Anyone ever had this? It's good. It's very basic. It tastes kind of like a marshmallow crossed with a dot. like jelly ish but tastes like a marshmallow and it's covered in powdered sugar.

yep. I like it once in a while. maybe have it once a year

it's the rosewater ingredient that gives it its distinctive taste afaik...

the 'real' handmade stuff is the best. you can get a processed, chocolate covered version here too which is alright but not as good:

I thin of it as a proto-Gummy Bear.  These are American,fruit based versions which are much more palatable than the rosewater originals.

Actually, a Narnia reference on Young Ones was the first I'd heard of it.


re: rosewater. the Indian restaurant down the street has these amazing things which are like donut holes in a sea of hot rose water syrup.

Slightly off the topic, but these sort of remind me of the orange and lemon jelly squares w\powdered sugar that I had when I was in Monroeville, PA back in 1993 for the 25th Anniversary of Night of The Living Dead. It's been almost 20 years and I never forgot the great taste of those things! We got them in a candy store that was in the Monroeville Mall, aka the "Zombie Mall" from the original Dawn of The Dead.

That's where I first heard of it too. I've only really had "real" turkish delight in the past year or so. Picked it up for a family movie night of The Chronicles of Narnia. One of the specialty candy brands at the supermarket. Looked handmade. I didn't care much for it, although I can't say for sure it was good turkish delight either.

A version I do like is a candy bar version with a chocolate coating that's been around for as long as I can remember. The centre is the consistency of a gumdrop, maybe a bit denser. Probably not very authentic, but I enjoy one every now and then. First tried it as a kid, after watching that animated movie.

Its one of those childhood food I like to know exists, but don't wantto actually EAT! I have a vivid memory of being in my great Aunt's East London apartment in a bad neighborhood (Bethnel Green inthe 1980's) and there was a big box of chocolates. My cousin Nick picked out all the turkish Delights. I was amazed no one in my immediate family liked the stuff.

Monroeville maill in Monreoville, PA? Yep it's still there last I heard. However when I went the skating rink wasn't there, instead it became a big food court, which is where I got the candies from. It was weird walking thru the "Zombie Mall" too.  Cool thing was I remember all the spots from the movie and that made it even cooler.

Those ones covered in chocolate aren't authentic, though some are tasty.  Proper Turkish Delight is delicious and just melts in your mouth. [Am a fan, and luckily have a few restaurants within walking distance that have the 'good stuff'.]

I rather enjoy many treats in the general category of 'jellies', so I was almost shocked to find I actively dislike Turkish Delight.   Bluesad  Oh well: more for the rest of you!

Same here. The actual Turkish Delight we tried was not a hit at our house, although gumdrops, wine gums and especially ju jubes are favourites. And I really like a Big Turk bar every now and then.

By the way, I've been wondering if the "joob joob" pronunciation of ju jube is a Canadian thing, something more widespread or just common in the area where I grew up. I know I hear it pronounced "joojoo bee" on American TV shows, which makes sense when you look at the spelling, but where I come from, we always called them "joob joobs."
