I bought this at the Middle Eastern market. The people there are super nice and they have a zillion foods I have never heard of. This is one of them.
I know "Dry Brown Curds Snack" doesn't sound too appetizing to most people. But I am, as my BF says, the person most likely to order the weirdest item on the menu. If it is novel and doesn't contain meat, let me at it.
So this was right up my alley. It looks a bit like fruit leather and claims to be made of yogurt. So far, so good.
(Sour) it says on the label. They should issue some kind of stronger warning, I think, because this may well be the sourest item on the planet. Super sour gummy worms taste like cotton candy compared to this.
You can see from the photo the size of the sample I took. Unfortunately I tasted it while I was on the phone with the BF. I immediately began making weird noises and gasping, having lost the ability to speak.
Once the initial shock and pain of my salivary glands shriveling up passed, I was able to tell him what happened.
The stuff was so sticky and a piece stuck to my molar, but I was actually afraid to move it, lest the sour flavor blast start again.
This may have a use, but I am not sure. If Persians can actually eat this with joy and happiness, they are much better and stronger people than I.
