Product Details

Halva is a sweetened sesame paste—think of it like the love child of peanut butter and sesame seeds. It often comes in a dense, chewy bar form, but this version is a mildly sweet, spreadable version. The all-natural halva spread is studded with whole unhulled roasted sesame seeds. It has an rich sesame aroma with a crunchy pop-in-your-mouth texture from the seeds.

We put it in our morning yogurt, bake it into pound cake batters, spread it on toast, and often eat it with it a spoon.

Brooklyn Sesame makes a mean classic Halva Spread with Roasted Sesame Seeds and 3 jazzed-up versions: Black Caraway Seed (with a savory kick that pairs well with cheese for a dessert course), Toasted Coconut (for a tropical twist), or Cocoa Sea Salt (puts Nutella to shame). If you can't choose, get a pack of all 4 flavors!

  • Made in: Brooklyn, NY
  • Made of: Sesame seeds, pure honey (black caraway version has black caraway seeds, coconut version has coconut flakes, cocoa version has sea salt and raw cocoa powder)
  • Size: 8 ounce jars

Sourced from: Brooklyn Sesame
