What drew me to this is the flavor. It is a little different from the other brands of harissa I frequently use and each has its own flavor personality. This one has a distinct cardamom flavor that my other favorite brands lack. That balances the spiciness in an interesting way because my palate associates cardamom with sweets, while the heat and bite from the peppers counterbalance that effect.
Other aspects that I love about this harissa is the way the garlic is a little more dominate than in other brands, and the olive oil, which is exceptionally high quality.
Nutritionally, this particular brand of harissa comes in at a lower caloric content than others, and is has zero sodium, which is a major contrast with another of my favorite brands - Mediterranean Harissa (8.8 ounce) - that comes on at 298mg per serving. This one not only has zero sodium and cholesterol, but only 51 calories per 11 gram serving. Fat and carbs come in at 4 grams each. If you compare these values to other brands you will see that this is one of the most favorable for nutrition.
This is not only an excellent harissa for authentic Tunesian cuisine, but adds authenticity to some Sicilian dishes as well. It's slightly different in flavor from other brands, and middle-of-the-road in spiciness compared to others. I will confess that I often squeeze a little lemon into mine before I use it, but that is a personal preference. I definitely recommend this one if you are looking for harissa that is both flavorful and piquant.
