Can of Macedonian halva with almonds by Haitoglou Bros

Macedonian Halva with Almonds by Haitoglou Bros. (est. 1924)

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.
