Macedonian Halva with Hazelnuts, Raisins and Cocoa by Haitoglou Bros. attracted my attention because of the quite unusual set of ingredients. To be precise, the main surprise was an inclusion of raisins, but (let’s admit the fact) they perfectly fitted in this halva. Accordingly it seemed less bitter and became more juicy, that’s for sure. I really liked the rich layers of cocoa, yet the hazelnuts were only sparsely found in that sweet treat.
Anyhow the taste was adorable and once again I could only praise Haitoglou Bros., who widened its alluring assortment with that intriguing Macedonian Halva with Hazelnuts, Raisins and Cocoa. Hopefully, you will have a chance to try it, too.
