Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

What Exactly Is a Turkish Delight?

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.
