I hope i got the spelling right..... U guys know what i'm talking of. they're the jaggery and groundnut sweets rolled into balls. And rumour had it that they were rolled into perfect balls by being put in the confectonier's armpits and the guy would grind his armpits therefore rolling perfect balls. Gross, i know but hey, i'm just trying to keep the legend alive !

Never heard part of the legend- the armpit bit. Loved that stuff from Bhojas, Top Shop- Yellanhalli or Palada. Guess it tasted so good since we were always hungry. Tasted good when I ate it in 2004 and in 2005 when someone- maybe Tom Varkey brought some to the Atlanta Reunion.

Kamarakuts were also called kamrees, ( did you buy any kamrees ?)also available in palada & top shop were honey sweets which was orange in colour with a dry surface...

Yeah I remember then clearly cos they were my favourites! Now we do get them but not like the old type. Dont know if they still make the same one somewhere?
Yes Suresh I still run after the honey sweets when I go home! yummy!
Then there was the Pulippu mitai, shaped like an orange pod.
Then the bubble gum in a box containing 4 balls.
Then the Phantom ciggis! Cant get them now.
