Turkish Delight is one of the delicacies most attributed with Turkey. Lokum is the Turkish word for Turkish Delight. They are little cube shaped sweets naturally flavoured with fruits and nuts. It is the subtlety and the depth of the sweetness, together with the smoothness of the texture that makes our Turkish delight the most revered in Turkey.
