Um Bongo in Glasgow?

What are the chances of me finding this increasingly rare treat(!)in the city of Glasgow? I think I may have been given an impossible challenge to source a supply.

Can anyone help?

thanks:-)

Hi PC. I think you can still buy it at the likes of Asda (other stores are available) and Tesco. At least asda have it for delivery on their online store so take a look in there. 1.44 pounds a pack of 5 cartons. Its more sold as a kids fruit juice.

Ah thanks Ronaldo. I had been led to believe there was a worldwide shortage. I will give Asda a try. Thanks!

Hey PC not found that Um Bongo yet? LOL

If you like I can scour Perthshire for you and send a much needed missionary package to the wilds of Ayrshire.... :o)

Emergency supplies from Perthshire? I like the sound of that Fo, though I think I need to pursue a few more lines of enquiry yet. Just returned from Glasgow empty handed, but I did get rather sidetracked by a long lunch at Fratelli Sartis. I'll give myself another week to come up with the goods.

Thanks for the offer Fofo :-)

How is Sarti's these days PC?

Used to like it but have not been for ages and last time it was not good. Would love to think it has got better again.

Hi, Went to the one in Renfield Street which is the only one I know. Lovely meals had by all, though the 200ml bottles of coke are rather teeny and one is never enough. We spent rather a lot on drinks! Love the marble and chandeliers:-)

I wanted to try somewhere new today, but was outnumbered:-)

I give up. You'd think I was asking for the world but all I wanted was Um Bongo. I have searched in vain :-(

You can get it in Waitrose, or from Ocado:
