This is different than a typical babka, but I expected that from the description - I have never seen babka with halva before ! But it seems to be indicating that this babka is from Parallel, and I think that is misleading. Unless I am mistaken, the label indicates the babka is from Mika, a store that makes the babka, and includes in the ingredients halva from Parallel. You can see in the photo it is from Mika, but the Toronto Market Company listing shows Parallel as the vendor, which does not seem to be correct.
That being said, it was certainly tasty and decadent. But I have it 4 out of 5 stars, as I have had better babkas :) Then again, I am setting the bar of babkas from Cheskie's in Montreal, and they aren't exactly nearby.
Such a delicious treat, would highly recommend for everyone to try!
It was absolutely delicious. I would buy it again!!
This babka does not disappoint. Rich chocolate flavour with subtle tahini, and a moist brioche like cake. Definitely for sharing! Mazel Tov!
I loved it, it’s everything you expect a great chocolate babka to be, I would definitely buy again!
