Initially Tahin Halva with Pistachios by Tatsan was reviewed on halvamania.com 2,5 year ago. Then I gave 4 stars out of 5 for that treat, appreciating its good taste and perfect texture. So when I got a bigger box (700 g) of the same Tatsan halva, there appeared a chance to check it out again and revise my previous review.

Actually, this time that savory and nourishing halva seemed even better. Pleasant nutty flavor from lots of Antep pistachios, perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness – everything made that dessert just irresistible 🙂

Thus Tahin Halva with Pistachios by Tatsan remains among the most tasty Turkish halva which I have tried so far. Perhaps there’s nothing else to be added to such statement, except the urging that you should try this treat, too! So never mind its quite plain packaging and somewhat big price – you won’t regret after tasting.
