They stopped for kymyz on the way home. Kymyz is made from fermented mare's milk and is very popular here. We've managed to avoid tasting it so far- it doesn't quite sound appealing to us, but I imagine we'll have some before we leave.
They also were selling dried yogurt balls, very much like the yogurt balls in the Middle East. Yogurt here is made with sour milk though, so the taste and smell is rather different.
