Let’s look closer at these little Tunisian marvels to give to your employees.
Tunisian Sweets for Gift-Giving After Ramadan
Grab your coziest seat; baklava has a rich and fascinating history that’s worth reading about.
With a history that dates as far back as 800 BC in the Assyrian Empire, these delicacies provide a culinary experience that’s been enjoyed and innovated throughout the centuries.
It’s formed with stretched layers of bread dough, layered with chopped nuts and drizzled in honey, and baked afterward.
Throughout the years, other cultures grew fond of this delectable dessert and created their own spin on it. The ancient Greeks introduced phyllo dough to the mix, which made the layers of the baklava more delicate and light. Spice and silk trade routes introduced new ingredients as well, like cardamom and cinnamon.
Now, it’s a staple for many Middle Eastern cuisines with its trademark sweet and nutty taste, sandwiched delicately between layers of phyllo bread.
These traditionally Tunisian donut-shaped pastries are celebrated during momentous occasions with a large gathering. This can include wedding parties, graduation ceremonies, and of course, Eid al-Fitr.
The Kaak Warka is made from the following ingredients:
Layla’s Delicacies Kaak Warka are filled with almond paste and infused with our signature rose water for a distinct flavor and a subtle, sweet taste.
Many customers have sung the praises of this nostalgic dessert.
“Try not to eat your fingers in the process! I have been eating Tunisian Kaak since I was a kid, quality factory-made and handmade. I can vouch for these absolutely exquisite and authentic Kaak from Layla's and I am thrilled that I no longer have to wait for the rare overseas shipments that have been getting me by all these years!
PS: makes for a delicious and sophisticated gift that comes nicely packaged.” — Fatima H, Vienna, USA.
Giving this melt-in-your-mouth goodie to your employee is sure to make them feel the sweet touch of home away from home.
A popular North African delicacy, the Samsa is a sticky-sweet crispy treat with an outer layer made out of thin phyllo sheets and a moist filling made out of a mix of crunchy almonds and hazelnuts.
This Tunisian treat is traditionally served in family and friend gatherings, and of course, Muslim holidays as well. It’s paired well with the flowery and refreshing notes of mint tea or even a second Samsa drenched in a sweet glaze.

Layla’s Delicacies: Our Story
Layla’s Delicacies is a family business that aims to share the sweets of Tunisia with America.
We couldn’t find any restaurants or pastry shops that sold Tunisian Baklava, Samsa, or Kaak Warka so we decided to make our own.
And before we knew it, our friends and family all loved it. They were even willing to pay to buy more of these delicacies!
Layla is the name of our young daughter, and this business is a product of our love for Tunisian treats and our family.
We ship nationwide within one business day. If you want to know more, you’re welcome to contact our corporate sales team to get started.
Enjoy our delicious Tunisian treats!
