You guys are both wrong - they are tonsilloliths. (a.k.a tonsil stones) The smell is a dead giveaway.

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response

This condition is called granular pharyngitis, this is due to inflammation of the posterior pharyngeal wall and the white granules are the accumulated pus like thing. You need to drink plenty of warm water, do gargles with betadine mouth gargles (1:1 dilution) 3-4 times/day. If the symptoms does not improve please contact your ENT specialist.
