Turkish Delight

I live half a world away from Britain and never imagined that I would finally get to eat Turkish Delight.  Decades after reading The Chronicles of Narnia, I had a vivid imagination of what Turkish delight would be.

What did I imagine?

Toffee-tasting, nutty chocolate so delicious a person couldn’t put it down.

What was it?

A strange thick gel, like really thick jello with a subdued taste surrounding by a thin layer of chocolate.

So that was a disappointment, but the regency romances I love mentioned treacle.  That was yummy!  Now I just have to find a place that sells marzipan…
