It doesn’t matter if you are craving fruity and sweet flavors, rich chocolatey snacks, or something with a touch of sourness, here are some of the finest Turkish delights worth the try:
Zweet’s Rainbow Sour Belts
These treats are great to eat and to play with at the same time. Rainbow Sour Belts from Zweet are gummy candies of licorice rope style shaped like long belts. These can be eaten by the inch or you can also eat each bright color one at a time and peel apart the strings so you can indulge in them individually. These are also snappy and nice, letting you break them apart so you can eat them one chunk at a time.
Crazy Extra Bars by Solen
Solen’s Crazy Extra Bars are just so good it is almost too good to be true. It is a certified Turkish classic that you will love the moment you bite on one. Every bar is filled with crispy wafer layers and between these, you will find a sumptuous hazelnut cream filling that adds some subtle rich goodness with a touch of caramel. The bars are also coated in crispy rice and chocolate, making it a wonderful combination of textures.
Albeni Bar by Ulker
One look at the Albeni Bar and you will instantly be reminded of Twix. But these two are completely different. This treat is considered another Turkish classic, mainly because Ulker went out of its way to come up with a top-quality treat. Inside the bars, you will find a cookie of shortbread type with a delicate and light flavor that you will enjoy even without the caramel and chocolate.
