Folks are saying good things...
"It is the definition of balance: sweet, savory, full of texture. Just right."
Hebel & Co is family-owned and -operated. As such, each halva we make begins with a sophisticated scientific process known as kvetching and kvelling. At the end of that process a beautiful halva is born, one that will make your family very proud. Or is it our family? Your family? It's not important. What's important is that you sit back, enjoy yourself, and find your way over to the fresh halva.

The Origin of Halva
Along with many things that originate from the Levant**, 'halva' has a storied history. It has traversed many centuries and many borders, and as a result, it has acquired many names. We have decided to call ours halva. That being said, we have much respect for the other spellings and wish one day to build a strong and lasting relationship with the other orthographies.
Let's leave this to the historians and agree that it doesn't matter how it's spelled; what matters is that, after eating, you will likely feel like dancing.
** We're not leaving out the Indian Subcontinent, the Caucasus, the Balkans, Africa, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, or everywhere else. You are halva brothers and sisters too, and make tremendously delicious halvas. We appreciate you.
