    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.

    Had it once before. Not for me. It might have been the fact that it looked like some sort of budget pate that meant I was in the wrong frame of mind when trying it though.

    My snack of the week:

    Taste like crisps/potato chips used to taste like back in the day when they didn't have to be checked for health. Terrible for you, but delicious.
