Kosmidis drapetsonas Greek halva is hand made in Piraeus using the best ingredients and a traditional recipe. The company is nearly 100 years old, and still operating from the same original premises and run by the same families.
We think this is the best halva in the world! We offer a huge choice of flavours – classic vanilla (including the Lent version without sugar), almonds (also an optional sugar free version), brown sugar and unhulled sesame seed versions, cocoa, dark chocolate, almonds with chocolate, pistachio, cranberry and almonds, carob, carob and almonds! The sugar-free versions are made with fructo-oligosaccharides – natural plant sugars which are not absorbed in the gut (so no extra calories) but are also super-good for our bowel bacteria!
Halva is also rather good for you (in small amounts!) – the sesame seeds are rich in minerals including magnesium and also plant lignans which may be protective against certain cancers! They also are rich in ‘healthy fats’.
Halva is delicious eaten with coffee, at the end of a meal, or just as an energy snack or treat!
