Indian sweets are very different. I haven't had enough of then to really know how to compare to something familiar. An orange flavored pan of sweets looks like a pan of not shiny jello with cashew nuts. The sweets may have various flours in them too. They are VERY sweet.
The best memory of past fourths for us is stopping early in the morning for fresh picked corn and then heading for San Clemente and the beach for an all day and evening party that ended with fireworks and sleepy children.
