Our Candy » Sesame Halvah

Deep sesame aroma with a hint of honey. Big, delicious toasted sesame flavor backed by the muscovado brown sugar, and it’s got a perfectly crumbly and luscious texture. Finish is sesame and honey all the way!

We toast and grind the fresh sesame seeds ourselves. There is no substitute for freshly toasted and ground sesame seeds in a traditionally made halvah!

We mix it by hand in small batches. We’re taking candy, and halvah, back to the days before industrial food production. Ours is the only handmade halvah that we know of in the U.S.

We make it with great ingredients. There are no shortcuts to flavor! Toasted fresh sesame seeds, dense and dark muscovado brown sugar, pure Michigan honey, and naturally harvested coarse sea salt all combine to make our halvah radically more flavorful!

Take a bite and you’ll be transported back 100 years. Zzang!
