What the hell is halva? Halva is a candy made of crushed sesame seeds paste mixed with honey and other natural ingredients. Very popular in Balkan countries. It is very crumbly but once take a bite it turns to gooey and chewy in your mouth. It is simply delish and come in variety of flavours. In America you could find it in Turkish/Greek/Polish shops. Give it a go guys and I guarantee you will love it.
