Moon shine?

Moon shine?

That stuff looked pretty weird, but it tasted JUST FINE!

80's advert jingles I can remember, but remembering where I put my car keys 10 minutes ago? - not a chance

Um Bongo was delicious! i wonder if there's a web site (like AQuarterOf that deals with retro sweets), that deals with retro carton drinks instead!

Did they ever drink it in the congo or was that just a big marketing ploy?

I believe extensive testing did indeed prove that it was too fruity for crows.

i always thought it was

"its just too orangey for crows"

i thought it perhaps stated that crows were incredibly adverse to the colour orange. variables gentlemen!

I don't get this. It's obviously done by the people who make ("made") Um Bongo. The video on the YouTube channel looks contemporary, and shows people clutching cartons of Um Bongo. So they're evidently on the very brink of bringing it back anyway. So what do they need the signatures for?

(Did it actually ever even go away?)

Surprised they dont bring it back, with lots of retro things currently 'in' at the moment bringing back Um Bongo i'm sure would be a huge hit.
