What is Tahini and how to use our chocolate tahini

Tahini is an extremely nutritional paste which is made from ground sesame seeds. It is also known as sesame butter or sesame paste. Tahini originates from the countries of the Mediterranean. It can be blended with a selection of other ingredients to make dressings, dips, sauces and spreads.


Our chocolate Tahini is a superb healthy alternative to chocolate spread. It contains sesame seeds, hazelnuts, cacao powder, extra virgin olive oil and only 1.5 teaspoons of brown sugar per jar. Our chocolate tahini is based on a traditional family Greek recipe and has travelled from the hill of Northern Greece to the foothills of Mt. Leinster in Co. Carlow where it is produced.

Our Chocolate Tahini can be used in many ways. Here’s some ideas for you to try:

If you are trying to make healthier choices for you or your family our Chocolate Tahini take a look at the nutritional information on our jar and compare it to leading brand names in chocolate spread.

If you have a child who loves Nutella it can be a difficult transition but one which is worthwhile. The texture of our chocolate tahini is quite different to  Nutella – it has a grainy texture and is quite sticky. You can taste the hazelnuts straight away as opposed to tasting the sugar in Nutella. A tip here is to add some honey to the jar and mix it well and it helps when giving it to children who are used to eating Nutella.
