I’m not sure why I find Indian cookies amusing, but I do.  Let’s be accurate.  It’s not the actual cookies — they’re delicious.  I find the packaging and marketing of them amusing.

  • I love the wholesome boy on the Parle-G package.  He just screams “I’m round and healthy, because Mummy feeds me Parle-G with every hug.”
  • You can successfully market anything, even “Dream Cream” cookies if Shah Rukh Khan must be eating them all day in his mansion.
  • In the ingredients/nutritional information for the Good Day cookies, it lists how much fat, sugars, and “energy” are in every serving, measured in kJ.  Energy? So you could develop a next-generation fuel cell based on these cookies?
