.....but in Sheffield we like to eat it as well.
Well 30 years later and the product is every bit as tasty as I remembered it, the packaging every bit as eye catching and the song exactly as I remembered.
So with it being half price in Tesco at the moment and with Hartley's bringing out "What’s Your Flavour Jelly Crystals" I knew instantly what we had to do..... we had to make Um Bongo Jelly.
The Jelly crystals come in twin sachets, you only need to use 1 for each jelly you make. Dissolve this in 300ml of boiling water.
Add to this 200ml of your favourite juice, squash or fizzy pop .... we of course added Um Bongo.
And that's it, pop it in the fridge, leave it to set and eat with your favourite Ice Cream. We choose some chocolate (Iceland) and some Banana (Ben and Jerry's).
The verdict - a huge thumbs up from everyone and certainly one we'll make time and time again.
Have you used Um Bongo for anything other than drinking? Would love to know what you made.
