This traditional dessert is handmade on the Greek island of Chios, famous for the unique citrus fruits brought centuries ago by the Venetians. With a non-traditional blend of pieces of Orange, Bitter Orange, Lemon, and Grapefruit floating in an all-natural syrup of sugar, water, and lemon juice - no preservatives or additives at all, just simple island sweetness.
“Spoon Sweets” are that quintessentially Greek accompaniment to coffee, as you’re welcomed to someone’s home with a spoonful on a small plate. This Four Citrus Fruits version gives a unique twist to that island tradition…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 topping for cheesecake, flan, panna cotta, yogurt parfaits, ice cream sundaes. Add it in your chia pudding, or your morning oatmeal, toast or bagel. Makes for a gourmet topping of crepes, pancakes, waffles and muffins. Try it as a refreshing base for shrubs or to jazz up your prosecco. And of course, you can even enjoy it the traditional Greek way, as a spoonful of sweet luxury with your afternoon coffee or tea.
