If you live outside Greece there are not so many chances to indulge in such delicious treats as Handmade Halva with Greek Pistachio Kernel by Argoudelis. But I was fortunate enough to find it in the shop of Greek products, in Poland.
As expected, this halva was certainly worth of trying. Slightly bitter, fairly sweet and plentiful of pistachio – I found it very nourishing and truly enjoyable! Most of all I was delighted by the rich taste and hairy-like texture of this halva, which reminded me something between a dessert and a snack.
Finally, let‘s note that this producer makes its own tahini since 1860, what helps to make such a pure halva. I think you should definitely taste Handmade Halva with Greek Pistachio Kernel by Argoudelis!
