Armenian String Cheese

I've recently discovered Armenian String Cheese -- for those of you who've never attempted a low-carb diet, string cheese is a little snack that's recommended as being lowish in fat and low in carbs, which is why I got to trying string cheese again as an adult, and I kind of liked it as a convenient snack. But last time I had it, I just found the average supermarket brand lacking in flavor, texture, and, well, stringy-ness. I remember it being better when I was a kid. So the next time I got the urge for string cheese, I bought the Sun-ni brand of Armenian string cheese, and it is worlds better than the standard stuff! Nice flavor, wonderfully stringy, and, well, fun to eat ;-)

Tonight I made a recipe suggested on the package, basically just the Armenian string cheese, stringed and stuffed inside a pita, then toasted in the toasted oven, and it was great! So simple, yet so good -- it reminded me of the cheese fatayar (sort of a Lebanese "empanada") they serve at a place I love in LA called Marouch.

Any other ideas on what to do with (good) string cheese? And what's with the little black seeds? Any brands to recommend?
