Product Description

1 Box = 16 oz (454 g); Turkish Delight - Pistachio. An old Turkish aphorism tells one to eat sweetly and speak sweetly. Sweets have always been an important component of Turkish cuisine. The origin of Lokum - Turkish Delight - dates back to the time of the Ottoman Empire. A part of Turkish culture for centuries, the recipe has remained virtually unchanged from its inception. A whimsical tale tells of the creation of Turkish Delight: In an attempt to appease his many wives, a famous Sultan ordered his confectioner to create a unique sweet. Eager to please his sultan, the confectioner blended a concoction of sugar syrup various flavorings, nuts and dried fruits, then bound them together with mastic (gum Arabic). After many attempts, the delicately scented and sugary sweet Lokum - better known in the west as Turkish Delight - was created. The Sultan was so taken by this elegant new creation that he appointed the sweet maker the court's Chief Confectioner. Thereafter, a plate of Lokum was served at daily feasts in the Ottoman Court. Lokum was unveiled to the west in the 19th century. During his travels to Istanbul, an unknown British traveler became very fond of the Turkish delicacies, purchased cases of Lokum, and shipped them to Britain under the name Turkish Delight. Today, Turkish Delight remains the sweet of choice in many Turkish homes. Enjoyed worldwide, the subtle flavors of Turkish Delight finely complement coffee and sweeten the breath at the end of a meal. Traditionally offered at Christmas in the west, Turkish Delight is becoming increasingly popular as a confection to be enjoyed year-round. We hope your lives will be as sweet as Turkish Delight. With natural and artificial flavors.

This is absolutely the best turkish delight I’ve had, I found this at TJ MAXX. It was deliciously chewy, had sweet figs and powdered sugar. Just the best.
