Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Turkish Delight (also known as Lokum), a genuine Turkish treat, is one of the most delectable sweets in the world. As seen in the movie, "The Chronicles of Narnia," this candy is covered in powdered sugar. Our Turkish Delight is made by the Turkish company Hazer Baba.
What is Turkish Delight?
Turkish delight is a soft and sweet gel-like confection, often lightly dusted in powdered sugar. Many varieties contain pieces of pistachios or hazelnuts, and may be flavored with rosewater or citrus fruit extract. Legends about the origins of Turkish Delight abound. Many involve a sultan of Turkey who ordered his royal confectioner to create a scrumptious delicacy, either to please his many wives, or because he was tired of hard candy and wanted something softer. Turkish Delight was introduced to Europe during the 19th century, and has been enjoyed by adults and children ever since.
Special Narnian Treat
Turkish Delight is perhaps best known for its starring role in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, part of the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. In the book, the evil White Witch conjures a box of Turkish Delight to tempt one of the characters, Edmund, into betraying his siblings. Edmund cannot resist the savory Turkish Delight, which "was sweet and light to the center."
There are approximately 16-25 pieces per box.

“I ordered early, thinking that things would be delayed due to the hurricane. Imagine my surprise when it took only the usual two days! I stocked up for Christmas baking, and got some sweets. The Turkish Delight is amazing, and the fruit slices are wonderful as usual. Dad loved the sample of the pistachios! This has become my go-to nut and candy shopping place. Not only are the prices great, the products fresh, there is a wide variety to choose from and the customer service is phenominal! ”

“Delivered on time with something extra.
I have been wanting to find the turkish delight candy for twenty plus years. Thank you guys for fulfilling my wish and bringing back my childhood memories!”

“What can I say. I received my order next day, even though I placed my order the EVENING before. Super fast. My dried strawberries were fresh and are delicious. The Turkish Delights are so soft. I was most excited about the sesame and corn sticks I ordered. They are my favourite part of a peanut mix I usually get, so now have two 1lb bags of each (Cheddar Jalapeno & Cajun respectively), makes me very happy. They taste exactly like the kind in popular mixes.
Thanks also, for the dried berry sample.”
