Turkish Delight. Authentic, All-Natural


Candy… As Medicine?!

Well actually, Turkish Delight was a medicine first and then a candy! Can you believe this delightful treat was originally sold in 9th century Arabic apothecaries as a treatment for sore throats? The sugar was thought to soothe the throat.

Is It Really Turkish?

Turkish Delight originated in Ancient Persia. In the 1700s, a sultan loved it, hence the “Turkish” name. A Bostonian later coated the candy with hard sugar and sent them to Union soldiers during the Civil War. That candy? The jelly bean! Eventually Turkish Delight appeared in the beloved Chronicles of Narnia.
