History[edit]

For details see Birth of Rossogolla

During 1868, Nobin Chandra Das, who belonged to Kolkata, experimentally developed the first Rossogolla.[5][6] Nobin Das also was the first to mass-market it as a product. [7][8] Subsequently, K.C. Das, who was Nobin Das's son began to can the rasgulla which resulted in the widespread availability of the sweets. His son, Sarada Charan Das, incorporated and established the family enterprise as K.C.Das Private Limited and was primarily responsible for driving the explosive growth in business. In 1955, Sarada Charan had a major disagreement with his second son, Debendra Nath Das, which led to a permanent estrangement within the family.[9][better source needed] Debendra Nath Das chose to step out of the family and established his own Indian confectionery store in Kalighat , naming it as "K. C. Das Grandson" after his late grandfather.[10]
