Our Review Factors

What were we expecting from Go Desi Popz candy? We were looking for a lip-smacking blend of flavors with a pleasing texture. The price and packaging were also taken into account. 

1. Flavor

Sweet, tangy, and a bit tarty, this is what we expected from the imli variant. As for aam, a sweet, natural, and fruity taste and a raw, sour, eye-twiching flavor was anticipated from kacha aam. 

Overall, we gauged whether or not these tasted fresh, natural, with a rounded flavor profile. 

2. Texture

Candy-like hard, jelly-like soft, or fudge-like chewy? How were these Popz?

3. Other Parameters

Under this parameter, we gauged the price, packaging, shelf life, and some other non-tasting parameters like appearance and aroma.

The following section details our experience with these lollipops.

1. Imli

Price & Packaging

Main Ingredients

Jaggery, tamarind, edible salt, cumin powder, curry leaves powder, chilli powder, refined sunflower oil, stabilizer (INS 414). 

As claimed, these are devoid of refined sugar and preservatives.

These are individually packed and sealed with a thread.

Taste & Texture

Before we dive into the tasting, we’d like to highlight that the wooden sticks were quite sturdy and the Popz had stuck well to it. 

The Popz had a soft, chewy bite. The bite had some tamarind threads that added a unique texture. It had the typical stickiness that imli candies usually do. Taste-wise, this was tangy with a bold spice. The earthy warmth of cumin was popping through and the subtle sweetness tied all flavors together.

This was sweet, spicy, and tangy.

Taste & Texture

Soft, chewy, with a slight stickiness but lickable- this best describes the texture of Go Desi Popz. Flavor-wise, the fruity flavor of a natural, ripe mango was prominent. Additionally, there was also a spicy, zingy flavor which was balanced by the sweetness of jaggery. The chilli heat hit us with sweet and tangy flavors.

All-in-all, this was a burst of flavors.
