In Lucknow, over a dozen local bakeries and confectioners have come up with an innovative idea of baked and edible rakhis. This has seemingly clicked with the gen-next which is buying the  eatable rakhis in large numbers.

Coming in various shapes, hues and flavours, these rakhis are made of condensed milk, cream, sugar and edible colours. The lace for tying is made of chocolate frozen on silk thread, making it the only ingredient which cannot be eaten.

They come in many flavours - from dark chocolate to pineapple and strawberry. They are priced between Rs 20 and Rs 80 a piece.  

The edible rakhis are becoming very popular with young boys and girls who prefer to have fun this festival along with some 'pet pooja' too, said a shopkeeper in Chowk.
