Old images of things, places and people often take us down the memory lane, reminiscing the good times. Be it the cola candies or Paan-Parag toffee, we all miss the days when life was much easier, and the worries were really less.
A Twitter user has taken everyone back into nostalgia with a recent post. The image, shared by Twitter user Tushar, shows a tin of Dalda Vanaspati ghee and Colgate tooth powder. Both these packaging were used in the ’90s and their parent company have updated the outer appearance ever since.
"How many of you have seen these?" he captioned the image.
The post has received an overwhelming response with 24 thousand likes. Netizens did not leave a chance to share their part of nostalgia.
Sharing an image of Monkey Brand Black Tooth Powder, a user mentioned, "I have even seen this."
They also shared old images of Cibaca toothpaste, the trump cards and the name stickers for notebooks.
In our times, almost the same as yours these two brands had a close competition with the ruling ones - Dalda vs Rath & Colgate vs my nanihaal's chosen favourite during early 80s. Folks from Karnataka may figure out! pic.twitter.com/hQpnDnf4nm— Sandeep Raj Singh (@sandyrajsingh) July 8, 2020
One user also revealed the Dalda controversy, writing, "The infamous Dalda that fed beef tallow to millions of people in India. Yes I remember the whole scandal, including their office in CP."

A user also mentioned how the empty Dalda bottles were used to store kitchen items.
The empty Dalda container (plastic one) was later used by mom to keep 'Haldhi' or 'Tea leaves'🙂🙂— Pranjit (@pran_en) July 8, 2020

Dalda almost replaced Desi Ghee in late 1900s. If I remember correctly 1980s there was a furor about animal fat being used in manufacturing of Dalda or Vanaspathi as it was popularly known , and list its place in indian kitchens!Colgate tooth powder was poor man's toothpaste!— Bharatiya Hindu🇮🇳 (@Ramuiyer) July 9, 2020
I have used both. I vividly remember, Dalda was known as Vegetable ghee and used to be sold for around Rs. 4.00-4.50 a kg and desi ghee used to be priced at Rs. 9.50 a kg.— Rajendra Kumbhat (@Enraged_Indian) July 9, 2020
There is no doubt about the fact that whenever someone will post an old pic on Twitter, the social media will be flooded with many more similar memories.
