Paperboat Drinks; Reviewing Memories.

So, just about how many of us have obdurately held onto a few pleasures, which time and again, transcend you back to the vivid & hazy memories of “uniform pinafores, tennis shoes, dusty basketballs, chapped knees, lost water bottles, that pedagogue we all were scared of & secrets in the school bus?” Do I see a smile?? Oh yes! Please read on..

I’m sure all of us have those few magic paraphernalias which stimulate that nostalgia. For some, it’s the smell of bread baking, for some the smell of wet earth, for some it it’s a charm bracelet & for some it’s a retro song. 

While, I have literally tens & tens of stuff to remind me of childhood, there are but only a few things to remind me of our vacays in India. Like, Papa’s handmade card for my birthday, which I would have been celebrating in India during our vacay ( Which never came on my birthday anyway & came 3 days after papa arrived to India, to escort us back ), Hajmolas, Golas, Chaats & Jaljeera. 

Hajmolas are these little button sized chewable tablets, which make you pucker like crazy. Golas are crushed ice Popsicles with syrup. Chaats are sweet-savoury assortments. Jaljeera is a cumin drink, much like a palate cleanser & an aid to digestion.

Imagine the happiness I felt, when I saw “Paperboat drinks”. They have a very apt liner which says, “Drinks and Memories”. This stands staunchly true, when you gulp down those first mouthfuls. Apart from the super cute matte doypack with a spout, the names and their pictorial representations were just really the start. The true conundrum lies in picking your favourite, choosing a few to take back home, leaving the rest on that shelf with a heavy heart. Just how, pray tell me how, does one choose between good memories? How does one choose between reliving a giggle with a cousin, whilst tasting what Jaljeera is for the first time & reliving the excitement of purloining your grandma’s coins for Golas? 

I’m a heartfelt hoarder when it comes to “Paperboat”, I’m compulsive buying by the tens. I, get mum her favourite memories & i get me mine. Slowly, both of us have started exchanging memories now 😁😁 

  

  
My favourites are;

  • Jaljeera 
  • Kokum
  • Kala khatta
  • Tulsi tea( mum’s favourite  actually, this was what papa had concocted up for her, when she first landed in Saudi Arabia) ❤️❤️

By that, it doesn’t mean that, i don’t fancy others. Why, I do.. But when these are around, it’s really hard to overlook them. 

  

  
  
Brief insights into the product: 

  • They taste amazing great, all of them. Period. 
  • They are packed with benefits for you, like Kokum helps in cholesterol management, anti-inflammatory etc. 
  • The are priced at Rs.30/- , which let’s face it, is pretty dead cheap. 
  • They are great during travels, so convenient to carry around. 
  • The matte doypack with the spout, is just super quirky cute. Look at those pictorials!! 😍😍 
  • They are preservative & artificial flavours free.. 💃🏻💃🏻
  • All are 250ml pouches.

Hmmm.. Yep!! That’s that! Im relishing a nice Kokum now, what about you? 

Do leave your comments about, whether you’ve tried Paperboat drinks & how you feel about them. 


P.S: This in no way is a sponsored article, the unbiased opinions and views expressed here are completely my own.

P.P.S: I really, would have loved this to be a sponsored one though, because my stock’s depleting & I’m literally craving to taste their new kid on the block “Anar” (pomegranate), & it seems to be found nowhere😱😢

“knock knock!! Paperboat are you listening??”

  2. Though I have never tried them-(-I live in a remote corner away from civilization LOL :D) I feel they are cool.

    Hazmola you said were chewables? Nope–I feel they were suckables–succulent tablets–they were no fun if you chew them–too much too soon lol 😀

    Wonderful review. Thanks for sharing.

    LOve and light ❤
