The start of the New Year comes with the challenge of following resolutions but now you can slash out the most difficult one on that list with a sweet hallway pass. Bringing you all the excitement of mithai but without the guilt is Bombay Sweet Shop’s all-new Cheat Sweets collection.
Made using 100% vegetarian ingredients and only natural sugars like dates, jaggery and coconut sugar, this new offering is a cheeky loophole for all your sugar-related New Year resolutions. With this collection, Bombay Sweet Shop has reimagined Indian mithai without refined sugar.
The menu features Coffee Milk Cake, an amped up version of the OG milk cake with a cup of joe, taken to the next level with a mix of cashews and charoli for crunch, jaggery and coconut sugar for a deep, complex (and good) sweetness. This one is surely an addictive treat that promises to boost your mood.
Next up is the Power Barfi - eat it for breakfast, eat it during breaks or eat it when the universe hands you too much! These power-packed barfis contain jaggery, dates, cashews, almonds, pistachios, coconut sugar, figs, puffed amaranth, and all the crunch (from sesame, poppy and melon seeds) - brought together with a touch of warming cardamom.
To add to all that refined sugar free goodness is the Chocolate Khubani Peda that comes with a layer of chopped apricots sandwiched between dark chocolate peda made with milk and cream, and topped with a sliver of apricot, garnished with blue cornflower and edible gold dust. It’s easy on the eyes, and definitely easier on the soul.
