Do you still get excited finding a packet of phantom cigarettes or pan pasand toffees in a store? We too! Nothing can beat the thrill of still finding a few of them in some corner of the city once in a while. These food memories definitely make us feel glad to be a part of that generation who had tasted the coolest of food products ever. All of these candies have always been everybody's favourite and sipping on Bantas and Frooti was definitely a thing. Here is a list of food memories every 90's Indian Kid would relate to:


1. Phantom Cigarettes

You don't need a light for this one. Let's pretend to look cool while pretending to smoke this sweet cigarette - Accept it! We all have done this once in our lives for sure.



2. Pan Pasand Toffees

Perfect candy after a relishing meal. Forget about the "saunf and chinni" - Pan Pasand was the best alternative - still is!
