Packaging of Halva Cocoa by M. Kosmidis

Halva Cocoa by M. Kosmidis (est. 1922)

There is no doubt that Halva Cocoa by M. Kosmidis is a perfect example of the true taste this Mediterranean sweet is famous for. In addition, the flossy texture and tempting smell take it to the top level. But why should we be surprised knowing that this workshop has been in sweet business for more than 102 years so far?

When trying, I was fond of every detail and what was most special – those crunchy particles that were felt while savoring each piece of this halva. I also liked the fact that it was not very sugary but, at the same time, quite nourishing. So you may relish Halva Cocoa by M. Kosmidis and don’t think too much about glucose, calories, and other threats 🙂 In a nutshell, if you find it, don’t waste your chance to taste this renowned Greek treat.
