Welcome to the Home of Handmade Turkish Delight - Lokum
'Eat Sweet, Speak Sweet'

The origins of Turkish Delight are confusing, but the common factor was that it originated in Anatolia and that the Ottomans brought fame to the sweet.

Some say that the sweet has been made for at least fifteen centuries, though the more favoured story of its creation begins in the late 1700s, when Ali Muhiddin Haci Bekir, confectioner to the imperial Ottoman court in Istanbul, listens to the sultan rant:
"Hard candy! I'm tired of hard candy!" the sultan growled as he cracked a tooth on yet another sourball. "I demand soft candy!"

He marched into his confectioner's kitchen and thought up a recipe creating what is now known as Lokum, Turkish Delight, which is made and sold throughout the world.

All our Turkish Delight is handmade in Bursa, Turkey; the first Ottoman capital. It is soft and melts in your mouth, as Turkish Delight should be. We have more flavours on offer online than anyone else in the UK, with additional flavours available at Borough Market, London.
