This traditional desert is handmade on the Greek island of Chios, with slices of orange floating in a simple syrup of sugar, water, lemon juice, and a touch of warm cinnamon - 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. 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 more information on all the Ingredients and Nutrition, click on the tabs above.
Why we love it
We love this Spoon Sweet as a topping for cheesecake, flan, panna cotta, yogurt parfaits. Its orange cinnamon syrup makes a unique base for shrubs and can add a touch of warmth to 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.
