Gunnay ka rus

After having my last glass of cold and sweet gunnay ka rus (sugarcane juice) under the bridge, I thanked God for His blessings and wished the drink be more widely available so that I don’t have to walk all the way to quench my thirst. And that’s when it occured to me, why sugarcase juice is not commercially available? Why don’t we have tetrapacks of this amazingly delicious drink in the stores? Is it too hard for them?

So, anyone from Shezan or Nestle care to make profit from this idea?

    Thanks GOD it’s not in packing. That’s why it’s pure & cheap.
    We are better with the 5 rupee not packed one than the pack one with 50 rupee tag on it & some ISO falana thousand bharam label & later on find that chemicals were used.
    We already have been deprived of pure water & air in Karachi. At least let Karachiites have gunnay ka juice is natural if not pure.

    I hope no evil mind business man is reading this.

    hhmm…. i know of people who were trying to mix coke and cane, but that was a university project. The result was delicious though :D

    Have you ever tried to carry the juice home? It darkens and doesnot taste as delicious.

    So if you pack it, you will not have a pure juice rather a preserved one with some chemicals to maintain the taste. And after a while you will realize that what you are drinking is not ganna at all, rather water filled with color, chemicals and flavors.

    Drink it fresh, at least its pure.

    No such technology has yet been developed to make this gift of nature available in packaged form. Only fresh juice can be bought from vendors. This is due to the fact of the high sugar and carbohydrate elements present in Sugarcane, which do not allow it to be preserved, even after adding preservatives like salt (which can only preserve the juice for a day at most).

    @patexpat… can say that about any fruit juice carried home….what about apple juice it is so widely available everywhere in packs and cans…..i think its a cultural thing or maybe because i like it fresh and cheap….with thick white surf floating on the top and lots of crushed ice….yammy!

    welcome back umar.

    i’ve always longed for ‘Gunnay ka rus’ here in England. Realli wud be super! readin over Adnanz comment, my nani is a doctor nd ther4 extremely healt conscious. When i was little, she found me drinking the juice with sum kinda fly inside 2. She went nuts. The next day, I came home 2 find chopped up sugar canes floating in sum purple liquid (sum kind of food disinfectant for hepatitis or sumthing). Needless 2 say, they tasted odd and I’ve been put off 4 life lolz. So like Umar said..plz sum1 be reading this..nd make nd export sum yummyness 2 my end!!

    In Singapore they add peppermint, or lemon and stuff. And it isnt fresh. They juice the sugarcane once a day.

    Not too bad though. Just not the ‘real’ thing :)
