Ending a two and a half years long "sweet" spate with Odisha, West Bengal on Tuesday won the Geographical Identification (GI) fight over one of the most popular candies in India-'Rosogolla'.

However, two years on, and West Bengal can finally claim that the rasgulla is officially theirs. "We are very happy and proud that #Bengal has been granted GI ( Geographical Indication) status for Rosogolla".

The GI authorities in Chennai ruled that West Bengal is the origin of the sweet. West Bengal have several candies on similar lines to that of rosogolla.

A geographical indication (GI) is a name or sign used on products which corresponds to a specific geographical location or origin (e.g. a town, region, or country).

A GI tag is a sort of intellectual property identifier recognising the origin of a product.

"After a thorough study, we found that the juicy sweet Rosogolla indeed originated from Bengal and not Odisha".

Renowned confectioner Nobin Chandra Das is known to have created Rosogolla in the 1860s.

The battle over the origins of this popular Bengali sweetmeat had taken a bitter turn when Odisha's science and technology minister, Pradip Kumar Panigrahi, set up several committees in 2015 to trace the origin of the delicacy.
