One major delicacy of note at the shop is the Palestinian Green Almond (Loz Akdar). Green almonds are known to have a distinct but subtle flavor that is usually described as delicate, and a bit gelatinous. Their main appeal is their soft yet firm texture. They can be seen as cousins to peaches and plums. The green almond is loaded with antioxidants, and in some instances has been proven to help combat high cholesterol.

The island of gummy flavors include ice cream, pineapple, strawberry, myriad sour worms, hot hearts, and lemons.

Apple rings, dried dates, orange peels, figs, dried kiwi, papaya chunks, and banana chips are all in the shop. You can even take home sugared chickpeas, corn nuts, and chili rice crackers are on the menu.
