Sooshkas have been a part of Russian tradition for a long time throughout history, first considered as a sign of "prosperity and gastronomic well-being." Originally, people in Russia would hang the sooshkas on their walls, on parts of the stove, resting by a window, and more.
During celebratory purposes, wedding carts, for example would be decorated with bagels and sooshkas. Married couples would wear necklaces of sooshkas around their necks to give them welfare. In addition to these prosperous meaning that sooshkas have, it is also enjoyable to eat. These vanilla flavored sooshkas are best enjoyed with tea as an attribute to traditional Russian tea-drinking, where the baked goods are served on a Khohloma tray.
