Putiram Sweets is synonymous with 'Raj Bhog' (enlarged and enriched version of Rosogolla) and salty food. The word 'Raj Bhog' literally means 'royal meal'. This is so named because it is a quintessential sweet and prepared in a grand way. A divine odour is emitted from the petals of roses, which are then specially processed with about fifteen different ingredients. Then it is boiled thoroughly. It is more than a normal Rosogolla in a container of syrup. This makes it 'Raj Bhog' in the real sense of the term. 'Putiram Sweets' has virtually made this 'Raj Bhog' and 'Dal Puri' as his forte. It goes without saying that 'Raj Bhog' is an unparalleled sweetmeat of Bengal of which she is justifiably proud.
- This is not the fried, salty and hot stuff that flashes in one's mind at the utterance of the name. 'Chop Sandesh' is an unique sweetmeat but resembles a chop apparently. Hence, it is so named.
- It is flat and looks akin to a biscuit and tastes very similar as well. But it is a type of 'Sandesh'.
- Aam Sandesh is very palatable. The word 'Aam' means mango and the sweet is so named because it tastes and smells like a ripe mango.
