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.

“The Turkish Delight was a great way to wrap up our class reading "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and the students loved it!”

“My husband has been wanting real Turkish Delight ever since he saw "Chronicles of Narnia". This is completely different from the pectin fruit gels covered in powdered sugar that they call Turkish Delight. That stuff is fine, but from what I've read this is the real deal. It almost has the taste of a gourmet marshmallow, but with a really incredibly pleasing chewy dense gummy texture. It's unlike anything we have ever had. So heavenly delicious, even the powdered sugar smells good. Wow !”

“I needed a batch of Turkish Delight for my Narnia-themed Christmas party and found you on a Google search. Boy, was I ever surprised that the "delight" arrived in time for the party, EVEN during an ice storm! Plus, it's perfect for my party, and so delicious that I don't know that we can wait for the party to eat it! (It may be gone by then!) I also was very excited to receive a complimentary package of Turkish Figs, which were a lovely gift. Kudos for your customer service and high-quality products.”

“I had 3 boxes of Turkish Delight delivered, as a gift, to a young lady for her 16th birthday. She is having a "Narnia" party... first off to see the new movie and then a "Narnia" luncheon. Her mother told me she wished she knew how to make Turkish Delight and I volunteered to find a recipe. But then... I found your wonderful website and voila!!! "Narnia" Turkish Delight delivered right to her door! She called and left a message saying we are the best friends EVER!!! : ) Thanks Nutsonline.com You truly made a young ladies' wishes come true! ”
