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.

“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.”

“Received my goodies and couldn't be more pleased. All items received in excellent condition and as requested. Couldn't keep hungry little hands from, 'inspecting' each item as it was unpacked. All raves from the inspectors! Fresh and delectable treats, especially loved are the Dried Strawberries and Turkish Delights. We are a gluten/dairy free household so couldn't be happier to have found a company that provides good, wholesome foods that meet our needs and who stand behind their promises of freshness and shipping at the speed of light. Thank you. Will be back again!”

“Well all I can say is WOW! I purchased the corn nuts, Turkish delights & sour blue raspberry coke bottles. I can't get over how fresh everything was. The Turkish delights were incredible. I've never had them before. The raspberry bottles were so soft, not hard like most gummy candy are. The corn nuts were the best I've had. I shared everything with some of my coworkers & they were all very impressed. They plan to order from Nuts online as well. I can't get over how great your company is. You go above & beyond to make every customer feel special which you don't see anymore. I'm so glad I found your company & plan to order very soon the hard part is trying to decide what. :). Thanks so much!!!
Thank you so much for the sample of pistachios. It was a great surprise. They were fantastic!!Â ”

“I received my Turkish Treats in one day. Wow! I think that's amazing. I love the Turkish Candy. Bought them from a local store in their gourmet section and the bag was the assorted ones. I need to ask if you all sell the assorted kinds. It's a beautiful thing to enjoy something so delicious. Thanks for the free gift of crystalized ginger. I'll order again. ”

“My girlfriend ordered a box of Turkish Delights from here, came in the mail. But the candy is fantastic, just have one or two after a meal and it gives you that pleasant feeling of having a desert. Powder Sugar on the outside is yummy, get a few boxes and give some to friends that love sweets. One side note, my post person made me sign to get the box. Worth it.”
