Um Bongo Juice Review

Um Bongo Is Back! woo hoo!

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!

Um Bongo is set for a big comeback, you may have already seen it on Heston Blumenthal’s TV show in December!

I don’t know about you but i loved drinking this as a child, my mum used to buy us the small cartons of it and i remember as a young girl it tasting so fruity and refreshingly good! What i remember the most is the television advert that they did, it was so colourful full of funny animals

So when i received an email inviting the boys to taste the new Um Bongo I couldnt say no, I was secretly hoping that I would get to drink it all to my self and found myself looking forward to the carton to arrive.

We received two 1ltr cartons of Um Bongo Juice, one original tropical and one orange flavour.


One mouthful and memories of my childhood came flooding back, I was singing the song and my mouth was having a tropical party along with the pink hippo and the cheeky monkeys.

The boys loved the drink as well and asked for more. Both drinks are tasty and juicy and very flavoursome.


We definitely give the juice drink a big thumbs up

  1. Thank goodness we don’t get Um Bongo in Switzerland as it would make up 100 percent of my diet. I adored the stuff as a child.
