Childhood memory refers to memory formed during childhood. There are some foods that are attached to a specific memory and testing them after years mesmerize our emotions. Food has always been the delighting factor in an otherwise colourless life. Foods always turns up to the most important and loved part of the occasion. Here is a list of some dishes that blend up warm memories:
Glucose biscuit and tea should be declared the national snack of India. As a kid we were not found a tea, we used to asked for it so that we could dunk our biscuit and its flavoring taste.
This was one of the best relief from the scorching heat when a game of cricket got over or when dad decided to reward us after solving mathematics problem on Sundays. That ice cream vendor’s bells still ring in our memories.
Whenever we used to gout for grocery shopping with our parents., jelly always come along in a bag. This sweet delicacy was a forever favorite and trying every flavor is mandatory.
Kulfi was the perfect break while we were busy being tortured by homework. As soon as we heard the ‘kulfi wala’ ringing the bell from far, there was a sigh of relief. We use to run towards the kulfi wala and he used to carefully open the box and take out the frozen kulfi from the mould.
The pink cotton candy used to light up our mood whenever we spot it in a fare or on the street market.
Barf ka gola:
From mango to kala khatta, slurping the ‘barf ka gola’ with your siblings and cousins is one of the best memories of childhood. Even today when we see a barf ka gola shop, the kid inside us can’t resist the flavourful ‘barf ka gola’ on a sweltering day.
Even before ‘swag’ was in fashion, sweet cigarettes for kids were the synonym for this word. Imitating our favourite Bollywood stars by these sweet cigarettes and then enjoying its candy-like taste are among the best childhood memories.
