Orange Candy & Kaccha Aam Candies: A Blast from the Past: Reliving Childhood

Ah, childhood! A time of scraped knees, endless games, and pockets filled with sweet treats. Two candies, in particular, hold a special place in the hearts of many Indian kids who grew up in the 90s – the vibrant orange candy and the tangy kaccha aam candy. These weren't just sweets; they were taste bud time machines, transporting us back to simpler times with every lick.

The Pop of Sunshine: Orange Candy

The orange candy, sometimes called Narangee Toffee or Santra Toffee, was a beacon of sunshine in candy form. Its bright orange color, reminiscent of a juicy citrus fruit, was almost as enticing as the aroma that filled the air as you unwrapped it. The first bite brought a wave of sweet and tangy orange flavor, thanks to a combination of sugar, liquid glucose, and a touch of artificial magic. Unlike some chewy toffee cousins, this orange candy offered a satisfying hard texture, perfect for a long-lasting sweet sensation.

A Taste of Summer: Kaccha Aam Candy

Kaccha aam candy, translating to "raw mango candy," was a taste of summer captured in a candy wrapper. Unlike its softer counterparts, this candy boasted a refreshingly hard texture, perfect for a prolonged sweet and tangy experience. Don't be fooled by its green color – a playful nod to the unripe mangoes enjoyed during the hot summer months. Locally, this candy is also known as Kachi Keri candy, another name for raw mango. The candy offered a delightful puckering sensation, balanced by a subtle sweetness. It was a unique and refreshing treat, perfect for beating the heat and satisfying those sweet and tangy cravings.

Beyond the Candy: A Nostalgic Journey

These candies weren't just about taste; they were about experiences. The orange candy, often shared with friends during recess, fueled games of tag and hide-and-seek. The kaccha aam candy, enjoyed during scorching summer afternoons, brought a welcome burst of flavor and a reminder of mango season's approaching bounty.
