Vladhleb Golden Rings with Poppy Seeds

Taste: These pretzel-like snacks from Russia had various shades of beige, with shapes that were round and thin, with a smattering of poppy seeds embedded into the surfaces. Once of the nice things was that the poppy seeds were well attached to the rings, so they didn't fall off and make a mess (though there was still a good pile of them at the bottom of the bag). Another nice thing was that it was fun to take the rings and put them onto the fingers. The sizes and shapes of the rings varied a bit (overall diameter averaged about an inch) but with some careful selection of rings, I was able to get them onto all five fingers. Yet another nice thing was that the bag featured an adorable mascot holding some wheat, wearing a huge chef's hat and bearing a very happy smile. Good.

Aroma: Kind of like pretzels, but more like poppy seeds.
