Tahini Halva with Pistachio by Tunas stood out on the shelve because of very intense color of the packaging. But the taste of it was not outstanding in a good sense. This halva was rich of Antep pistachios, a little bit crunchy and quite sweet. The texture was solid and integral, so it had a pretty look.
Nevertheless, Tahini Halva with Pistachio by Tunas did not fascinate me. Why? I‘d say, mostly because of the some odd bitter aftertaste which I didn‘t like. Anyway, if you are keen on halva with pistachio nuts, this one could be worth of trying.
