Everyone knows that one just can’t keep a Bengali away from sweets. But in the name of innovative sweets, a shop in Kolkata has reached new heights. 

A Kolkata sweets shop has gone viral for selling Bengal’s favourite sweet, sandesh shaped like the novel coronavirus. 

Not just sandesh, the shop has also designed cakes and cupcakes with exquisitely detailed icing and flourish to resemble the virus that has taken over the world.  

While this might seem a little unusual at a time like this, Twitter wasn’t amused. 

The West Bengal government had announced that sweet shops can remain open for four hours every day amid the nationwide coronavirus lockdown due to concern over wastage of milk and jobless staff.
