Candy and treats have historically been loved around the world. Many cultures have become quite celebrated for their signature confections. China loves its dragon’s beard candy, Australia enjoys its Jaffas, and France has its macarons. In Turkey and nearby countries like Bulgaria, it’s all about the Turkish Delight. This classic confection is made with starch and sugar and appears to date to the late 1700s; although, its exact origins are unknown. Early confection sellers flavored their Turkish Delights with ingredients like rose water, orange, lemon, bergamot, mint, and cinnamon. Typically sliced into small cubes, these delights are then dusted with powdered or icing sugar. As a precursor to the jelly bean, the Turkish Delight holds a dear place in the pantheon of worldwide candies.
