Price Is Not Premium Always.

Sweet Tamarind of Thai origin is such a delight, almost addictive.

On the left I have the box of 250 grams sold at the big supermarket in Kerala at a price of ₹150. And on the right is the same stuff of 250 grams bought here in Bangalore from Namdhari. For a price of ₹90.

Both are the same product, probably imported in bulk and packaged differently and priced differently.

Both taste the same! And paying 67% more for one doesn’t give me any satisfaction, even the false sense of consuming a high priced product.

Price is not premium, always.

Sweet Tamarind. The Scene is Anything But Pretty When Devoured.

It’s addictive, not only because the sweet tamarind is branded ‘pretty lady’, but it’s interesting too.

These are from Thailand and the ones available here are so bitter that eating them had the thrill of seeing water gushing out of salivary glands, of friends watching it, particularly girls when in school days.

It’s fresh too as the outer shells are intact. The only difficulty is that it’s tougher than removing shells of pistachios. And messy too.

Try it.
