Krinos Imported Tahini -- 16 oz
Too watery, too little flavor
There is a reason it's rather cheap - you get what you pay for.
The flavor is virtually non-existent, it's not a paste, rather predominantly a liquid (diluted with some mediocre oil? Mediocre - because it doesn't have any flavor).
I'd rather spend more next time but end up with a decent product.

My Favorite Tahini
I've loved Tahini for 25 or 30 years, and started using it to make hummos or similar dishes when I lived in the Middle East in the 1980's. I've tried different brands, but this is my favorite of all that I've found and tried in the U.S. This is from a Greek company, and I know they also use Tahini in various recipes, but this is also like the best Middle Eastern tahini I've had. I got a bottle of it somewhere, then could never find it again, so I'm hugely pleased to see it available at Vitacost at a reasonable price. Highly recommended, and it really holds up well in the fridge. The only ingredient in this is ground sesame seeds. Lovely!

I bought this even though I usually buy organic because the serving size indicated a higher protein content. I assumed that it must be ground from whole seeds. However, it seems like all other tahinis and I'm wondering how theirs has more protein. Next time I'll buy an organic whole seed tahini I found on line.
