Halva with Almonds 450g

Halvas Drapetsonas has been famed for its homemade halva sweets since 1924, which are widely considered some of the best in the world. Halva is made from tahini paste, sugar and starch that is allowed to set into a sliceable block - a bit like soft turrón. It is a great source of energy and was traditionally consumed during the eating window of a fast. This addictive crunchy almond version takes all the richness and smoothness of the original and gives it extra texture, nuttiness and protein. Founded by the Kosmidis and Gavrilis families, all of the Drapetsonas products are 100% natural with no added preservatives, extra colouring or additives.

The Halvas Drapetsonas workshop was opened in 1924 by Costas Mezardasoglou, a refugee from Asia Minor. Mezardasoglou had worked in a halva factory in Asia Minor, where he learned the art of hand-making traditional halva. Costas began making his own halva using rudimentary means, in an old wooden shack, a few metres away from where production takes place today. When the state donated some land to refugees, Kostas constructed the building that is still the Halvas Drapetsonas workshop. As the years passed, his son George became interested in the business and eventually took over production completely, as Costas became too old to work. Halvas Drapetsonas is the best in Greece, and remains today a traditional, family business, producing all kinds of traditional confectionary.
