So I was in Russian store the other day and bought some Halva. When I was a kid it used to be one of my favorite sweets. Still is actually. Anyway just out of curiosity I decided to look up calories for it, it's not printed on the box. Only source I found had it at 469 calories in 100g! Now I am not sure if it reffers to the same one I bought, since there are different variations of it based on culture. Russian one uses dried sun flower seeds. Still this was very shocking to me. I knew it wasn't exactly healthy, but damn! This is a very very sad news, because it tastes soooo goood. It is also more addictive then chocolate! I guess now I have to restrain myself from buying it, not that I bought it very often anyway.
P.S. If anyone has a link to how many calories are in halva made out of sun flower seeds, please post!
