This is a bunch of fresh chickpeas sold everywhere these days on the side of the road. Street cart vendors used to call on customers with a jingle that went like this:
Um Elaibaneh (Mother elaibaneh)
Khodra w-malieaneh (green and full)
bet salleh al-za3laneh(will cheer up whoever is angry)
btejoueh al-dekkaneh(will mess up the store)
You will find these at Middle-Eastern stores or Latino stores (or try requesting them from your local supermarket since chickpeas are grown in the US); peel and eat as a snack with a glass of your favorite beverage.
