Found 24th Mar 2012
Ok so this is not so much a deal since its not on offer

BUT

Way Down Deep in the middle of the night I went down to Asda and

Um Bongo IS BACK! YAY.
It's just like it used to be as well. Amazing to try this again. It takes you back to being a Kid in one sip of this wonderful drink.

Hopefully Asda will start to get the bigger bottles in as :-)

"So Way Down Deep in
the middle of the congo

We Rediscovered Passionfruits
And Apricots and mangos

Reminded what it tasted like
when they all danced the tango

We found the knack and brought
it back, THE ORIGINAL UM BONGO!"

Fill yer boots

oO It was revolting back then so I assume it still is YUK!!!

Yayyyyyy! I hope that means they bring the adverts back too

If you're getting all excited over Um bongo just because of the old adverts then I think you need to remind yourself of the even better Ribena ones with the very decent Fluke - Absurd soundtrack. For that reason I'm out...and...you're fired!

Trio adverts were great too.
Triiiiiiiiiioooooo!

This.

Don't mean to rain on your parade but it's been in Asda for ages. I got all excited few months ago thinking the same thing when my hubby who works in asda informed me they had had it for over a year lol.

Actually, when I did visit Congo on business several years ago, I looked for this in every local shop that I visited - and it was nowhere to be found - which I found somewhat disappointing. Nor had any of the local storekeepers I spoke to heard of it.

I therefore find the Um Bongo song's lyrics to be of questionable authenticity.

Kia O'ra anyone ?

This used to be good but so did Chelsea...


Way down deep in the middle of the Congo, a hippo took an apricot, a
guava and a mango. He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty
tango.

The rhino said, "I know, we'll call it Um Bongo", Um Bongo, Um Bongo,
They drink it in the Congo.

The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin. The
parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in.

So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle, They all
prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!

Heat added, used to love it

Watered down fruit juice for £1 is not a bargain...

makes sense.

Cheney!

Kia O'ra anyone ?



I'll be your dog

My profile pic says I am very excited about this....previously I could only find this in Portugal

tfish

makes sense.lots of congo folk in the country right about now



are there?

I can't remember it but I'll try it and probably never buy again.

It might taste the same but the price won't be the same.

Good to see this back, can't remember the drink, but remember the ads.If only they'd bring back cans of Quattro!

Knowing the "Oo-errr Missus" humour on HUK I thought this was Um Bonko :-)

Heat. For nostalgia and keeping it clean

Not the same. The amazon drink is just orange and pineapple with a little bit of banana. The real stuff is: Apple, Lemon, Orange, Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Mandarin, Apricot, Guava, Mango.

Does anyone remember that for a time you could get Um Bongo chew bars? The taste of the Congo in a handy bar for those times when a carton of drink was inconvenient. Surprised I still have any teeth left.

Good to see this, it been available in the rest of Europe this long time well Portugal anyways. Always stock the apartment when were over. They have 3 or 4 different flavors out there, dot kwo why it ever went away as its awesome

You know what we are all going to be singing for the rest of the day....

Been buying this from Sainsburys for my son's lunchbox for at least a year now. Different picture on the box though - £1.67 for 5 cartons & always on the top shelf often out of my reach:(

Got this over a year ago in Tesco.

Not to **** on your parade or anything.

i used to love this stuff.. but i bet they cant say .. um bongo, um bongo they drink in the congo any more !

like panda pops tasted good when young but terrible now

Just need Trio choc biscuit and I be complete

Cool, I'll mix it with my Bacardi.
