Pashmak, It’s meaning “pashm : wool” and “ak : like”. “wool-like” It originated in the city of Yazd, Iran.

It is a Persian candy floss. It is made from sesame and sugar. It’s sweet flavor just melts in your mouth. It is so soft, delicate and fluffy, just like cotton candy. Except for it’s not as sugary-sweet as cotton candy, it is much more enjoyable. I’ve seen it in pastel colors such as green, pink, yellow and white. Each with it’s own flavor. Pashmak is usually served with tea. I used it at my wedding, as a wedding favor! A traditional Persian sweet, looked great and everyone, young and old; enjoyed the little taste of sweetness.

You can purchase pashmak at most nuts and sweets stores or you can find at the bazaar.
