Let‘s state that Halva With Cocoa by Esma will not enrapture any sweet tooth. Anyway, this treat could still suit if you wish to satisfy the craving for sesame halva. Honestly, I doubt that it could become your new favourite, but all the main qualities, which are inherent to this sweet Mediterranean dessert, were present.
I liked the overall taste of Halva With Cocoa by Esma, except the fact that it had some buttery aftertaste. Was it the result of inproper storage or was it a natural attribute? I don‘t know… The texture was good, but it also seemed quite oily. After all, the moderate sweetness and rich layers of cocoa saved this halva from more negative rating.
Finally, extra point was to be given because of really affordable price of Halva With Cocoa by Esma.
