During our childhood, we all had a list of foods that we absolutely loved to relish. Be it a packet of chips or a yummy scoop of ice cream - there are so many treats that were among our childhood favourites.

The video was shared on Instagram reels by popular content creator Amar Sirohi, who goes by the handle @foodie_incarnate. In a short span of 24 hours, it has already received over 664k views and 22k likes. In the clip, we could see the entire making of orange popsicles in a factory. Right from the mixing of the popsicle solution to the freezing of the lollies, and then packaging it and sealing it in packets to be boxed up and sold in the market - the video captured it all.
A flurry of reactions poured into the comments section of the video. Some people were quite intrigued by the making video and wanted to know more about the factory. Others were disgusted with the use of artificial colouring in the orange popsicles. "Never gonna eat this again after watching harmful colours and additives," said one user. "How is the government allowing factories to run like this? Thank you for showing this! Absolutely unhealthy and extremely harmful," commented another.
