Kolkata Sweet Shop Makes Sandesh To Boost Up Body Immunity

According to the sweet makers, the ingredients used to make the Immunity Sandesh will boost up the immunity of the body. Also, they have made the sweet without using any sugar or jaggery. They have used Himalayan honey instead. As per reports, the makers claimed that honey will help the herbs in retaining their nutrients. On the other hand, sugar or jaggery might decrease the efficiency of the herbs. One piece of this Immunity Sandesh comes at just ₹25. Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick is also delivering the sweet through its website. For delivery, a pack of 9 sweets will cost ₹830. The charges for the sweet is much higher online than in the shop, however, the guys are providing free delivery all over India.

What Else?

About a couple of months ago, Hindustan Sweets, another popular sweet shop in Kolkata, had come up with a sweet named Coronavirus Sandesh. It was a carmine-hued dessert in the shape of coronavirus. Though netizens had mixed reactions about this sweet, the owner of the sweet shop had actually started making it to spread awareness of COVID-19. The coronavirus sweet, and then the Immunity Sandesh, aptly prove that Kolkata leaves no scope in experimenting with sweets. No doubt, the city is the most popular mithai hub in the country.
