Rosogolla pride West Bengal's


Bengal granted Geographical Indication status for Rosogolla says Mamata Banerjee

After two and a half years, the spat between two states Odisha and West Bengal over Rosogolla, a popular Indian sweet has finally been resolved.

However this is not the first sweet battle that Bengal has fought. We are all so happy. Rasgulla is superbly sweet, but in recent years, West Bengal and Orissa have been involved in a bitter fight to claim ownership of the sweet.

West Bengal's Education Minister Partha Chattetjee said, "Odisha unnecessarily raised a dispute over the issue". People of Bengal who are known to take their candies very seriously made a beeline for the sweet shops specially KC Das to renew their sweet affair with this iconic sweet.

While Odisha never approached the Registry for the GI tag, it has been making claims of ownership over the sweet. However the strongest contender remains the Mishti Doi (sweet curd) of West Bengal.
