Eating habits in ancient Greece. Tip-5: Sweets and pies

Sweets in ancient Greece was called “nogalevmata”. The most popular sweet was called “mitottos”, made of pitta and cheese blended with honey and garlic. “Ekchitos” was a mix of flour and baked cheese, thrown in special molds filled with wine.  They were also eating honey-pies called “melitouta”.  They particularly liked a special sweet made of flaxseeds and honey, called “chrissokolla”.  However one of the most common pies was the milk pies.
