Hotel Chocolat Turkish Delight

Recently I witnessed a distressing Twitter debate.  It seems, a lot of you twitterati don't like turkish delight?!  I know, I can't believe it either!  Ever since the White Witch enchanted young Edmund with some of the magical rose scented candy in the land of Narnia I was a girl obsessed.  So here it is, I'm begging you, give turkish delight a chance.  I bet, if you let it, it can enchant you too :)


Need some more persuading?  Well how about this, the lovely folk at Hotel Chocolat have given me a stunningly beautiful wooden box filled with my favorite turkish delight to give away to one of you lucky people!  Interested?  Read on, dear follower.


Leave a comment on this post to let the world know you're either pro turkish delight (yay) or against (boo).  The winner will be announced on Friday 30th December!


Don't forget to check out Hotel Chocolat's gorgeous Christmas range, it's not too late for some last minute deliciousness!


Stay tuned for what I have planned for this mouth watering box of sweeties in the next few days, it's going to make the perfect Christmas gift for a rose loving vodka drinker ;)

Nice giveaway! Sorry to distress you but I'm in the anti-Turkish delight camp - I can't stand the stuff! I do however know several people who like it so I if win I'll pass it onto them!

I love it! When I was younger I used to love The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe and I am sure I imagined it tasting nicer than it was. I think stuff like the Fry's Turkish delight is too sickly and sticky, but real stuff (eg from Turkey) is amazing- gently flavoured and delicious. :)

I am all over the turkish delight! I love the stuff, I still dream about Pet Lamb's Turkish Delight Cupcakes!

Fiona said...

Definitely a YES! I can't watch narnia without my mouth watering just a little...

I don't know if I like Turkish Delight... I have never tried it. I did print out a few recipes several years ago thinking it would be fun to make but it seems a little involved. So, I would be delighted (pun intended) to win your giveaway! :)

Kindly, Lorraine

I love turkish delight - so soft and fragrant, and the icing sugar makes it seem old fashioned somehow. Yum yum.

I absolutely love turkish delight! I don't get it often, so I tried making it once.. it didn't work out :( but rose flavored turkish delight is the best ^__^ It's something from my childhood I remember very well, since my dad used to give us some as a present during christmas ^^

I always assumed I wouldn't like Turkish Delight but I actually really like it so would love to try these.

There are no words for how much I love Turkish delight! Earlier this year a friend bought me some back from Turkey and I pretty much proposed to him on the spot.

Good Morning...umm...yummy giveaway, thanks! Gosh that has always been a childhood candy favorite of mine....brings back lots of warm memories for me! Cheers, Valerie.

Nicola said...

I love it, and it's one sweet that's much easier to make than you would expect! Nom!

Becca and Colby said...

I'm undecided. I had some cheap stuff and was turned off. But I'm willing to give it a second shot!

My husband's Aunties (2 maiden aunts) who each lived to be 97 and were born more than a decade before the turn of the century (the 20th) left me a copy of an ancient hand written recipe which I make every year for Christmas. I am not sure it would be Christmas for him otherwise. :)

That makes me pro Turkish Delight.

Jess said...

I had this box last year and I really loved it! Not too keen on the lemon though...

Kate Emmett said...

I love Turkish Delight. It's fat free and tastes of roses - what's not to like?

BP said...

Oh, Hmmm...yes please! Pro Turkish Delight in a way that is shameful for someone who lives far from any reputable supplier! Thanks for the giveaway!

Dollface said...

That's the prettiest box of turkish delight I've ever seen! When I was younger I wasn't a fan, but as I get older I can appreciate the subtle flavors and eating turkish delight always makes me feel like a princess. This is such a great giveaway!

TK said...

I never tried turkish delight before but would love to...so yes?

I am SO pro turkish delight & have exactly the same story as you - got obsessed with it as a child who was in love with Narnia & everything in it!

It always makes me think of Christmas and sitting in front of the fire at my mum & dad's house.

i love turkish delight, ever since i was young and wathed the fry's turkish delight advert i have loved it. i love adding it to brownies, adding it to rocky road chocolate mix, adding it to cookies. the options are truly endless!

Lauren said...

Turkish delight is wonderful. I love its fragrance and its evocative exoticism. I love this wooden box too. It really highlights the white of the icing sugar and pale colours nicely. Thanks for a lovely, edible giveaway!

Pro! Ever since I was very young I've had a crush on Edmund, so I grew to love Turkish Delight just as much as he did. (You can contact me at rosycheeked.tumblr.com)
