No-added Sugar Halva 450g

Halva is a traditional soft brick sweet found across the world, from India to Greece and the Middle East. Handmade from sesame seeds, ground into tahini, it is vigorously hand-kneaded to produce the distinctive long threads and unique soft and sliceable texture of halva. Halvas Drapetsonas have pioneered this extremely popular no added-sugar alternative, produced using the same traditional methods as their other award-winning halvas which have followed the same classic recipe since 1924. Founded by the Kosmidis and Gavrilis families, all Drapetsonas products are 100% natural with no added preservatives, extra colouring or additives.

Halvas Drapetsonas, Drapetsona, Attica

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.
