90s were simply amazing and the era is remembered for so many reasons. One such reason is the availability of rare tasted candies and bubble gums, most of which are now extinct. All we had to spend was 50paisa or 1rupee to buy our favourite candy. A chocolate bar worth Rs. 10 during the 90s was a rich man’s diet. Nevertheless, do you still remember their unique tastes and does you tongue tingle for a bite again? Take a look at this 'nostalgia-loaded' post on 10 chocolates and candies that only kids of 90s will remember and travel back to the golden times:
1. Kismi bar: That iconic taste of elaichi definitely tingles till date in the mouth of the kids of 90s. Now getting hold of a Kismi bar is beyond imagination.
2. Polo: The perfect blend of sweetness in this 'mint with the hole' is still a hot favourite amongst kids who are grown up adults now.
