It all started with a tweet in February when a Rola Cola fan asked Parle Products to bring the candy back to the Indian market. After more than six months during which thousands of people retweeted the demand, the biscuits and confectionary major has re-launched the product after a gap of about 13 years.
“YOU asked, we listened. India’s most loved cola ka gola is back with a bang! Get your pack today! #RolaColaIsBack,” Parle announced in a tweet on Tuesday.
When the Rola Cola fan first asked Parle Products to bring back the candy in February, the company replied to the tweet saying it was crowdsourcing opinions on whether to bring it back or not.
Now, using the hashtag #RolaColaIsBack, many users have shared their affection towards the popular Parle product.
