Did you hear chocolate? You heard it right. We are talking about a delightful choco treat. Try out the Chocolate Chip Falooda Gola, which is basically crushed ice mixed with chocolate syrup, condensed milk as well as chocolate syrup. A decent amount of choco chips as toppings makes it an even better combination. Another mouthwatering variety is the ice-cream gola. Dollops of ice cream forms the bottom layer of your glass, further, the gola is dipped into it.

Well, if you are one of the health conscious ones, here’s some good news for you guys. Some of these gola stalls use natural flavor and boiled water to make the syrups. Natural fruits and sugar are used to make these mouthwatering gola syrups.

But if you are the one who simply does not eat anything other than your beloved Kala Khatta Gola, then do not keep yourself away from the tangy and tasty gola.

But, of course, how can one forget the classic burst of colours over glistening snow? Yes, we are talking about the orange, pineapple, blueberry, mango, and raspberry golas that are a big hit amongst Mumbaikars and tourists.

So, go ahead and devour those juicy, icy treats. Summer won't stay for long!
