Glucose, cocoa-coated chocolate, white chocolate (cocoa-coated), chocolate bar, sweet biscuit, wafer, toast, jam, jelly, grease, mosquito coil, toilet paper, overcoat, car coat, cape, suit, jacket, blazer, trouser, gents shirt, underwear, brief, nightshirt and pajama, ladies blouse, shirt, shirt-blouse, jersey, pullover, cardigan, petticoat, undergarments including panty, toothbrush, spectacles and their frame, sanitary napkin, towel, similar items for children, playing card and locally-made toys.
