Handmade Classic Halvas Drapetsonas with Vanilla and Almonds
Since 1924 the Kosmidis and Gavrilis families have been making artisan Greek halvas in Drapetsona, based in a traditional 19th century recipe, in the neighbourhood of Piraeus in Athens.
This delicious classic vanilla and almonds halvas is being made entirely by hand using only raw natural ingredients, premium Greek sesame seeds (tahini) and its oil, the "Queen of oils". It has no additives, artificial preservatives, no palm oil or hydrogenated fats, making it a healthy snack with many beneficial properties, such as antioxidants, energy replenishment, high protein content, muscle strength support, calcium, vitamin B1, B2 and it's rich in magnesium and polyunsaturated fats.
Its flavour is simply superb! Heavenly sweet with a subtle and warm bitterness of crushed sesame seeds and with a luxuriously delicious crunchy texture of whole Greek almonds. The subtle velvety vanilla flavour throughout the halvas makes it sensational! Therefore it comes at no surprise that it is highly regarded as the best halva worldwide. One not to be missed!
It's vegan and gluten free and can be eaten daily in moderation as part of a healthy diet.
Awards: Awarded 5 Stars by Halvamania.
Ingredients: Premium Greek tahini (crushed sesame seeds), sugar, glucose syrup, whole almonds (10%), vanillin and saponaria extract.
