Oh Nano, Nano it drives me crazy
I really love what it does to me
Sweet, sour and salty
Nano, Nano, Nano, Nano
Out of curiosity, I recall buying a sachet of this candy once. The taste did not really stick to my memory. The jingle, however, remained ingrained in the collective consciousness of many '90s kids, yours truly included. I have always thought that the candy was a Filipino product, but surfing through YouTube proved otherwise: Nano-Nano is an Indonesian brand. It is a product of Nimm's, a subsidiary of the pharma firm Konimex.

Shown above is, the only available copy of the TV commercial, on YouTube. The Indonesian origin of Nano-Nano led many viewers to believe that the characters in this commercial sing in Bahasa Indonesian. Many commented that it was Bahasa Malaysian. A voice announcer named Harith Iskandar speaks into the end of this commercial. Hopefully in the future, an English version that was aired on Philippine TV surfaces on YouTube.
