Turkish Delight

So I was pursuing the local Publix (Where Shopping is a Pleasure), when I decided to take a left turn down the “ethnic” isle. At the British section I grab some tea biscuits (to have with my English Breakfast Tea) and I came across a new and exotic candy my American eyes have never seen before.

 

Fry’s Turkish Delight. Intriguing! The only thing I know about Turkish Delight is that kid in the Narnia stories really liked it. So I decided to give it a try.

I brought it home and shared it with my husband. His comment “It tastes like shoes smells covered in chocolate.”. Hmmmm not exactly a ringing endorsement. My own opinion, well it has an odd consistency, sort of like a gum drop or a jelly bean inside, but softer. It had a vaguely fruity taste, it just felt so weird to bite through. I didn’t mind the taste, but I don’t think I’ll be buying it again. The chocolate exterior was fine, it was just the weird gel that got me.

Never be afraid to try new things!
