Humko Binnies Mangta

(Translates to "we want Binnies." But the Bambaiya appeal can't be translated) Is Binnies chips still available? The jingle was catchy and consumed a few packets as a result. Uncle Chipps used to be the most popular chips in town. Now it is Lays, and deservedly so (though both now belong to the same stable after Frito-Lay bought over the brand).

Don't know the exact period when this ad was aired but Binnies chips was launched by Jagatjit Industries Limited (who also produce Aristocrat liquor) in 1988.

There's a strike on in the tea gardens. The government is planning a SEZ there. Therefore the Isspecial Cutting Chai for December 2006 couldn't be brewed in time (actually was a little preoccupied over the last month). Anyway, a compromise formula is being worked out and the tea should start flowing from the factories soon. The SEZ will produce processed tea, so say sources.
