Rumours that Kurkure contains plastic are completely baseless & malicious.

leave a comment »

This kurkure plastic burning rumor has been going on for quite a while now but it is completely untrue.

The reason it burns like plastic because it contains carbohydrate in the form of corn starch and 30% oil, which causes Kurkure to burn.

For that matter try burning any kind of namkeens or gol gappas, the result would be the same. The information shared here is, therefore, totally baseless. AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Science) has also issued a letter saying that they have not issued any such chain mails. For info, visit http://bit.ly/Kurkure-FAQ.

Now, pepsiCo will take strict legal action against unscrupulous elements spreading these rumours and has also issued a public notice in this regard. Please visit http://kurkure.co.in/CautionNotice.pd

Enjoy Kurkure and Do not Spread Rumors!

The New Kurkure Family and the Kurkure Plastic Rumour

leave a comment »

Kurkure is one of the most famous snack brands in India. People of all ages enjoy this snack as a combo (right from chai to fried rice) or as a snack itself. Brand Kurkure has always been known for its sumptuous flavours and innovative ads. The credit of which goes to the Kurkure brand team. However, Kurkure did have a dark phase where there were rumours about Kurkure containing plastic. Rumours are always rumours and they are never true. Like it is with Kurkure, the Kurkure plastic talks are just baseless. People spreading Kurkure plastic rumours do not understand that Kurkure is a fried extruded product which contains a high amount of oil. Any product which has that level of Oil or fat will burn e.g. Namkeens, Fried Papad, Matri, Khakra etc will also burn as such products have very low water in them which is as low as 2% or even less. These are all dry products with oil which makes it good for burning.

That’s all about the Kurkure plastic talk, let’s just talk about the Kurkure snack now which is available in a variety of regional as well as contemporary flavours that are loved by both young and the old. My sister and granny both just love this snack. The former enjoys it with her lunch while the latter enjoys it with tea. All in all, we just love this snack in our family.

Juhi Chawla had been the brand ambassador for Kurkure since many years now. We loved her style, her quirkiness, her attitude in all the Kurkure ads. But she has now given way to the new Kurkure family. Sadly, she is not a part of this family now, so no more Juhi in Kurkure ads. The new Kurkure family is a family of 6 members who will represent their love for the product.

Following are the names of the new Kurkure family members and their real names:
1. Social Butterfly – Played by Farida Jalal
2. Chupa Rustam – Played by Boman Irani
3. Perfect Bhabhi – Played by South Actress Ramya Krishnan
4. Bollywood Banker – Played by Kunal Kapoor
5. Bahu Remix – Played by Parineeti Chopra
6. Bhukkad – Played by Shivansh

The names of the new Kurkure family members are really interesting and so are their intro ads. I wanted to share this post with my readers from a while now but just couldn’t spare myself some time for the blog.

Following are the intro ads for the new family members, which one did you like the most:

How Do You Eat Your Kurkure Snack?

with 2 comments

How Do you Eat Kurkure? You must be thinking, what am I talking about here. No need to scratch your brains on it. I’ll tell you what I am talking about.

Kurkure snack has been available in the Indian market, since 1999. This tedhe snack has won a million hearts both the young and the old. I guess many of you, love snacking on Kurkure while watching TV, journeying, etc. Whatever the reason may be, Kurkure remains one of the most delectable snacks of all time.

Kurkure Masala Munch

Kurkure Masala Munch

There are different varieties of Kurkure snack available today, right from the Kurkure Masala Munch to the new Kurkure Ingredients of India (available in 3 different Dal flavours). But, the most interesting part about Kurkure is…can you guess? This probably answers my question, ‘How Do You Eat Kurkure?’.

The most interesting part about Kurkure is that Kurkure is one snack which you can enjoy directly from the packet in which it is packed or you can use Kurkure as one of the ingredient to make another innovative snack of your own. How cool is that? I have shared some interesting Kurkure recipes right here on my blog, too. You can check it out here: Kurkure Recipes.

So I asked some of my friends, how do they eat Kurkure. And I got the following answers:
1. Kurkure with Chai (Tea)
2. Kurkure with Ketchup
3. Kurkure and Nachos
4. Kurkure and Egg Fried Rice
5. Kurkure and Dahi
6. Kurkure with Mango Slice
7. Kurkure and Green Tea

Some are really very odd combinations, but, some are interesting though. Definitely worth a try, atleast once. I personally prefer Kurkure Masala Munch with Mango Slice. It tastes just awesome, believe me. You will love the combination, if you are a mango lover.

So tell me, ‘How Do you Eat Kurkure’? As a snack or as an innovative snack of your own. Would love to hear from you!
