Why did we decide to produce talkan and zhent in the first place?
At first we wanted to release zhent, because we loved him as a child. But then we decided to start production from talkan, because we had land.
We started with wheat: we sowed it, fried it, ground it, added sugar. Even in the war and post-war years, various peoples, including immigrants, ate talkan. They sowed wheat and ground it themselves on millstones at home. And the grandparents, who were children at that time, took up the talkan and thanked us. We have talkan with sugar and without sugar. This is a great dry breakfast, which is much tastier and healthier than a store-bought breakfast. Then we began to develop zhent. It is similar to halva, it is a dish for the most distinguished guests.
