In fact, Lukeria Ltd. mainly produces traditional oriental sweets: lokum (Turkish delight), pishmanie, dzhezerie or sudzhuk. But it turns out that this Bulgarian company also makes pretty good halva with almonds. I could bet you’d definitely enjoy such crunchy, slightly bitter and not over-sugared treat which I just tried.
As for the taste, it was more similar to that of Greek halva rather than Turkish, but somewhat lackluster. Though, quite solid and nougat-like texture had some signature Bulgarian style, I’d say. And you will see in picture below that Halva with Almonds by Lukeria was as photogenic as it was toothsome 🙂 OK, perhaps it won’t become everyone’s new fave, let’s be real, but I highly recommend tasting this Balkan sweet for yourself.
