Lemon Turkish Delight is such a popular sweet treat! Small fragrant cubes of jelly dusted in white icing sugar. Lemon Turkish Delight has a delicious smooth texture with a delicate, natural lemon flavour. Perfect!
All our Turkish Delight is handmade by Sebahat. The Turkish name for the sweet comes from the Arabic, rahat-ul hulkum, which means "soothe or heal the throat". This was shortened to rahat lokum and then to just lokum. The name Turkish Delight evolved in the 18th century when an English traveller took home some of Bekir's produce to his relatives. He couldn't pronounce the Arabic name and so coined it Turkish Delight. It stuck like syrup.
