Karums - nobody can really explain what Karums is. It tastes similar to cheese cake, however, Latvian don't consider it to be a dessert. It's small (45 g), sold almost in any food store in milk product section. We eat it for breakfast or snack. You can get vanilla Karums, chokolate Karums, Karums with nuts, citron Karums, etc... It is the most popular product in Latvia according to official market surveys.
Caraway cheese , or any other kind of cheese. We simply love cheese, and it is very different from typical French or Swiss cheeses.
Black bread - just get into a supermarket and find bread section. There are tens of sorts of black bread - sweet, semi-sweet, not sweet, with corn, with caraway (you see, we like caraway). I think we have the best bread in the world!
Latvian beer -We are very proud of our local beer [as all Lithuanians and Czechs are :) ].
