Turkish Delight – good or evil?

A good friend of mine swears blind that Turkish Delight are evil!

“After all,” he quips, “the White Witch used them to tempt Edmund in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!”

Cue animated discussion – he couldn’t be more wrong in most people’s minds, Turkish Delight is far too delicious and won’t turn the neighbourhood into a winter wonderland.

But Turkish Delight still runs the risk of being evil in the minds of most Vegans or Coeliacs.

That’s because, if it’s a cheap Turkish Delight, it typically contains gelatine which vegans refuse and a variety of other ingredients (like glucose syrup) are suspect for coeliacs.

A traditional Turkish Delight however should leave you free from those concerns. Delights such as those made by Koska are created from only natural ingredients, they are GM Free and Gluten Free, and suitable for vegan and kosher diets.

As a family firm Koska has been using the same original recipe for over one hundred years!

Their sweets come with pistachio, rose & lemon flavour, hazelnut & coconut or mixed flavour.

So you, like Edmund, can indulge to your heart’s content – just don’t freeze out the rest of us when you open the box.

    1. Fair question. I don’t think it’s going to be too safe on that score – the sugar content is so high.
