#FirstImpressions Of The Place Of Origin Snacks
Though we have mentioned what the company claims to offer with there range of snacks, which is taste and health, however, how can you be sure that all of these promises are justifiably kept? We here at Mishry grabbed a few of these snacks, and this is what we found after tasting each one of them:
1. Burhanpuri Gathiya
This Madhya Pradesh snack, which is a mix of wholesome gram flour and fresh spices, and topped with carom seeds, has a puffy texture and the addition of black pepper give it a fiery punch.
Place of Origin Burhanpuri Gathiya
Gathiya is a spicy treat from Madhya Pradesh made using besan (gram flour). This spicy treat is very true to what original gathiya tastes like. It is soft, crunchy and would taste even better on a rainy day with a cup of tea.
A puff textured snack sprinkled with carom seeds
2. Jamnagari Dry-Fruit Chiwda
This product claims to be a perfect balance of sweet and salty, which is what a chiwda generally tastes like. With ingredients such as black grapes, raisins, and cashews, this snack, apart from tasting good, is also quite healthy.
Place of Origin Jamnagari Dry Fruit Chiwda
Crunchy, and delightful, this is our most favorite savory snack from the three we tasted. It is light and the crispy pieces of wheat flakes are very small in size, making it different from other packaged chiwda namkeens available.
Sweet, salty, and loaded with dry-fruit to make it a healthier choice.
3. Kolhapuri Kaju Bhadang
One of the most popular Marathi snack, this crunchy snack is loaded with cashew, garlic, and peanuts. This is in fact one of the limited addition flavors that is prepared by the master chefs at the famous Amba Bhadang snack shop in Kolhapur.
Place of Origin Kolhapuri Kaju Bhadang
This is fiery and crunchy as promised. It is delicious and was loved by all the chili-lovers in the team. With a distinct garlicky-aroma, the bhandang has peanuts, cashew nuts and garlic in good measure. Because it is largely made up of puffed rice, the snack doesn’t feel heavy and maintains its crunchiness.

We liked all the flavors we tasted by the Place of Origin. The Burhanpuri Gathiya is seriously spicey so make sure you have a glass of water around!
