At Marmara, we take great pride in ensuring our delights are made from real fruit extracts and protein rich nuts. Our Turkish Delights are eaten as dessert or tea time treats. So indulge your sweet tooth with fruity flavors or nutty morsels and share the delight! *Our Premium varieties consist largely of chopped almonds, pistachios, and hazelnuts or walnuts bound by the gel-like sweet treat; traditional varieties are often flavored with rosewater, orange, or lemon. The confection is often packaged and eaten in small cubes dusted with icing sugar or coconut to prevent clinging. In the production process, soapwort may be used as an emulsifier. It also give the same texture and taste as marshmallows, but all vegetarian! The origin of our confection is known to be during the Ottoman Empire in the 1700s. The story is that the Sultan demanded his chefs to create a new dessert to have with his tea that was soft and chewy. They came up with the first ever Rose flavored Turkish Delight. It was soft and did not chip the Sultan's tooth, and so it became a lovely sweet treat to enjoy.
