Packaging of Al-Rabih halva with chocolate

Halva with Chocolate by Al-Rabih (est. 1975)

Well, Lebanese Halva with Chocolate by Al-Rabih was something special! As I am devoted admirer of halva, additionally affected by the passion for dark chocolate, this delicious oriental dessert hit me heavily. Honestly, I even had to force myself to stop eating it!

The taste of this halva was really great and quite unusual, because it had some pleasant sourness. But it was also particularly bitter (thanks to the dark chocolate, which was mixed in) and notably sugary. The texture was quite dry and a little bit crunchy, but still it was perfect for cutting. Everything I mentioned above made the discussed halva simply irresistible.

Believe me, this treat is worth of your attention. Ultimately, I was not surprised to see the sticker on the packaging, which claimed that Halva with Chocolate by Al-Rabih have been voted product of the year 2013. It still rocks!
