Poolaki is a caramelized hard sugar candy from the city of Isfahan, located in the central part of Iran. This sweet candy is usually served best along with hot and fresh brewed tea. Poolaki from Isfahan is exceptionally tasty and delicate and no homemade version of it would ever come close to the real thing, but I my homemade Poolaki is as close as the authentic candy you can get, and it tastes pretty damn good!
This is not a sugar cube to melt quickly in your mouth and it's not that soft to chew or swallow quickly, you need to take time and experience the magic of poolaki. Make yourself a nice cup of fresh brewed tea, take a poolaki, dip the corner of it into the hot tea, place the candy in your mouth, taste the sweetness of it and then take a sip of your tea. Let the bitterness of the tea mix in with the candy, and for a nostalgic moment you'll be walking down those old tree-lined streets of Chahar Bagh among the crowd of early evening shoppers where everyone looks cheerful.

This listing is for 20 oz of Poolaki. (Comes in two 10 oz bags so they won't stick together)
Please let me know if you need a bulk order.
