    I thought that you meant this. It was found in the produce section of
    grocery stores when I was a child. A tasty, fibrous snack

    Yes, it's a cause of much confusion.

    I'd say it's expensive at $11.50 (including shipping) per package/loaf.

    I might have seen a recipe in one of those 'American Test Kitchen'
    magazines.

    I remember that stuff from when I was a kid. We used to get it at school
    (I went to a Jewish Day School) for a minor holiday called Tu B'Shvat
    which was the new years day for trees (I'm not kidding). It is very
    chewy but tasty. I think they called something pronounced like "buck sir"

    Someone, somewhere (here?) was looking for the recipe. I have to think
    about where I read it. . . . It is popular.

    OK, it was someone who posted to the Facebook cooking group, looking for
    a recipe for Swedish rolls (dinner roll) served at St. Ben's (women's
    college affiliated with St. John's <men only, I think>).
