Many Middle Eastern sweets stores offer their products online for worldwide shipping. However, not all stores have good packaging solutions that guarantees that the pastries are delivered in good condition.
When ordering pastries online, one should be careful to make sure the sender employs an adequate packing solution that reserves the sweets in a good condition.
Many brick and mortar Middle Eastern and Arabic sweets have gone online. They usually offer a large variety of their sweets through their websites.
In general, stores offer most their product except those that are filled with cheese or cream (also called Kashta) because it would get spoiled during shipping.
The sweeets usually offered include assorted Baklava of all kinds (original Baklava, Burma, Kol Weshkor, Fingers, Basma, and Ballorieh) as well as Mamoul in its three different filling version (dates, pistachios, and walnuts) as well as Nammoura and Sfouf.
Since the best Middle Eastern sweets and Arabic pastries are being manufactured in countries in the Middle East, people demanding high quality sweets but living outside the Middle East region prefer to order online and get their products shipped rather than buying lower quality sweets from their local shops.
However, Middle Easters sweets, whether it is assorted Baklava, Mamoul, Mamoul-Mad, Nammoura, Sfouf, or any other kind, are usually delicate and can easily get damaged during shipping.
Some retailers offer good packaging solutions that guarantee that the products arrive in good condition, while others offer solutions that result in the products getting damaged during shipping.
Bohsali Sweets, headquartered in Beiurt, Lebanon, offers by far the best packaging solutions for sweets and pastries.
Their sweets are first packed in a compartmentalized plastic box where each single piece resides in its own dedicated space compartment. Then the plastic box is placed inside a thick carton box to protect it.
This solution guarantees that each piece arrives in pristine condition during shipping.
Middle Eastern sweets are usually also called Arabic sweets, Mediterranean sweets, and Lebanese sweets.
Lebanese sweets are just the Lebanese version of Middle Eastern sweets and are known to be of the highest quality among all versions of these sweets available on the market.
The sweets are most popular in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Palestine and can be found almost at every corner in these countries.
Some Arabic sweets stores are available in the United States and Europe, but the quality of the products is in general inferior to the quality of products found in the Middle East.
