you like your orange juice sweeter, guess what, you can now buy the TANG SWEET ORANGE. The only catch is, you can only buy it in MINDANAO groceries and sari-sari stores!
Think about this — An international brand willing to formulate a new variant just for Mindanaoans … willing to adjust to the taste and the culture of Mindanaons??? I say, “Its just super cool!!!”
Well, my son is a true Mindanaon. He was born in Mindanao and most likely will grow up in Mindanao. Therefore, it will be highly possible that he will develop a Mindanaon palate. Good thing that TANG Sweet Orange it is fortified with Vitamins A,B, C, Folate and Iron, and is Halal certified (meaning clean food and organic). So I have decided to be creative, and use TANG Sweet Orange to make a Baby Teether suited for my Joshua.
It is suggested to mix one 25g sachet of TANG Sweet Orange with 1 Liter of water. I still find it very sweet. So, to adjust to my little one year old’s taste, I mixed the sachet with 1.5 Liter of water. Then I started storing it in Ice Plastics and placed it in the freezer overnight. This TANG Sweet Orange teether is ready to soothe my baby’s gums. Also since its summer, it is another great popsicle to cool off the hot sunny days!
