"...she’s got the formula down, capturing the delicate (but rich), crumbly (but not dry), melt-in-your-mouth texture that is halvah’s hallmark, in sophisticated flavors like cardamom, anise-rosemary, and Earl Grey."

We decided that we had to make delicious halvah and bring it to you because in this world of small, creative purveyors, none were making this wonderful tahini based candy, which is loaded with protein and calcium. Halvah has centuries of history in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Many of us have memories of enjoying the candy with elder relatives. However, all of the halvah produced for sale is made by large manufacturers, many using artificial flavoring and preservatives. The flavors offered are typically vanilla, chocolate or chocolate and vanilla(marble)! Perhaps with nuts mixed in. We knew that there was a potential for many more luscious combinations than those because the depth of flavor of the earthy, rich, ground sesame tahini that pairs so well with spices and extracts. Our halvah is gluten-free, vegan, nut free and with all organic sweeteners. We read the accounts of the many who have tried and failed to make halvah in small batches. We were told that we had chosen an impossible goal. But we kept working at it and now have the luscious results for you to enjoy! We have seven flavors and offer other seasonal choices.
