Curd snack (Estonian: kohuke, Latvian: biezpiena sieriņš, Lithuanian: varškės sūrelis, Russian: творожный (глазированный) сырок) is a type of sweet snack made from curd cheese, popular in the Baltic states – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – as well as in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan[citation needed]. The snack is also known and produced elsewhere in Europe and the Middle-East.

The main part of a curd snack is freshly pressed curd and ingredients such as sugar, sweetener or other products. They can also have a filling made out of glucose, sugar, or thickener sometimes with preservatives.

Curd snacks are typically 5 centimetres (2.0 in) long, usually made from milled and pressed curd with raisins, jam or other filling. They also sometimes have no filling and are glazed with chocolate or vanilla-, kiwi- or woodland strawberry-flavoured cream.
