Plain, Radha priya and chocolate burfi samples were collected from three local markets of Varanasi (India). The samples were evaluated for their textural and sensory qualities. Textural properties included adhesiveness, springiness, cohesiveness, gumminess, chewiness and resilience.  Sensory attributes such as colour and appearance, body and texture, flavour, sweetness and overall acceptability of the samples were also analysed. The sensory scores for body & texture (6.78-7.14) of plain burfi varied significantly, (p samples signifies that chewiness (-0.839; pence (0.997, psiveness (0.976, ply correlated with moisture content of burfi.
