Turkish Delights, known as “Lokum” in Turkey and the Middle East and “Loukoúmi” in Greece, are gel-based confections made with cornstarch and sugar syrup - sometimes special flavorings and oftentimes with chopped nuts or shredded coconut. Square in shape, and dusted with icing sugar, the origins of these dense, chewy candies date back to 18th century Turkey. Once considered a rare delicacy in the Ottoman Topkapi Palace and enjoyed only in elite European circles, Turkish Delights have since become classic Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Southeastern European sweets. Koska is the largest producer and exporter of Lokum in Turkey and still uses the original, traditional family recipes for these candies. Wonderful with coffee – or as a palate cleanser with water before dessert – these delicately flavored sweets taste even when better shared with family and friends! A classic confection during Ramadan and Eid and for births and special family celebrations, our Turkish Delights are eminently shareable. Koska Turkish Delights are also available in Rose, Hazelnut and Pistachio flavors. And, in two variety packs: Hazelnut, Pistachio and Coconut – and Mixed (Rose, Lemon, Orange and Mint). Each box contains 45 pieces. Store in a cool, dry place.
