Our Products 

There’s nothing more comforting, pleasing, and mood-boosting than a little something sweet. In the ancient Middle East, sweets were created by combining fruits with nuts and wheat with honey, and clusters of raisins, dates, and fig cakes were given as reviving foods. At Sweet Tahini, we strive to preserve these old customs, and craft sweets using the region’s most nutritious pantry staples, with great respect to its simple, minimally processed, and down-to-earth cooking traditions.

Food across the Mediterranean and the Middle East is an experience that is meant to be shared. Our products are designed for entertaining, to be enjoyed in gatherings with beer, or wine, on a cheese board, or as a light dessert after a heavy meal.


Date Rolls 

In the ancient Middle East, dates were offered to guests as an expression of hospitality. They provided desert travelers with a burst of energy and helped restore their bodies with important nutrients. 
Our date rolls are a homage to that past custom. Laden with nuts and seeds and shaped into a 9-inch round log, these wholesome delights provide a genuine experience. Serve in slices for a sweet, healthy snack or dessert to nourish you and everyone gathered around your table. 



Tahini Chocolate Fudge Bar 

Meet the chocolate fudge that is made with only nutrient-rich whole food ingredients and the subtle sweetness of raw organic honey. Tahini has been at the front and center of the Middle East’s cuisine for thousands of years, and our tahini-based dairy-free chocolate is an elevated way to experience this delicious and nourishing paste. Loaded with seeds, nuts, and spices, this delight has a super dense texture and a truly distinctive flavor. Gather your family and friends and share a bite-size slice of this wholesome indulgence.

Dukkah is a blend of toasted spices, seeds, and nuts, originating in ancient Egypt. With its exotic flavor, crunchy texture, and healthy fat content, this coarsely grounded mixture has the power to bring a dish to new heights with ease.  Swirl savory dukkah into olive oil or tahini for bread dipping, top off hummus, egg dishes, rice & roasted vegetables. Sprinkle on avocado toast, soup, or salad. Flavor dips, fish & meat. Enjoy sweet dukkha on ice cream, mousse, or cheese dip. Add into yogurt, or blend into pancake batter. Scatter over fruit salad, on toast with butter, cheese, or tahini & honey spread.  


Tahini Loaf

Who needs a grain when a nice loaf of bread can be baked with seeds? This loaf has a neutral flavor and dense texture, and it slices well. Snack on it with sweet or savory topping, toast it if you wish, or serve it as gluten-free-based for little party sandwiches.  


Halvah Frozen Dessert   

The famed Middle Eastern confection in a creamy frozen form! Tahini, halvah’s main ingredient, is nutrient-packed and one of the top sources of plant-based fat. Its naturally smooth and creamy texture makes it an ideal alternative to dairy cream, and its subtle nutty taste complements many other flavors. Our Middle Eastern-inspired flavors include vanilla bean, chocolate almond, and cardamom coffee.    


We use Tahini 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, even better, ways to shine.

Our Story 

Born and raised in Israel, after spending 10 years building a career in the fashion industry, Hila Krikov and her family moved thousands of miles away from home to start life in the US. In her home in Lubbock, Texas, Hila found a new passion for her childhood flavors. Cooking Israeli food gave the family a deep sense of home and sharing it with neighbors helped them make new friends.  

When the family later moved to the Northeast, Hila started to sell tahini-focused creations at farmer’s markets. Her mission was to introduce Eastern Mediterranean's sweet staples to the local consumers and to encourage them to add these nutritious snacks and desserts to their sweet pantry. Over the past five years, the brand grew and refined its selection, and products became available in retail stores. However, its initial mission, to offer indulgences that provide comfort and a sense of well-being at the same time, has never changed.  

Our products' packagings feature places and scenes across the Eastern Mediterranean, from fresh figs at the Carmel open-air market in Tel-Aviv, to piles of empty coffee cups at Samir's restaurant in Ramla, to date palm orchards on the Israeli border with Jordan, and more.  All these authentic photos have been taken by our friends and family members who live in the region.
