After idli popsicles, chocolate and strawberry dipped samosas go viral

The idli popsicles that have gone viral recently have had several takers, but that can’t be said for the latest internet food fusion fad.

Social media users across the spectrum were taken aback after watching a viral video that shows samosas dipped in sweet chocolate and strawberries, and netizens reacted to the bizarre merger with a mixture of recoil and confusion.

Expressing his shock in words, industrialist Harsh Goenka tweeted the video with the caption: “Seeing the idli lollipop circulating on social media was ok, but this one.” The video has garnered over 24,000 views so far.

In the 18-second clip, a person is seen showing off varieties of samosas, which include versions dipped in chocolate and strawberry flavors and a third variation with a sweet jam filling inside. The last one presented is a desi samosa with a tandoori paneer stuffing.

Clearly unhappy with these merger attempts, many have turned to social media to voice their opinions. One user even wrote: “What no cheese? Is it even a legitimate street food? “
