Thaggu Ke Laddu kanpur Reviews
There is not a single person, even close, whom we have not cheated !! Jun 15, 2012
This is a sweet shop which is very famous in Kanpur. Has multiple branches across the city.
The name of this shop "Thaggu ke laddu" is in Hindi and literally means "Cheat's laddu".
This shop also has a tag line to their brand name, which is - "Aisa koi saga nahi jisko humne thaga nahi". This also is in Hindi and means "There is not a single person, even close, whom we have not cheated !!"
Not that is weird, isn't it? :D But their sweets are amazingly superb. Hundreds of people visit this place daily and buy sweets even when the seller openly says he cheats everybody. Now, that is epitome of honesty and confidence.
Now let me tell you something about the sweet itself. A "laddu" is a ball-shaped sweet popular in South Asian countries including India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh as well as countries with immigrants from South Asia. Laddu is made of flour and sugar with other ingredients that vary by recipe. It is often served at festive or religious occasions.
Another product at this shop is "Badnaam kulfi". "Kulfi" is a popular frozen dairy dessert from the Indian Subcontinent. Basically, an Indian derivative of ice-cream but very distinct in taste. What's important about this shop's kulfi is that "Badnaam" means "Infamous". And yet again, it sells like anything. It is the best kulfi I have ever tasted.
