Greek Loukoum (400g) – Vomvyla
Loukoumi is a traditional sweet, made of sugar, water and starch, along with aromas and nuts. Loukoumia are small cubes covered with powdered sugar and come in several scents and flavors. They are traditionally served along with Greek coffee and a glass of cold water.
Loukoumi is the Greek name for what is called “Turkish delight” in English. The word “loukoumi” originates from Arabic meaning “throat comfort” (rāḥat al-ḥulqūm).
