Diwali 2023 is around the corner and preparations are in full swing. This Christmas season, exchanging gifts – especially sweets or mithai – seems almost mandatory. People spend a lot of time, money and energy buying or making special treats to share with their loved ones. The mithai options are almost endless, with fusion sweets now rivaling traditional ones. But if you talk about the most common Diwali treats, soan papdi will definitely make the list.
This delicately layered sweet treat has its supporters and detractors. But it also has a rather unfortunate reputation for being considered undesirable. Therefore, people often tend to give it away instead of consuming it themselves. This topic has its own fan base. With Diwali approaching, social media users are flooding the internet with their take on the soan papdi versus kaju katli debate. Many have shared memes and witty comments about the status of Soan Papdi among mithai.
We have compiled a list of some of these posts from X for your reference. Check them out below.
