We had strawberry pop-tarts, frozen blueberry muffins, and the orange fanta (warm, of course).

...and those odd ketchup flavored chips.

We ate a lot of naan on the local economy, but I never saw anything that was the size of a pop-tart. Most was longer than an MRE box, and about as wide.

Costco sells it now in the bread section. It's the rounded kind though, but pretty much the same taste. I've changed to that over regular bread.

If you're talking about a pastry type bread, I know what you're talking about but i can't remember the name. I've seen it baked as a large cake before.

Compared to some other traditional pastries though, it ain't shit.

Last pastry at the bottom tastes exactly like a soft pop tart without the filling. http://ferishtaseyid.blogfa.com/cat-47.aspx

OK, that link says its called "root" but I don't think I've ever heard that before.

Y'all should have asked. I would have sent y'all some export sodas and vacuum sealed Cuban bread.

I called it foot bread because I saw some afghan guys at the oven stepping on the dough to flatten it.

Naan means bread in Dari, but they also say naan when referring to any food. i think its the same in pashto

That bread? I've seen them stomp out the dough flat with their feet before baking it in a few different places.

We have always called it bicycle bread every time I am over there, not sure why though.

One of the village elders in the "Battle of Marjah" documentary shows off one of those pieces of bread as the Marines are searching his village. "Look! This is where we make our bread."

One dollar US used to get us twenty pieces freshly baked. That was some good bread.

True story, that bread is fucking delicious. Aldi also sells it in packs of 2 for a buck or two.

I'm surprised the locals don't collect honey-in the mountainous areas of Turkey, it was awesome seeing the late afternoon sun shining through the jars of honey at the roadside stands.

Ehhh, the beef (goat) stew with rice was okay. Just don't want the white sauce on it. One of my friends got the white yogurt sauce on his food and was making the port o john run the whole day.
Bread was good though.

Maza Bread? It is popular in the Middle East and consists of pretty much just flower and water then dried. It is a flat bread.

You can find Lavash or Naan at any Arab, Persian, Indian, Pakistani grocer usually frozen if they don't have a local bakery.

I've never been to Afghanistan but I did enjoy the diamond shaped loaves of Iraqi samoon bread during my time in the land between the rivers.

Naan is the only bread that i saw and it don't look like no fucking Pop Tart.

Maybe the OP's buddy means "wheat snack bread." It fits the description.
