We love to indulge in different kinds of sweets on festive days. Diwali, for sure, remains incomplete without some delicious sweet treats on the plate. But we have our own preferences when it comes to Indian mithai. Some prefer the crispy texture of jalebis while others lean towards the soft and juicy rasgullas. Well, debates ensue when it comes to choosing favourites from the vast range of Indian sweets. To add to it all, Twitter India upped the festive fun during Diwali with a quirky debate on Soan Papdi and Kaju Katli on the microblogging platform.

Kaju Katli or Soan Papdi?— Twitter India (@TwitterIndia) November 3, 2021
The tweet garnered over 1,200 likes and nearly 400 users shared it via quote tweet. The question flared up a slew of responses from users. Some users at once chose one of the sides. While one side said, “Kaju Katli any time,” the other side responded with their love for Soan Papdi. A Kaju Katli lover suggested a poll for this question. They wrote, “This should be a poll for everyone to vote on. Kaju Katli for me. Every time.”
This should been a poll for everyone to vote on.
Kaju Katli for me. Everytime.— A (@A_A_Warda) November 3, 2021
Soan Papdi lovers did not lag behind to root for their favourite sweet. In fact, some users went ahead and described the "real" and "flaky types" Soan Papdi that was loved by many. Here's a user recommending Dhakai Soan Papdi to all.
Soan Papri, the flaky types, not the hard ghee soaked thing. Real Soan Papri will have each of its strands come out with every bite. Have you ever had Dhakai Soan Papri? If not, have it some day.— ????BongMafia????️ (@sandeeproy1) November 4, 2021
Another Soan Papdi fan resisted the "disgrace to a delectable sweet dish with such finesse." According to him, the perfect description of this mithai was "sophisticated fine layering of flakes, with fragrance, crackling seeds, just a few dry fruits, the best ones never so sweet, crisp, dry and melting in the mouth."
Am unwilling to accept such a disgrace to a delectable sweet dish with such finesse. Sophisticated fine layering of flakes, with fragrance, crackling seeds, just a few dry fruits, the best ones never so sweet, crisp, dry and melting in the mouth. I resist disgrace of #soanpapdi— Prabhat Sinha ???????? (@peekaysinha) November 4, 2021
A user made an interesting argument, noting how Kaju Katli doesn't last the cravings of Diwali night while Soan Papdi stays for days after the festivities.
Kaju katli tho raat bhar me hi khatam ho jati h.
Diwali k 4 din baad sirf soan papadi hi sath nibhati h.. pic.twitter.com/258By629HC— It's_me????!???????????????? (@Itsme58961876) November 3, 2021
Here's what another user wrote about their preferences:
Kaju katli - Jab koi de
Soan pap do- jab mujhe dena ho ????— Arj (@arju0197) November 3, 2021
A group of users couldn't decide against any of the two sweets. So, they found a way to support both of them. A user rooted for "Kaju Papdi."
