Multan Sohan Halwa: Which Brand is to Buy?
Multan is famous for its Sohan Halwa, a local sweet made up of milk, among other specialities such as saints, shrines, mangoes, and oranges. The most famous brand of the Sohan Halwa is "Hafiz", however, there are multiple vendors who sell the same brand but with varying quality to seize the opportunity coming out of the brand popularity.
There are other authentic brands also, such as "Abdul Wadood", but again more than one vendors sell this brand and you will only wonder which one you should buy without compromising on the authenticity.
Unique Suggestions: Never buy the Sohan Halwa from just another vendor with the name "Hafiz" or "Abdul Wadood" and never get trapped in their loud claims of being the only authentic Halwa. Try to keep away with their salesmen also, who wander all around and espeically keep an eye on toursits to sell their product. Almost all these Halwa are unauthentic and a waste of money unless you get a local advice from a trustworthy source.
It was a shocker for me when I saw multiple shops selling the same brand and claiming that they are the only original Halwa vendors. Finally, I had to settle down with my driver's choice, my luck....
Fun Alternatives: If you are compelled to taste the Halwa and also want to take it with you as a souvenir than buying one from Multan Cantonment Market is the least riskier of the options.
So, have a great trip to Multan with a wish that you find the authentic Sohan Halwa. And if you find one, please do email me, as I am a big fan of Multani Sohan Halwa....
