3 Hajmola Candy Flavours: Taste Test & Detailed Review

Take a trip down memory lane with Team Mishry’s Hajmola Candy flavors review. Do we still pucker up after popping one?

Known for their addictive chatpata flavors, Hajmola instantly brings back the good ol’ childhood days. Although these little candies made our eyes squint, we couldn’t help ourselves from popping a few post-meals. 

Initially, Dabur Hajmola was available in two flavors and two forms- original (regular) and pudina as tablets and hard candies. Later, we witnessed the launch of fun flavors including cola, anardana, hing, amrud, and imli

As kids, the concept of calories and macronutrients never really existed for any of us. We bet you didn’t know these were meant to be digestive tablets. Recommended to be consumed post heavy meals, Dabur Hajmola is a mix of traditional Indian herbs and spices that are known to naturally stimulate the digestive power. 

We cannot corroborate this claim, but we sure can tell you more about the taste, packaging, and whether or not it still makes our taste buds go POP. Read our Dabur Hajmola candy flavors review for more!

Here’s what you must know about these tasty digestive tablets.

3 flavors of Dabur Hajmola candy.

1. Available Variants

There are seven Hajmola flavors- amrud, chatcola, anardana, imli, pudina, chatpati hing, and the original. 

For our Hajmola candy flavors review, we tried three out of these. 

2. Available Sizes

These digestive tablets are available in sachets and small glass jars. There are four tablets in the sachets and 120 in the jars. 

3. Main Ingredients

Following are the Hajmola ingredients for the three variants we tried- 

Hajmola Pudina- pudina, amra, shweta jiraka, shunti, pipal, samudra lavana, sauvarchala lavana, maricha, shakara. 

Hajmola Chatcola- shweta jiraka, pipali, dhaniya, maricha, sauvarchala lavana, samudra lavana, extracts from dadima, and chincha.

Hajmola Regular- kshudha vardhak churna (marciha, shunti, pipali, nimbu saar, shweta jiraka, samudra lavana, shakara, nara sara) 

To simplify, Dabur Hajmola candies are made of culinary Indian spices and herbs which are commonly known as black pepper, long pepper, ginger, lemon, cumin seeds, sea salt, black salt, and sugar. 

The pudina and chatcola variants use sodium benzoate IP as the preservative. 

Dabur Hajmola Candy Favours– Our Review Factors

Hajmola is hands-down one of the easiest ways to relive your childhood which accelerated certain parts of our review. 

Taste and aroma being our primary parameters, we also considered the price, packaging, and aftertaste. 

Would we go back to this 90’s delight?

1. Taste

These digestive tablets are made using culinary Indian spices. Are they too spicy? Overly sour? Do these digestive aids ruin the mouthfeel?

2. Flavor

We tried three (regular, pudina, and chatcola) out of the seven available variants. Could we taste the labeled flavors? Was one distinguishable from the other in terms of flavor? Or were they too mild to spot the difference?

3. Aroma

Indian spices and herbs are aromatic! Since they are the key ingredients used, did they make their presence felt before the taste test?

4. Aftertaste

Do the Dabur Hajmola candies have a lingering taste? What happens when you bite into them?

5. Price

Are these digestive tablets priced appropriately?

1. Dabur Hajmola Pudina 

Flavor - 3/5
Aroma - 3/5

Hajmola Pudina did not make it to our list of favorites. The flavors of pudina and other spices were extremely mild. 

Pudina (mint) has an intense aroma. Widely used for culinary and medicinal purposes, mint often lends a lingering cooling effect on the palate. 

Hajmola’s pudina variant was low on this minty freshness as well as robust spiciness. This ranks third on our list.

This variant of Hajmola digestive tablets is best suited for individuals with a low spice tolerance or those who prefer a mildly flavored post-meal digestive aid.

A cola-flavored digestive? Yes, please!

3. Dabur Hajmola Regular Flavour

Flavor - 4/5
Aroma - 4/5

The original Hajmola flavor took us back to the 90’s. The flavor hasn’t changed a bit! Free of preservatives and devoid of artificial sweeteners, each tablet of the regular Hajmola candy has a power of 550 mg. Let’s read some more on these spiced digestive candies.

Which Dabur Hajmola Flavour Stands Out?

Hajmola Chatcola won us over. It shows a great balance between the cola and masala flavors. Although a bit soft, we liked how lip-smacking this variant was. We also liked the regular/original Hajmola.

Final Words

While we can’t say much about how effective Dabur Hajmola is in terms of aiding digestion, they are good enough to end meals with. 

The Chatcola variant was our favorite. It tastes like a cola popsicle with just the right amount of masala. 

The regular variant is for those who love testing their spice tolerance, whereas Hajmola Pudina is recommended for young kids or individuals that prefer foods with a low spice/flavor intensity.
