Tango …Dance the Day Away!


The aroma is a very pleasing blend of different fruity scents all mingling together. I smell apple, tangerine, and maybe some acai, among other things that I cannot pinpoint. The cocktail of fruity perfumes creates a very appealing aroma that smells fantastic and natural, a perfect blend for breakfast. There is nothing overly artificial, and no off putting traits that really stick out. A very well executed aroma.

I hate drinking non-carbonated liquids from cans for some reason. I’m not really sure why, but I’ve never been able to drink anything without bubble from anything but a cup or a bottle. That’s why, before drinking it, I poured tango into a 16.9 oz water bottle. What I saw was pretty scary; the juice was a deep, swampy green color that is in no way appealing. Yuck. Anyway, I pressed on, and drank it with little hesitation.

While the combination of several different flavors worked for the aroma, when it comes to taste it really just makes a confusing clusterfuck of different flavors all coming at you at once. It’s not bad, but the different flavors could’ve been balanced much better. For instance, when you first begin drinking, the flavor of apple and acai is prominent, while orange/tangerine flavors take a back seat. About halfway through, the apple flavor gets lost amongst a backdrop of elderberry, and the orange and tangerine flavors seem to be losing focus to guava. Everything is a bit too powerful, making it easy for flavors to get either lost or become too apparent, throwing off the initially delicious balance and turning it into a soup of different fruit flavors.

The kick is surprisingly solid for a juice. My kick came about 20 minutes after finishing the can, and stuck around for about three and a half hours, no jitters, and tapered off gently without crashing. I definitely recommend Tango as a breakfast drink, as the energy blend would be very potent on an empty stomach and a low energy level. And no crash means it’ll get you to work, give you enough time to get started, and wear off about the time your body is natural awake anyway.

Tango sells for about $1.99 on store shelves, around $1.30 on Hansen’s terribly ugly online store, and for $.70 if you can find it at your local Big Lots, which is where I got mine. Each can is two servings and 15.5 oz, making its SRP a little bit higher than an average energy drink.

Final Words

Tango is a decent overall concoction. The aroma is delightful, the flavor is a mixed bag, the kick is solid, and the price is average. If you’re looking for a decent morning energy drink and live near a Big Lots, check into it. If you ever run across a can in a gas station and just have a hankering for a fruity cocktail drink and a craving for energy, give it a shot. I wouldn’t recommend buying it from Hansen, as you have to buy a case of 24 for over 30 bucks.


  • Delightful aroma
  • Flavor starts out pleasant enough
  • Solid kick


  • Every swig tastes worse than the one before it
  • Disgusting swampy green color

Score: 7.4/10 (Good)

Aroma: 8.75/10
Taste: 6.0/10
Kick: 8.0/10
Value: 7.0/10

    I found out it was green by spilling it on my blue carpet. When I looked down to clean it up I couldn’t find it. So I proceeded to pour it in a glass. I love it. The flavor, the color, and the deceiving purple can. Sometimes I wish they had just the juice without the energy.

    Another option to have a secure home is to change your lock rather
    than install a new. Usually a security code is used to open these kinds of locks.
    These companies may present specialized talent and gear needed for the work.
