To be honest I was hesitating for a long time should I ever publish the review of Halva Kakao by Midyat or not… The reason of such doubt was the fact that two times I had to throw that halva right to the garbage bin as it have had somewhat strange, synthetic smell and taste. I still don’t understand if it had been caused by the improper storage conditions or because of something else?
Anyhow it happened so that I accidentally bought Halva Kakao by Midyat once more. And that appeared to be the luckiest try. Surprisingly this time the taste of it was pretty good and I didn‘t feel any plastic smell which scared me in previous attempts. I liked the bitter sweetness of that halva and the texture of it was very nice – quite soft, but firm enough. Therefore I could easily slice Halva Kakao by Midyat into nice-looking pieces. Let’s state that the flavor of cocoa was also well-balanced (as it was present, but not dominant part of the whole taste).
After all I was left confussed. One time that treat was decently tasty, two times it seemed spoilt. So, let‘s say, it‘s a risky choice. This was the reason why I couldn‘t give a higher rate to Halva Kakao by Midyat.
