Childhood is a time filled with wonder, innocence, and unforgettable experiences. Among the many things that make childhood special, chocolate holds a cherished place in the hearts of many. From sticky fingers to gleeful smiles, chocolate has been an integral part of countless childhood memories.

Social Nation: A fun chocolate memory that is close to your heart

Chef Nehal: I was 12 years old and wanted to make this biscuit and chocolate cake.   I used the Lindt chocolate bar my sister was hiding from me and made the dessert. As soon as my sister tasted it, she figured out that there was some commotion.  However, turns out the biggest thing was the mess I made in the kitchen which my mother later made me clean up. If I could, I would do it all over again.

Chef Harssh: The most fun chocolate memory that’s close to my heart is when I got to eat a bar of sugar-free chocolate 3 years after my diabetes diagnosis. I devoured every minute bite of it and I ate one cube only! It was the best thing I’ve eaten.

Chef Nehal: Coffee bite, my god does it even exist now? Nutties is also my favourite but I still buy it.

Chef Harssh:  I miss eating Melody toffee/chocolate very much.

The golden chocolates of the 90s

Ah, the 90s—a nostalgic era filled with cherished memories, including some delightful chocolate treats. Here are five chocolates from the 90s that we miss dearly and wish we could indulge in. 


Poppins were small, colourful, sugar-coated chocolate candies that came in a variety of flavours, including strawberry, orange, pineapple, and chocolate. The candies had a crunchy outer shell providing a delightful burst of flavours and textures.

Melody is another iconic chocolate candy that was immensely popular in the 90s and continues to be cherished today. It is known for its distinct combination of chocolate and caramel. What made Melody even more memorable was its jingle, Melody khao, khud jaan jao.
