Vanilla sweet is a beloved spoon sweet that emerges stories from our childhood. A spoonful of vanilla dipped in a glass of cool water is the reason that, in Greece, it is, also, called "submarine"!
Confectioners from the island of Chios, who worked in Istanbul, seem to have been inspired by this way of vanilla paste use. There, it was known as "white sweet" or "tratamento" and even today is the official treat at the Patriarchate.
In addition, on the island of Chios, they added mastic aroma, creating the mastic sweet, which is consumed in the same way.
