LOL...there's a greek restaurant in our mall at the food court.  They sell slices of this for $1.75.  I've been eating it for years.  Got it the last time we were at the mall and my girls were all "what's that, can I have a bite?" And as picky as they are, they loved it!

This looks very interesting. I'm not quite sure what to think of it.

I love this stuff.  Tried to make it once and decided I don't like working with phyllo dough. lol

 I guess I would have to taste it before I decided.  DH wouldn't even try it but I would.
