Tastes of States
My first impression of TOS Snack Box – Multi States –
1. Halwa – Taste of Karnataka (30 gms)
It is from the state of Karnataka. It is made of pure ghee, sugar, wheat, and nuts. This packet stays best for 30 days from the date of packing. If you love the taste of pure ghee, this one is surely for you. It was fresh and appropriately sweet according to my taste.
2. Ratlami Sev – Taste of Madhya Pradesh (50 gms)
Everyone knows about Ratlami Sev, it is one of my favorite namkeen or snack. This one also tastes authentic and fresh, just like ratlami sev. The only thing which I find different from the ratlami sev which we eat here in Rajasthan is that this one was little spicy. The reason behind the less spicy sev might be that everyone can enjoy it. People like me who love spicy sev can also enjoy it just like the ones who prefer less spicy food.
3. Sonte – Taste of Karnataka (50gms)
Sonte is snack from Karnataka, which is made of sweet potato and that’s why it is little sweet in taste. It is made from sweet potato, chili, and gram flour. I personally love snack which is spicy and salty, so this was least favorite one from all the snacks of the box. It stays best for 30 days from the date of packing.
4. Appalu- Taste of Andhra Pradesh (50 gms)
Appalu is crispy and crunchy snack from Andhra Pradesh, one of my favorite one from the multi-state box. Main ingredients of this snack are – rice flour, chana dal, til, garlic, jeera, kadipatta (curry leaves), red chilly powder, turmeric. I love having perfectly fried crunchy snack during my tea-time, this is exactly that snack. Every member of my family loved it, so I think it will suit everybody’s taste.
This particular snack out of all was made by a home cook Ms. Manisha. Yes, they promote home cooks, especially who specialize in their regional specialty.
5. Kelapappdi (50 gms)
Kelapapdi is another favorite from the box. As the name suggests it was made of raw banana, rice flour, black pepper, cinnamon, clove powder and black salt. I love it personally, it is almost similar to kela chips which we are another delicious alternative to potato chips according to me. Crispy, crunchy and spicy as well.
My final words on TOS Snack Box –
TOS Snack Box is full of regional delicacies and a perfect blend of tastes. I feel they could improve on their packaging, by making it more attractive. Some people might feel the quantity of some snack is little less according to the pricing. They should consider of increasing the quantity. I would totally recommend this box, it is a tasty and delicious box which will introduce you to various regional delicacies from India.
This box is priced at Rs 245/- (net wt. 465 gms). You can order it through their website http://www.tastes-of-states.com/ or if ordering from Mumbai, you can also call on 8828033111 . They also have an Instagram page with the same name.
