Fruit and vegetables, such as mandarins, morello, juicy cherry tomatoes and eggplants, are exceptional Chian products. You should definitely taste the prototypal liqueurs and anything that has mastic as an ingredient. Spoons sweets (fig, eggplant, date etc.), several flavors of jams and griddle -cakes will definitely satisfy your palate! Pastelia (honey baked with sesame), ipovrixia (vanilla with water), halva pies (a confection), chewing gums, almond toffees and kourkoubinia (a syrupy sweet) will carry you away with the scent of mastic. Do not forget to taste the local inspired yogurt scented with mastic!
