Marble Halva by Achva (est. 1929)

First of all, Marble Halva by Achva has nothing in common with limestone, except the title and some visual likeness. It’s a really good Israeli halva with cocoa and delicate flavour of vanilla. I loved its taste, which seemed similar to other sorts of Achva halva, but, perhaps, was a little bit milder.

This treat appeared quite sweet and the slight bitterness revealed with a little delay – just to strengthen the overall satisfaction. The texture of Marble Halva was very smooth and soft, so I could slice it with ease. As for me, the stronger savour of cocoa could have made this sesame dessert even better, nevertheless Marble Halva by Achva was a great relish!
