Last month I posted about the delicious chocolate Brazil nuts from Beeches fine chocolates. This time I bring you a treat from the East and an English favourite. Turkish Delight.
Turkish delight did start in Turkey a long long time ago, way back around 1777 in the district of Bahçekapı. It was originally known as Lokum and introduced to Britain in the 19th century. It then became known as Turkish delight and became a major delicacy in Britain.
Turkish delight is a confectionary gel made mainly of starch and sugar and flavoured mostly with rose water although other flavours can be used. It’s of the eaten alone as small cubes or coated in chocolate.
Beeches Turkish delight is available in 150g boxes which are decoratively designed to fit in with the Eastern theme. The Turkish delight is flavoured with rose water and has a slightly former centre. It is coated in a thick delicious milk chocolate which blends ever so well with the rose flavour.
Turkish delight and chocolate go great together and both are still very much British favourites. A box of these sweet treats costs just £4.49 from Beeches and if you order 3 packs you get free postage.
