The chocolate and its wrapper have changed, but the sentiment remains the same.

A chocolate which has been in the market throughout the generations has stood the test of time and it still remains a favourite with the masses, for it is economic, handy and on each and every celebration it is given to people as a small token of festivity or celebrations.

Now with the time changing rapidly, the quality and taste of the chocolate has changed. The chocolate is stickier, gooier and can be kept in the mouth for a longer period of time. The wrapper of the same chocolate has been given an uplifted look and it is now presented in the market with a very much hi-fi design.

In ma’s childhood days , her uncle used to bring two Cadbury eclairs for her every Sunday.

As a child myself, having two pieces of Cadbury eclairs or anyother would give me the feeling of being a king. I used to pop one chocolate into my mouth    on my way to school or while coming back from school and the other I would share it with ma and baba. Still they wouldn’t get more than half of the chocolate piece.

Sharing chocolates with friends or classmates is anyother thing which brings out few happy moments in each and everyone’s life.

Just imagine the happiness when someone comes to you and offers or gives you two chocolate pieces for it is their birthday or they have come first in the class or it is some very happy occasion for them.

Many a times it would happen that, we would treasure those chocolates as something more precious than any currency. Some classmates would have it during the recess or would have while going back home in the school bus and some of them would come and ask-“ae tere pass ek extra chocolate hai? Tu mujhe ek dega kya?” These line were in Hindi and they translate as-“Do you have an extra chocolate? Will you give me one?”  I would politely tell them no and off they would go to some other fellow to ask for. Though no one would share. Sometimes I think we all used to go to school for such experiences rather than for studying.

The cost has increased, but people still prefer the same. While everything has changed, the sentiment of people regarding it has remained the same. There are many varieties of chocolates available nowadays and the market is flooded with chocolates imported from other countries. Despite all these competitions, it remains number one in the market.

Sometimes old does remain gold.
