"A staple throughout the Mediterranean and Balkans, Halva is a sweet confection made by delicately blending tahini, or sesame paste, with boiled sugar. With a not-too-sweet delicate peanut-butter like flavor, Halva is light, crumbly and airy, melting almost instantly in your mouth. At Haitoglou, we have been making our Halva with Almonds for more than 80 years, using our traditional family recipe, without chemicals or additives. Halva has become a recent favorite of chefs who are adding it to baked goods and ice cream sundaes. For an easy dessert to “wow” your guests, enjoy our halva shredded over ice cream with caramel sauce. Rich in vitamins B and E, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, selenium and antioxidants, try our Halva in chocolate and pistachio."
