With origins dating back to 18th century Turkey, Turkish Delights are square gel-based confections made with cornstarch and sugar syrup, sometimes with special flavorings, and oftentimes chopped nuts or shredded coconut. Turkish Delights, known as “Lokum” in Turkey and the Middle East and “Loukoúmi” in Greece, were considered rare delicacies during the Ottoman Empire. Today, these dense, chewy candies are popular Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Southeastern European sweets. Koska Turkish Delight Hazelnut feature chunks of crunchy hazelnuts in each square, with a coating of icing sugar. Koska is the largest producer and exporter of Lokum in Turkey and still uses the original, traditional family recipes for all their offerings. Our Turkish Delight Hazelnut are wonderful with coffee – or as a palate cleanser with water before dessert.
