You know, the last time I tasted these was back in 1980, in Iran. It’s been such a long time I can’t get myself to open the packet. I know I am going to be disappointed with the taste, as I am 1000% sure the quality has gone waaaaaaaaaay down hill since the old days.

I saw them today in an Iranian shop (Hormoz, in Finchley) here in London. Stared at them for a few mins, and thought I must try it and see.

When I was a kid, I used to hate sitting in one place, and I was uber active. My grandfather, god rest his soul, used to buy packets of these and give them to me as treats, if I sat down quietly. Even if it was only for 10mins. I was a nightmare as a kid.

For those who don’t know what this is, it’s cheesy snacks, bit like Cheetos or for the Scandinavians, Cheese Doodlez.
