So apparently “Turkish delight” is something that exists outside the US. To be honest, we really had no idea what we were getting into. Even after a little research we still ventured into this British Snack taste test with no real understanding of what this candy bar would taste like. The traditional Turkish delight snack is also known as Lokum and can consist of chopped nuts bound by gel. Traditional varieties are mostly gel and can be flavored with orange, lemon, or rosewater.
Cadbury’s version of Fry’s Turkish Delight is the variety that is mostly gel and from our first bite, we quickly figured out that this version of this mysterious foreign snack is flavored by rosewater. In our travels around the world and on our search for the best snacks anywhere, we have yet to encounter rosewater in a candy bar. So what does rosewater taste like? Well, like roses! The initial impact of rose-tasting firm gel coated in chocolate really caught us off guard. Although it was unexpected and a little shocking, as we continued to eat the Turkish Delight it became increasingly pleasant. Our taste test panels included my partner, our 11-year-old Director of Taste, and myself. Both my son and I enjoyed Fry’s Turkish Delight. However my partner did not.
