Turkish Delights, known as “Lokum” in Turkey and the Middle East and “Loukoúmi” in Greece, were once considered the rarest of delicacies to be enjoyed by Sultans in the Ottoman Topkapi Palace and in elite European circles. 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. Today, these dense, chewy candies are popular Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Southeastern European sweets. Square in shape and dusted with icing sugar, these classic confections are traditionally shared during Ramadan and Eid and for births and special family celebrations. Koska Turkish Delight Hazelnut, Pistachio & Coconut include three wonderful Lokum flavors in each box: with chunks of hazelnut, chopped pistachios or shredded coconut. Koska is the largest producer and exporter of Lokum in Turkey and still uses the original, traditional family recipes. Our Turkish Delight Hazelnut, Pistachio & Coconut are wonderful with coffee – or as palate cleansers with water before dessert. Koska Turkish Delights are also available in Plain, Rose, Hazelnut and Pistachio flavors. And, in a Mixed variety-pack of Rose, Lemon, Orange and Mint. Each box contains 45 pieces. Store in a cool, dry place.
