Fuman (Persian: فومن‎, also Romanized as Fooman, Fūman, Fowman, Fowmen, and Fumen)[1] is a city in and the capital of Fuman County, Gilan Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 27,763, in 7,728 families.[2]

Fuman is famous for its persian cookies called Koloocheh, which are thinner and larger than its famous brethren, the Lahijan Koloocheh. While not as well publicized and mass produced as the Koloocheh from Lahijan, Fuman's Koloocheh is quite popular and tasty. To learn more about Koloocheh see Koloocheh and Masgati
