My Story with Sattuz
Here, I’m gonna basically talk about the product SATTUZ which is the superhero of this blog.
It all began in this pandemic #lockdown 2020 Coronavirus thing Me being from Bihar and staying in Chandigarh miss a lot of food from my place one being the majorly was my favorite “Sattu”.
You won’t believe that I didn’t have sattu for 4 months in this lockdown as in from the month of February because most of the Bihari shopkeepers left for their home 🏠 and the local shopkeeper didn’t even know what is Sattu? 😭 😭
Scrolling down daily Instagram feed and posts and seeing other bloggers posting food and other recipes from Sattu would make me feel very low 😔 😔
I use to search for it like everywhere on social sites but I would not get it as it would run out of stock or delivery issues 🙄 🙄
But, one day I thought why not search it on Instagram as well and it all started from there, the moment I wrote Sattu on the explore page the first name which popped up on the screen was @SATTUZOFFICIAL from Bihar.
My view on product Sattu by Sattuz
I would give this product a 5-star rating for its outstanding packaging and variety of flavors they have launched. I am emotionally attached by this product as I am from Bihar itself and I would like to say that people who consume a lot of carbonated or caffeine drinks in their daily life they can switch to this healthy and traditional alternative ( sattu) launched by Sattuz. Mine favourite among all the flavors is the Jal Jeera sattu.Priyanka Bhagat
