Queijo coalho.

Queijo coalho or queijo-de-coalho (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈkejʒu ˈkwaʎu], literally "rennet cheese") is a firm but very lightweight cheese produced in Northeastern Brazil, with an almost "squeaky" texture when bitten into. It is a popular and cheap snack for beach-goers in Brazil, where walking vendors brown rectangular slabs of it in hand-held charcoal ovens, often with a sprinkling of oregano and garlic-flavored sauce. It is eaten off a stick, much like a kebab. Many people also eat it with molasses.
