Bombay Sweet Shop is ushering in the holiday season with a touch of nostalgia and a dash of magic through its collaboration with none other than The Archies. As December unfolds with festive gatherings and the joyous spirit of Christmas, Bombay Sweet Shop presents a delectable collection inspired by The Archies, a forthcoming Netflix film by Zoya Akhtar. This collaboration aims to transport you back to the carefree days of childhood, filled with laughter and the merry mayhem of Archie, Veronica, Betty, Jughead, and their gang.
The Archies film, set in '60s India in the fictional town of Riverdale, explores the lives of the distinguished characters like Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Reggie, Ethel, and Dilton. Through the lens of the unique Anglo-Indian community, the film delves into themes of friendship, freedom, love, heartbreak, and rebellion.
The Bombay Sweet Shop x The Archies Christmas Collection introduces inventive treats infused with an Archies twist. From Archie's Peppermint & Pecan Barks to Veronica's 3-Layer Chocolate Fudge, Jughead’s Sour Cream & Onion Potato Salli, and Betty’s Choco Plum Cake Balls, each treat reflects the essence of the beloved characters. Ethel’s Spiced Guava Cheese Barfi, Reggie’s Choco Marzipan Bon Bons, and Dilton’s Nana’s Coconut Ice also add layers of nostalgia to the holiday experience.
These delightful offerings are not just limited to individual treats but extend to thoughtfully curated gift hampers, such as the Riverdale Snacking Hamper, Sweet Love Triangle Hamper, and The Archies Gang Hamper. Available for pick-up at Bombay Sweet Shop locations in Byculla and Bandra, Mumbai, as well as for delivery across the rest of Mumbai and select areas in India, this collection ensures a Christmas filled with nostalgic decadence.
The Bombay Sweet Shop x The Archies Christmas Collection is a delightful intersection of cinematic narratives and festive sweets, seamlessly blending the realms of food and film against the enchanting backdrop of Christmas. Inspired by The Archies, the collection not only pays homage to the unique Anglo-Indian world depicted in the movie but also infuses the holiday season with the whimsical charm of Riverdale. Each treat in the collection serves as a delicious cinematic bite, embodying the personalities of beloved characters. This collaboration offers a unique and immersive experience, inviting enthusiasts to relive the magic of childhood through the lens of The Archies while indulging in festive sweets that capture the essence of the season.
