Citrus Handmade Chian Tangerine Peel Spoon Sweet

  • This traditional dessert is inspired by the unique citrus fruits brought centuries ago to the island of Chios by the Venetians. Handmade with pieces of the highly aromatic Chian Mandarin floating in a simple, all-natural syrup of sugar, water, and lemon juice. No preservatives or additives, just a healthy Mediterranean dessert to enjoy straight or as a topping on your favorite treats. 

    “Spoon Sweets” are that quintessentially Greek accompaniment to coffee, as you’re welcomed to someone’s home with a spoonful on a small plate. The Tangerine Peel version is the epitome of Chios’ hospitality, served only to special visitors…but don’t just save it for visitors, share its tangy sweetness with all your family and friends!

    Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants. 

  • For foodies with a sweet tooth, Citrus Scent of Memory offers a zestful view into the unique heritage of the Greek island of Chios.

    We love this Spoon Sweet as a traditional dessert or as a topping for cheesecake, flan, panna cotta, yogurt parfaits, ice cream sundaes. Add it in your chia pudding, overnight oats, or your morning toast, bagel or waffle. Makes for a gourmet topping of crepes, pancakes and muffins. Try it as a refreshing base for shrubs or to to jazz up your prosecco or cocktail with it. Pair cheeses with it for a unique sensorial experience. And of course, you can even enjoy it the traditional Greek way, as a spoonful of sweet luxury with your afternoon coffee or tea.
