What I miss the most. 7- el Bonjus

Yes I do. I miss this chemical radioactive juice. It’s not that it’s natural, fresh or tasty. It has nothing to do with that. What I really miss in Bonjus pyramids is the savor that takes me 20 years back… I also miss its concept, with the Man2ouché.

… and this concept became my signature (or label) and trademark on ToomExtra! (“RODMAN2ouche w banjis”.. yeah “banjis” didn’t come from “bungee jumping”… duh).

Yes “Banjis”. Because  the Bonjus has several names in Lebanon. “Banjis”, “Bonjis”, “Banjous” or even “Banjouséyé” (yes believe me, I heard this one too). And the “banjis” always comes with a small straw: “chalumoné”, “chalamoné” or “chalumeau / chalumon” for the classy ones. Eh la2 3ayné, it’s called “paille” in french :p… see, now you have learned something from the internet :p

Anyway, the great thing about Bonjus, is that there has never been any TV commercial for it, but we all know what it is, we all call any juice pyramid “bonjus” and we all know it’s price! 250LL!!!
