KARACHI: Employees of the US Consulate General in Karachi on Friday released a video on their Facebook page sharing their first experience tasting 'gol gappas'. 

Ten employees of the US Consulate staff were part of the intriguing video, which seemed like an attempt by the US embassy to soften the image of staff working in Pakistan. Puzzled by the texture and look of the treat, the employees at first seemed perplexed over how to attempt to eat the savoury dish.

One employee said, "I think you pour the sauce in the centre," while another described how they looked like a "bird's nest".

Despite the apparent confusion and initial hesitancy, a majority of the employees liked the taste of the dish and used an interesting variety of words to describe the taste. Crispy, sour, spicy and crunchy were just some of them.

One employee even termed it a "chick-pea surprise" while another sang a melodic number about the snack, singing "gol gappay wala aya"
