The Tahini Chocolate Dessert Collection
A perfect match between a Middle Eastern native bride (aka tahini) and a South American native groom (cacao) results in a delicious and nutrient-rich product. Made with tahini as the main ingredient, this fudge-like dessert is free of dairy and lightly sweetened with raw honey. It's designed for both tahini and intense cacao flavor fans. Slice and share with family and friends.
Available in 3 flavors: sesame shower, almonds & seeds, Arabic coffee.
The Date Rolls Collection
In the ancient Middle East, guests were offered dates as an expression of lavish hospitality. They helped restore the desert travelers and support their bodies with important nutrients. To this day, dates are still a vital ingredient in the region’s diet. Our Date Rolls are a homage to this old custom. They’re loaded with seeds and nuts and shaped like a log and intended to be served in slices for a sweet, healthy snack or dessert to nourish you and everyone gathered around your table.
Available in 4 flavors: almonds & pistachio, pecan & seeds, carob & coconut, fig & nuts.

We use tahini (a nutritious paste made from roasted and grounded sesame seeds) in our crafted products, and it’s always at the front and center of our dining events. Made from roasted and grounded sesame seeds, tahini is a nutrient-rich Middle Eastern staple. It’s a good source of plant-based fat, rich in protein, and packed with vitamins and important minerals. While it made its way to the western mainstream as a key ingredient in hummus, this rich, creamy, nutty-flavored component has plenty more, perhaps even better, ways to shine.

Born and raised in Israel, and after spending 10 years building a career in the fashion industry, Hila Krikov and her family moved thousands of miles away from home - to a place where familiar Middle Eastern ingredients were near to impossible to find. In her home in Lubbock, Texas, Hila found a new passion for her childhood flavors. Cooking and sharing Israeli foods and stories became the Krikovs’ way to reconnect with home, share their story, and make new friends.
When the family later moved to the Northeast, Hila founded Sweet Tahini with the purpose of introducing sweet, wholesome treats, that are made with middle eastern most nutritious pantry staples. Her goal is to inspire locals to make good, healthy food decisions, that will nourish both their bodies and mind.
