Memorabilia-X: Paan Pasand

How many of you remember Paan Pasand - the betel leaf flavored sugar boiled candy that tasted distinctly like our Indian 'paan'? Honestly, no imported confectioneries/chocolates can ever beat those unique candies! Just thinking about them makes my mouth water... even after all these years!



And do you remember their TV Ads? Some of them were seriously rib-tickling! Two super classics that I still remember were the 'shadi aur tumse' one, and that 'apni biwi par hukum chalate ho' one! I found 4 sets of their Ads on YouTube... sharing them with you all... these are real treasures from the days gone by!

Here's more in Memorabilia and in Videos!

I do. And thanks for the nostalgia :)

Those were the days, the good ol’ days: when ads used to be sooo creative, that we – kids then – remembered them years later. And went down nostalgia lane for them too!

Honestly! Still remember so many of those old ads...

Paan pasand is still the mouth freshener of choice to de-stink corporate mouths post sutta-breaks. When paan pasand cannot be had, tissue paper is chewed as a substitute.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Ewwww! Chewing tissue paper? Disgusting! One more reason to quit smoking!

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

I know, they should all quit smoking, those dirty smokers.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

"They"? Don't you mean "We"? :D

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

You know what they say- if you can't beat them, join them!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

I believe in "live and let live"! :-D

Roshmi Sinha said...

Hahaha!

I remember those ads! Hey, you still get Paan Pasand in some stores. My hubby got it from somewhere, and OMG - the sweet taste of nostalgia!!!

the little princess said...

Nostalgia!! I can feel that taste in my mouth right now! Oh..where can I get it..I need to eat one now!!

Chicky said...

Sreesha, I haven't seen them around for years. Will ask at the grocery store in my market. I remember the taste too! :D

Chicky said...

Hahaha! Princess, they were good, weren't they? If Bertie Bott made beans of this flavor, I bet they'd be a best-seller!
