STAR BITE: Mishti’s Kakima Locket Chatterjee and best friend Mimi Chakraborty are having a lip-smacking time. On Saturday, the two pretty ladies visited Mouchak at Golpark and enjoyed the fusion sweets with other customers. “There are so many responsibilities... being the Kakima, I’m so happy I am doing my bit. Mishti and Cadbury are dear to all Bengalis and nothing could be better than them coming together,” gushed Locket, feeding Mimi a Choco Puli.

Being Mishti’s best friend, Mimi of course got royal treatment.

“Best friend is a special bond and doing something special for my BFF’s marriage is a great feeling. Cadbury mishti khawa khawano is an integral part of this very special wedding,” grinned the Bapi Bari Ja girl.

SHOP talk: “It’s been celebration time at our outlets since the day Mishti and Cadbury got married! We are very happy that everyone in the city is so excited about this wedding. Our entire team has worked day and night for this,” said Sujoy Sarkar, manager.

Mahua

STAR BITE: Mishti’s Dadu Paran Bandopadhyay spent sleepless nights worrying about his grandson-in-law

Mr Cadbury’s “dark complexion”. But Cadbury has won him over with his “sweetness”. Mishti’s Bhaijee, Dwitipriya Roy, accompanied Dadu Paran on his usual rounds of checking out the grand celebrations at Sinthee’s popular sweetshop Mahua.

They were greeted by Cadbury Hide & Seek, a cute cuppa of sweetness. “I have no complaints about Cadbury, he’s after all our Mishti’s choice! All my apprehensions disappeared when I saw the glow on the couple’s faces,” said the head of the family.

“My Pishi is very sweet but Pishemoshai is my favourite. I have known him since my childhood. Ami toh roj-i Pishemoshai ke khai,” quipped Dwitipriya, a student of Class VI. A special chocolate mishti called Gopal was presented to Mishti’s grandpa as a blessing for the newlyweds.

SHOP talk: “We are happy to be a part of this unique wedding and have received a lot of support from everyone in Sinthee. I am sure everyone will bless the new couple after they try out the special Cadbury mishtis we have created for our daughter Mishti’s wedding,” said Dilip Kumar Pyne, owner.

STAR BITE: With 56 varieties of Cadbury mishti, along with signature sweet Hide ’’ Seek, Mishti’s Pishi Koneenica Banerjee and Kaku Pijush Ganguly were spoilt for choice at Nalin Chandra Das on Rashbehari Avenue. Amid all the confusion of the biye bari, the latest challenge for this duo was to choose the Cadbury mishtis they wanted to try! “The amount of Cadbury mishtis I am getting to taste is unimaginable. Though it’s Mishti’s biye, it’s me who is putting on weight, thanks to such a huge celebration. It’s evident that the couple are really getting a lot of blessings,” smiled Konee. “There are so many Cadbury mishtis here! Jerom Cadbury jomey thakey, ei biye- jomey gechhe. I am overwhelmed by the interest every sweetshop is showing to create such delectable sweets,” added Pijush.

SHOP talk: “We are excited to be a part of this gala wedding, which has become the talk of the town this wedding season. The 56 new sweets we have come up with for Mishti’s wedding will be made available in batches. All Calcuttans are welcome to enjoy the different sweets and bless Mishti and Cadbury,” said Tapan Kumar Das, partner.

STAR BITE: Mishti’s Mashi Manasi Sinha hasn’t had the time to dress up for the celebrations, what with all the wedding-related work and queries pouring in! On Sunday afternoon, mausi ji took a break from all the work and came with Mishti’s Dada Shaheb Bhattacherjee to Baguiati’s Shree Krishna. And then, it was time for sweet surrender, starting with Chocolate Rabri. “Etodin toh ghore ghore biye hochhilo Bangalider, eibar bairer jogot amader meyer kodor bujhlo. Cadbury is a perfect groom and this inter-cultural wedding was needed,” said Mashi dear.

“I am here to seek blessings for my sister and entertain the guests. Last year they were fighting, this year they got married — at least they are moving towards a happier future! Ekey oporey miley gechhe puro!” laughed Shaheb. “After Cadbury’s wedding with our sweet girl, he has completely melted. Bou ke peye jamai puro goley gechhe,” added Manasi.

SHOP TALK: “We feel honoured to be a part of this wedding. Even in future we would love to create new kinds of mishti to celebrate the union of this sweet couple. We worked round the clock to create 20 varieties of Cadbury mishti and the celebrations have been like a real biye bari,” said Jayanta Bagui, proprietor.
