Turkish Delights are square gel-based confections made with cornstarch and sugar syrup, sometimes with special flavorings and oftentimes chopped nuts or shredded coconut. With origins dating back to 18th century Turkey, Turkish Delights, known as “Lokum” in Turkey and the Middle East and “Loukoúmi” in Greece, were once considered rare delicacies enjoyed in the Ottoman Topkapi Palace and by the European elite. Today, these dense, chewy candies are popular and classic Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Southeastern European sweets. Square in shape and dusted with icing sugar, Koska Turkish Delight Pistachio feature chunks of crunchy pistachios in each square, with a coating of icing sugar. Koska is the largest producer and exporter of Lokum in Turkey and still uses the original, traditional family recipes for all of their offerings.
