To crown this masterpiece, a delicate drizzle of salted caramel blends with the honeycomb and hazelnut croquant, creating a harmonious blend of sweet and salty.

In 2019, TBS introduced their basmoula, a compatible match between basbousa and maamoul. This year, however, their basmoula has turned upside down—quite literally—to form an even more compatible match between crumbled pieces of basmoula and extra cream, all enhanced with your flavour of choice, whether that be strawberry, mango, dried apricot, Lotus, or Nutella.
