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.

“My girls and I waited for our Turkish delight and it came right on schedule. We pretended to be in the Movie Narnia, then ate our Turkish delight with much excitement. We plan to share with all our church friends on New Years Eve. Thanks so much for your service.”

“I gotta say, you've impressed the wrinkles out of my jeans!
I was skeptical about ordering thru the net. It was easy to place my order for Turkish Delights but what impressed me the most was, at the end of placing my order, the next page not only stated the date that it'll be shipped BUT the date that I can expect it also. THEN it was delivered a FULL day early "AND" you even notified me that "the package was delivered".
Don't change a thing! You have a new fan!
