Who owns Rosogolla? West Bengal wins the misthi battle against Odisha

Finally Bengal wins 'Rosogolla war' over Odisha

One of the most popular Bengali candies, Rosogolla, has been the bone of contention between West Bengal and Odisha, as the two states have been involved in a legal battle over its origins.

"The GI authorities have ruled today that West Bengal is the origin of rosogulla", Sanjay Bhattacharya, deputy controller of patents and designs in Kolkata, told the Hindustan Times.

Bhubaneswar: West Bengal obtained the Geographical Indication (GI) tag for the origin of iconic sweet, Rasagola (known better as rasgulla elsewhere) from the union government on Tuesday. Mamata Banerjee took to her Twitter account to share the new saying, "Sweet news for us all". However, in its original application to the GI, West Bengal had sought the GI tag on what they call it as "Banglar Rasogolla" (Bengal's Rasgulla).
