Recently I had a chance to taste TAHIN HALVA COCOA (tahin helva kakaolu) by KOSKA. The first statement – it was amazing! That delicious treat was not very sweet, the texture of it was soft and integral. It just melted in the mouth and left a feeling that the taste was just perfect. That was the kind of halva you would always be happy to get! And the flavour of cocoa was really good, I should add. So, this is one of the best halva I tried! 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 their tahin halva in the 21st century!
