Għadam tal-Mejtin (Maltese Bone Biscuits)

$3.99

Għadam tal-Mejtin (Maltese Bone Biscuits) are flavorful bone-shaped shortbread biscuits with an almond filling. They are a traditional Maltese treat for All Souls Day celebrated on November 2.

Traditionally Halloween was not celebrated on the islands of Malta. However, All Saints Day and All Souls Day are two important dates for the island nation. These days mark the start of November which for the Maltese is a month to honor their dead. As per tradition, these bone-shaped biscuits are made during this period to remember and honor them.  Today this   tradition has been fading away and some would consider these Għadam tal-Mejtin as just another delicious treat that can be found throughout the country during the months of October and November. Similar tradition can be found in several other countries and cultures, such as the Spanish equivalent, heusos de Santo and the Italian, ossa dei morti.
