Hard to describe isn't it?  It's a Mediterranean candy.  It's sweet and pasty.  With a really strong nut flavor although there's no nuts...just sesame...

the cookies are awesome...less sweet, less pasty, and buttery melt in your mouth.  But still with that big sesame flavor.  

Havent had it in years....so I was totally surprised.
