Turkish delight or lokum is a family of confections based on a gel of starch and sugar. There’s still a lot of people who only know of Turkish Delight as the powdery white sweet used by the White Witch to entice Edmund in The Chronicles of Narnia. However, the confection has a long history and is one of Turkey’s most popular exports.

One of the oldest sweets in the world, going back almost 500 years, the Turkish Delight recipe has remained almost unchanged since the day of its inception.
Lokum has more than 24 different flavors, including rose, mastic, plain, mint and coffee, as well as fillings such as walnuts, pistachio and hazelnut.
Turkish delight features as the enchanted confection the White Witch uses to gain the loyalty of Edmund Pevensie in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis. Sales of Turkish delight rose following the theatrical release of the 2005 film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode "The Whole World is Watching", Baron Zemo similarly uses Turkish delight to gain information from a Latvian girl.
