Coffee treats and snacks are proving a popular choice in Doha sweet shops this weekend as Muslims gather today to break the end of the holy month of Ramadan with Eid Al Fitr.
“The most sought-after items on Eid Al Fitr are chocolates such as ‘Baid Al Niam’ sweets of different varieties and coffee sweets arranged in flower shapes,” Shadi Abo Husaini, deputy general manager of Rellato Sweet Shop, told Qatar’s Peninsula newspaper.
He said that coffee sweets, which are served with coffee, are experiencing high demand for family gatherings during the three-day Eid al-Fitr - which means "festival of breaking the fast" – “as it is a combination of past tradition and modernity with a wonderful original taste.”
Husaini told the paper that “other high demanded sweets” include Al Baiti Fur, which has nine different flavors, including caramel, pistachio, chocolate and mango, “as well as sweets like fruit nutella and Swiss roll with flavors like chocolate, vanilla and pistachios.”
He said chocolate moulds and fillings used by the company are imported from France and include saffron, cardamom, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts and other nuts.
