Halva Pistachio by Koska (est. 1907)

Halva Pistachio was one more impressive example, which confirmed mastery of Koska! It had everything needed: noticeable sweetness, desired bitterness and perfect texture. The overall taste was rich and strong because of a lot of Antep pistachio. It seemed that even a little piece of this dessert could be enough for complete satisfaction.

Let‘s face the fact – great halva is what Koska was famous about for more than 100 years. And their Halva Pistachio is a perfect proof of it.
