It is commonly said that Indians are fond of opulence. From jewellery to flashy cars, clothes to even phones – we love to go that extra mile for a dash of glitter on our belongings! Thus, it comes as no surprise that we don’t mind a touch of shine on our food as well. While silver varq was always a feature of traditional sweets, even gold-plated sweets have been trending in the recent past. A sweet shop in Nashik has created special gold-plated sweets for the occasion of Raksha Bandhan 2022, according to ANI. Can you guess what these sweet delights are priced at? Take a look and see for yourself.
