6. Nothing's quite like an Iranian pistachio

That's probably what I miss most when I'm stateside.

15. isn't Iran the only place that's allowed to sell it?

 

I thought Russian beluga caviar was banned, due to the fact that it's leading to the extinction of the beluga sturgeon.

16. Right, any legal Beluga is Iranian, which means you can't buy it in the US

But you can buy Beluga caviar in countries that don't embargo Iran (like Russia).

There's a running gag in the foreign service that you always get another country's diplo to officially "host" your party, so that you can serve Iranian caviar.
