90s Kids Will Remember: We Found Phantom Cigarettes, Fatafat & More Nostalgic Treats Online!

6303 Interested |

All the 90s kids will remember saving every rupee they could get their hands on to afford a monthly stash of Phantom cigarettes, buntas, Hully Gully and Fatafat. Sadly, as we grew up, these things disappeared from the corner nukkad shops, but we did a bit of research and found that you can now buy these treats online {sweeeet!}.

So, switch on Cartoon Network, binge on a packet of Chatmola and relive the good times once again.

Parle Poppins

Trying different colours of Parle Poppins and figuring out what flavour it was.. does this seem all too familiar? Buy a pack already and bond over Poppins’ flavours with your childhood gang {just like good ol’ days}.

Buy here.

Phantom Cigarette Candies

Phantom Cigarette Candies brought out the gangster in every kid. Wearing an imaginary fedora hat and having a Phantom ciggie between your teeth was how the cool kids rolled back then.

Not really into any of the Ayurvedic benefits of Fatafat, as kids we only cared about how good these God-sent candies tasted and running to the closest shop to buy some. If you were too broke, befriending any kid who had a pack was the way to go. Things were much simpler back then, no?

Kismi Toffee

Only Kismi Toffee could make elaichi taste so good. On birthdays, kids who brought Kismi {or Eclairs} to school were the boss for at least a few days {maybe longer if they distributed those Kismi bars}.

Buy here.

Paan Pasand

As kids, we’d any day prefer Paan Pasand over the change our parents got after grocery shopping. Secretly, we always hoped that the shopkeeper wouldn’t have enough change and would have to hand out these lovely toffees instead.

Center Shock Chewing Gum

Center Shock Chewing Gum made you squint and your tastebuds tingle like nothing else and that’s why almost every kid loved it so much!

Soft, sugar-sprinkled fruity Jujubes is what made our days as kids so much better {& Cartoon Network}. You were the happiest when your parents bought these for you after a lot of convincing and promises to always eat vegetables.

Contact Defence Bakers and Caterers to get your hands on a pack of tasty jujubes.


Whoever says that they can stop after just one pack of Chatmola is lying. These maroon coloured tiny balls are so addictive that only after having at least three packs can you even think about saying that you’re done for the day.

Buy here.


In this whole list, Nutties is perhaps the only candy that you might still find at the shops near your house {you have to be really lucky} but, for most of us, it’s been ages since we had these delicious chocolate-y balls. Order one {or 20} right away!

Buy here.

Swad Toffees

Yes, the packaging of Swad toffees is perhaps a bit unappetizing but what’s inside is pure gold. The toffee is supposedly a ‘digestive drop’ but, for most of us, it’ll always be the beloved candy we popped like M&Ms.

Buy here.

Mentos Marbels

Mentos Marbels has so many fruity flavours in just one pack! We kinda liked all the flavours –  watermelon, orange, mango or even guava – and refused to share these with anyone else

Contact them or click notify me on zopnow to buy Mentos Marbels once it’s back in stock.

Lotte Coffy Bite

As kids, we didn’t mind the funny spelling of Lotte Coffy Bite considering this was probably all the caffeine we were allowed anyway.
