Vanilla sweet


Vanilla sweet, or “vanilla submarine” (ipovríchio in Greek), is one of the favorite candies of children and adults in Greece. It is a white soft treat made of mastic, a unique aromatic resin that is only found in the Greek island of Chios. It is served on a spoon which is then dropped in a tall glass of cold water. Once in the cold water, vanilla sweet becomes a hard chewable candy meant to be licked on the spoon like a lollipop. You will definitely love it!
