Pass Pass Pulse Candy – Our Review Factors

The candies we have eaten growing up were typically sweet or tangy. What’s unique about Pass Pass Pulse is the center filling. It’s not a chewy, jelly-like filling. Instead, it is loaded with a lip-smacking masala

The taste, price, flavors – whether or not we could taste the fruit flavor and the ratio of sugar to the masala, are all discussed in Team Mishry’s Pass Pass Pulse candy review. 

1. Taste

Could we make out the taste of the fruit as per the name tag? Or is Pass Pass Pulse just a sweetened candy? How tasty is the masala centre?

2. Balanced Flavour

Was the sugar to masala ratio adequate? Was it chatpata or not?

3. Price

Candies and toffees are priced anywhere between 50 paise to Rs 5 for a unit. Are the Pass Pass Pulse candies priced competitively?

The green on the wrapper matches the color of this Pass Pass Pulse candy. When held against the light, we could clearly see the center filling. It was a mix of salt, spices, and condiments.
