Macedonian Halva with Almonds by Haitoglou Bros. is one more delicious lure intended for all forefingers of the world. I bought a can of this halva (not the usual package), because I was adviced by the shop assistant that it would taste much better when packed in such form. Either way or another, but it was a great halva, which sent me straight to the sweet (and a little bit bitter) oblivion. Each bit of it gently dissolved in the mouth and made me wish for more & more of this treat…
The texture was soft, but with some crunchy parts, and there were plenty of whole almonds kneaded into it. But, to tell the truth, I wasn’t able to cut it so that I could take out a nice piece of this halva from the can. Just be aware that it‘s not very suitable for serving. Nevertheless, it‘s so good and it could be a real relish for everyone!
I should notice that the taste of Macedonian Halva with Almonds was quite similar to Macedonian Halva with Vanilla, which I had tried before. But it seemed less sweet (what I liked) and it was with almonds (what you may prefer). Anyhow, I enjoyed it very much, and I can recommend this halva for everyone.
