Tahin Halva Cocoa by Koska (est. 1907)

Recently I had a chance to taste Tahin Halva Cocoa (tahin helva kakaolu) by Koska. My first comment – it was simply amazing!

This delicious treat was pretty sweet and its texture seemed soft but integral. So it just melted in the mouth and left a feeling that the taste was just perfect. I should add that the flavour of cocoa was also really good. This is the kind of halva you would always be happy to get! Definitely, I would recommend it to everyone.

By the way, I was told that Koska had made a big name in Turkey long ago. Records say that the history of this manufacturer reaches the beginning of the 1900‘s! So, we are very lucky people as we still may enjoy Koska halva in the 21st century!
