Meet The Different Versions of “Tarboosh” Around the World!

Tarboosh, a product by

Gandour

, has been a classic Lebanese snack since 1960. Filled with marshmallow and covered with a thin chocolate layer, Tarboosh is a part of the typical Lebanese childhood. Recently, Faller, a French chocolate brand, introduced a new product. Big Mousse is the French version of our beloved Tarboosh. According to this brand, Big Mousse should be eaten with a spoon. Where is the fun in that? Although the ingredients are the same, there are numerous versions of this delicacy in France. For instance, some of them contain nuts, while others are covered with chocolate sprinkles. It is also known as

tête au choco
