I've had Turkish Delight...twice? Three times? I really liked it all three times. The third time it was actually imported from Turkey, so the stuff itself was better (of course) even though I wasn't as keen on the flavor options as I was the first two times. I mean, seriously, coconut and walnut?? Come on...where's my lemon and rose water? I guess Koreans just aren't into the original flavors. (I agree with you, Tooky, that the lemon is better.)
I've not tried making it. I've heard a lot of horror stories about how badly it turned out when others made it.
I would not
sell my family for it. It was good, of course; but I hope I'm not that corruptible.
