Tahini Halva - Pistachio Flavored

Halva is a traditional fudge-like confection made with tahini (sesame seed paste), sugar, spices, and nuts popular in West Asia, and the Middle East. In fact, the Arabic word halva translates to “sweetness.” Halva originated in Persia. A reference to halvah appeared in the 7th century, referring to a mixture of mashed dates with milk. By the 9th century, the term was applied to numerous kinds of sweets, including the now-familiar sweetened cooked semolina or flour paste.

Halva’s semisweet, nutty flavor and crumbly, fluffy texture are what make it a uniquely delicious treat. This iconic candy can be found in many Middle Eastern grocery stores and street markets.

This variety is chock full of fresh pistachio nuts.
