Orange Bang! It's my favorite drink. Whenever, I can find it, it's what I order. I've only found two places around my home that sell it. One is an Chinese food spot & the other one is a mom & pop diner. The Chinese food spot only carries the small (not sure why) so, I can never get my craving fully resolved. The mom & pop diner offers a jumbo size where I'm practically swimming inside the cup. Good stuff!
The drink had a resurgence after the release of The Blues Brothers. In that movie, John Candy's police detective attends the film's pivotal fund-raising concert in order to arrest the performing band, but decides he wants to see them perform first and orders drinks for himself and the uniformed state troopers he is with, saying: "Who wants an orange whip? Orange whip? Orange whip? Three orange whips!"

John Landis, the director, mentioned this to Candy, who improvised the exchange.
