If you’ve spent any time in Greece, Vanilla “spoon sweets,” or “submarines,” will need no introduction! Spoon sweets – fruits, nuts or citrus peels preserved in thick, flavorful sugar syrup, or fondant-textured Vanilla and Mastiha-flavored confections – have been an integral part of Greek, Turkish, Balkan and Russian culture for centuries. Spoon sweets are traditionally offered to visiting guests as a gesture of welcome and hospitality: served in a generous teaspoon with a glass of water, or coffee. Saradis has been making “spoon sweets” on the beautiful Greek island of Chios since 1928. Our Vanilla Sweets are velvety, creamy and bursting with natural vanilla flavor. Submarines are classically served in a teaspoon, immersed in a glass of cold water. The classic way to enjoy them is to lick the vanilla sweets on the spoon, between sips of water. To get the most out of this wonderful ritual, keep the vanilla sweets-filled teaspoon in your glass, so you can enjoy the vanilla-infused water when the treat is finished. Eminently spreadable, Saradis Vanilla Sweets also make a lovely topping, or accompaniment, to biscuits, muffins and scones. You will find spoon sweets (Glyka tou Koutaliou, in Greek) in almost every household in Greece. Why wait for special guests to enjoy them?
