Istanbul, Turkey

Here's your mid-morning snack in Turkey. They look like round soft pretzels with sesame seeds instead of salt. Ancestors of these very seeds (4000 years old!) have been excavated in the Indus Valley. Just think: When you eat a Whopper, your tongue takes you back to one of the world's first civilizations, a cradle of culinary ingredients we use today. [2010]
