I got to sample Turkish Delight for the first time in 2012 in Turkey... Here is a box I got near Pamukkale with one of the candies cut open so you can see what it is like inside under the dusting of confectioners' sugar.
Oh my there are so many varieties! different nuts, different flavorings, different colors and fruits...
My favorite was the almond ones though.
The closest I've come to finding something like it in the States is the Aplets and Cotlets confection; they are similar in texture, but the ones in Turkey had so much variety, it's hard to definitively describe Turkish Delight.
