Traditional festival and Local candies in Zakynthos
If you ever find your self in one of the religious festivals of Zakynthos, try to find pastelia and fitoures. They are candies traditionally sold in every such festival. In fact is the only thing these years that connects back to the old traditions. Pasteli is a candy that can been found even in shops. It is a great sweet made out of honey and sesame. Never the less in the festivals it is sold freshly made. You can see the honey dripping, the taste is great. Fitoures is something you can find only in the Zakynthian festivals, no where else in Greece. It is like a fried semolina cake, served covered with sugar. It is served just out of the pan, so be careful not to get burn.
