Kung Hei Fat Choy!
In recognition of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger in 2010, we celebrate eight (lucky Chinese number) tiger brands / trade marks

Legend in a jar. A secret formulation for a heat rub dating back to the times of the Chinese emporers. Herbal based, contains no tiger.
2. Stop! Tiger time

The “It’s Time for a Tiger” slogan has run since its inception.
3. Old School
