Challenging Ferrero Rocher…
I love ferrero rocher. Its my Favourite chocolate given anyday from a list however there are some awesome things that lived in the past that will beat the crap out of ferrero rocher and snicker bars big time. Right out of your local chennai hood you can pick from one of these.
A few prominent ones i could recollect, add more to the list if you can come up with more.
P.S. Stick to candies/chocolate/sweets only and exclude bubble gums, snacks etc., another time on this…
Then Mittai – Honey candy in english, small white ones sold for 5 paisa and big red ones sold for 20 paisa. The name is misleading because it does not have any honey on it but it has sugar syrup and a little bit of minty flavour on it.
Kamarkattu – Made out of jagerry this hard candy is not only tasty but a good deal too. You pay 50 paisa to get one and there is a ten paisa iinside the candy that you can get back after you chew the candy off.
Strong Mint – The classic menthol flavoured peppermint candy. Nothing beats this macho down in times.
Pulippu Mittai – A very salty candy with orangish lemony flavor that happens to be a pick for carrying women. General recommendation for fatigue, giddiness and even otherwise a great thing to hog on. And yes if it was independence day or birthday this was the best thing to buy since its 5 paisa a piece.
Inji Marappa – Ginger Candy made of juice extracted from Ginger. Real spicy and sweet flavoured too. Available in plenty at bus stands and railway stations.
Gajeera – Im not sure if this is how its pronounced. Its a more cheaper version of something like the badushah sweet. Made of wafer like biscuit soaked in sugar syrup. Its not like a sweet but more of hardened candy the size of a standard Nutrine Chocolate.
Nutrine – Chocolate, classic chocolate in plain wrappers. No more, No less.
