It is a common tea partner that you will find at every tapri-wala chai stall. Today the market is flooded with brands offering different varieties of rusk, from jeera rusks to suji rusks.

Parle Premium Milk Rusk comes in a vibrant blue foil pack. Our review pack has a net weight of 200 grams (182 gm + 18 gm extra).
The first impression of these rusks was quite pleasant. All the rusks are baked evenly. None of the rusks in the pack were broken.
We examined the texture in two stages -as is and with a cup of a warm beverage. Before dunking, we tasted it straight out of the pack to check the original flavor and crunch. The crispness of these rusks is on point! It has a pronounced crunch in every bite.
Post-that, we performed a dunk test with a warm glass of milk. On dunking, we observed the rusk absorbs the milk well. It does not turn too soggy. The taste gets even milkier. YUM! On scanning the ingredient list, we found the presence of suji. Suji is commonly used to enhance crispness and adds a crusty layer.
These rusks showcase an intense milky flavor in terms of the overall taste. We loved the delicate sweetness of these rusks.
