With the festival of Raksha Bandhan around the corner, shops are stacking a variety of sweet delicacies. A shop in Surat, Gujarat named ’24 Carats Mithai Magic’ is different from the rest as they are selling sweets of 24-karat gold for a whopping Rs. 9,000 per kg.
The sweets come with a covering of 24-karat pure gold leaf. When asked how the idea of using gold was arrived at, Prince Mithaiwala, the owner of the shop, said that they came up with it keeping the health benefits of gold in mind.
These sweets have been named ‘Gold Sweets.’ “In place of silver, we have used a pure gold leaf as it is beneficial for health. A number of people are buying it as Rakhi is just around the corner. It has become the centre of attraction for all the customers visiting the shop.
