    Is Umbongo still about?

    They drink it in the Congo apparently.

    But has it gone forever, or is it hiding in Farmfoods or the like?

    Not seen it in the supermarket for years it seems.

    Whether this is still going I'm unsure.

    It does still exist, I bought it quite recently (well a couple of months ago anyway). I'm pretty sure I got it from Morrisons so it might be worth checking if you have one nearby!

    I'm sure I've seen it in home bargains??? Did I dream that?

    It's still available, bought it in asda recently.

    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!
