Olympos Royal Halva with Cocoa, Almonds & Raisins by Papayianni Bros gives everything desired for a forefinger like me. I mean its amazing taste, soft and rich texture along with restrained sweetness and slight bitterness. Of course, raisins in halva seem quite unusual, but exactly this ingredient made that treat so savory!
In fact Olympos Royal Halva with Cocoa, Almonds & Raisins reminded me Eridanous Halva with Cocoa which was also was made by Papayianni Bros. The taste of both seemed pretty much the same, so I might state that in this case 3 elements – almonds, raisins and bigger price – had determined the royal status for the first one 🙂
However, Olympos Royal Halva with Cocoa, Almonds & Raisins by Papayianni Bros is worth of trying. It also deserves a big praise because of the very low amount of sugar. Apparently, that helped me to sense better the natural, exquisite taste of this halva!
