Arabic sweets....

Finally ...these pics were taken about a month ago while shopping for my brother's gift....
I finally deciphered the way to download the pics to my PC without doing alot of damage...so here we go...

We went into several sweet shops because we were looking for halaweyat elmooled...but because it was not the season of moled elnaby all I could find was meshabek.
...you can see it in pic # 1 &2 ...meshabek are the golden treats arranged in stacks in the shop windows





In this pic you can see the petit fore & the chocolates...these 2 shops were of medium quality so we only got the meshabek from there...& off we went





Yum yum ...now this is my favourite shop....
Look at the delesh ...mouth watering sweets...& believe me all that you can manage to eat in one session is only a tiny bite....YUMMY...













& here are the end products ....a tray of Basbosa & another tray of assorted sweets......wrapped & ready to go





Anyone want a peice???

Assalamualaikum,

Ooohh~ you're teasing me with those sweets! Those look so nice! *and I bet they taste heavenly divine as well* I didn't manage to try any out when I was in the Mid East. :(

I don't think you can get meshabek online though...sorry
