SUPERB!

Summary

True to its name, we loved the cola inspired Hajmola. The rating is for the Dabur Hajmola Chatcola, Limcola, and Regular variant. We did not like the pudina Hajmola as much.

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, limcola, 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!

Dabur Hajmola candy is a chewable tablet that aids better digestion post large meals. Additionally, it may also provide relief from stomach aches due to flatulence or gastrointestinal issues. 

Made using a bunch of medicinal plants as recommended by Ayurveda in India, Dabur Hajmola can be consumed post-meals or at any time of the day. 

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

1. Available Variants

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

For our Hajmola candy flavors review, we tried four out of them. 

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 four 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 Limcola- amra, shweta jiraka, shunti, pipali, among others. Sodium benzoate IP is used as the preservative. 

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, limcola and chatcola variants use sodium benzoate IP as the preservative. 

Sodium benzoate is a commonly used food preservative that is listed as one of the ‘generally regarded as safe’ (GRAS) compounds by the United States FDA provided it is added at a concentration of up to 0.1%

Amra– Amra tree is a medicinal tree which is known as hog plum. This proves beneficial in aiding digestive ailments, especially hyperacidity.

Shweta Jiraka- Commonly known as cumin seeds, these have antiseptic properties and reduce bloating post-meals.

Shunti- Dry ginger is called a universal medicine owing to its versatility. It has been claimed to improve digestion, help eliminate excess fat, and process glucose in the blood. 

Pipali- Long pepper has carminative, stomachic, and laxative properties. All work towards better digestive health. 

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 four (regular, pudina, limcola, 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.

Pros

  • Dosage recommendations for adults and children have been provided.
  • Hajmola is prepared using a blend of Indian herbs and spices.

Cons

  • The pudina flavor felt flat. It wasn’t as intense as we’d like.
  • Out of the four we tried, the pudina variant was the lowest on spice.

Best Suited For

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.

2. Dabur Hajmola Chatcola Flavour

Flavor - 4/5
Aroma - 4/5

A cola-flavored digestive? Yes, please! 

Hajmola Chatcola is an Ayurvedic tablet that packs a strong punch of cola flavor. This punch is laced with some chaat masala

Pros

  • This variant has a nice hit of spice.
  • The cola flavor is BOLD!
  • The detailed ingredient list is commendable.

Cons

  • It is soft to chew.

Best Suited For

If flavor is what you’re craving, Hajmola Chatcola is a great low-calorie alternative to sugar-loaded fizzy drinks.  If you’ve tasted a cola-flavored popsicle, this tastes exactly the same but bite-sized.

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.

Pros

  • This variant does not use any preservatives, natural or artificial.
  • It does not contain any artificial sugars too. 
  • All Ayurvedic herbs (powdered) have been used. 
  • The spices pack intense heat.

Cons

  • These were overly salted. 

Best Suited For

This is a decent option for those looking to consume a flavorful churan. 

4. Hajmola Limcola

These digestive tablets looked almost like the other variants. It emitted a subtle citrusy aroma of lemons paired with the distinct chatpata Hajmola aroma.

True to its name, this variant showcased a pleasing flavor profile of lemon and cola flavor with a hint of pepper. Towards the end, the flavors of pepper and lemon take the front seat with a slight sweet and salty combination. 

Additionally, the tangy and sweet flavor of tamarind was also sensed on the palate.

Pros

  • Lip-smacking flavor profile. Delivers on the promise of lim-cola.
  • We appreciate the detailed ingredient list.

Best Suited For

The classic cola flavor paired with the citrusy punch of lemons, in a bite. Sounds appetizing? Then you’d relish this Hajmola variant.

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. 

Is Hajmola still a staple in your kitchen? If yes, what’s your go-to flavor?
