Mastiha & Almond Loukoumia from Chios (7 oz)

Citrus

$7.50

The island of Chios, located in the Aegean, is renowned for its citrus fruits as well as the exotic resin, mastiha. Chios Mastiha is a resinous sap produced from the mastic tree. While the mastic tree grows throughout the Mediterranean region, only on the southern part of Chios does it successfully produce the famous mastiha. Attempts to cultivate mastiha elsewhere have failed. It is a natural, aromatic resin that falls on the ground in the shape of teardrops from scratches made on the surface of the tree trunk with sharp tools. 

Loukoumia or "Turkish Delight" is a chewy confection that is popular throughout Greece. This unique variety is flavored from mastiha and almond. Mastiha has an exotic, woody aroma that is well balanced by the sweetness and bitterness of almond here. This loukoumia is truly a taste of Greece!

Ingredients: Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Corn Starch, Almond (5%), Mastiha Oil Flavouring (0.03%), Acidity Regulator: Citric Acid

Nostimotata!

That's the Greek word for delicious! I really didn't know what to expect. As much as I love mastiha, the flavor can be overpowering but the citrus essence played well with the mastiha and the combination was light and fresh. The powdered sugar brought just enough sweetness to balance everything out. Deliciously delightful!
