Cineworld Has Stopped Selling Tango Ice Blasts And People Are Kicking Off
For so many of us, sipping on a cool Tango Ice Blast is an integral part of the cinema experience, but that could all be about to come to an end - well, at Cineworld, anyway.
The cinema chain has said goodbye to the iconic fizzy drink in favour of an Icee, which is made by Vimto, and sounds virtually the same as an Ice Blast.
But, as you can imagine, the news hasn't travelled well, and cinema users are p*ssed at the thought of having to make the switch.
In fact, people are so p*ssed that a hashtag and a Facebook group have been created, demanding its return.
The creators of the Facebook page Keep Tango Ice Blast At Cineworld confirmed the devastating news, writing: "It turns out it's something called Icee that is starting to replace Tango Ice Blast at Cineworld Cinemas and feedback is it's not good!
"Let's fight to keep sipping on Tango Ice Blast at Cineworld, jump on their social media channels and let them know #BringBackTangoIceBlast!"

Understandably, Cineworld visitors are now mourning the loss of the classic cinema beverage, with many airing their grievances on social media.
One fairly emotional fan wrote: "I am a HUGE slushy fan and I just have to say that Tango Ice Blasts are literally my favourite slush of all time, they're worth every penny and I always go out my way to buy one at the cinema, I literally cannot explain how much I enjoy and love them and if they ever left me I might cry."
While another distraught customer said: "I went to Cineworld the other day and they still had the Blasts there. So glad that I got to try it before it went."
A third added: "If you get rid of Ice Blasts there's no point going to the cinema. That's all I go for so byeeeee cinema."
A spokesperson for Tango told LADbible: "Unfortunately Cineworld have made the decision that they will no longer sell Tango Ice Blast moving forward. As a proud family business, we are disappointed but accept their decision. Fans of Tango Ice Blast will still be able to find us in Vue, Odeon, Empire, Showcase, Reel and many independent cinemas."
They added: "Some of Cineworld's sites have moved over to the new supplier already, with the full roll out happening over the coming weeks."
RIP, Tango Ice Blasts.
