Fry's Lemon Turkish Delight Review

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently picked up some Lemon Turkish delights from B&M so I thought that I would tell you all about them today.

Before I start the review of this product, I should admit something. I think I've had a Fry's Turkish delight once in my life, therefore, I won't be comparing this against the original Fry's Turkish delight. 

The texture of this product is an interesting one for me. The product contains a smooth yet slightly wobbly gelatinous interior and a crisp exterior from the Milk Chocolate coating. When I first bit into this product, I was surprised and left feeling intrigued as I have never tried any chocolate product outside of Fry's that has the same type of texture going on in their products. 

I know that Turkish Delight has many different flavours to it. I've tried some in the past that are Pistachio and Orange flavoured, but I know that the traditional flavourings of Turkish delight are Lemon and Rosewater, therefore I was expecting the bar to be that particular flavour and it was. When I bit into the bar, I got a blast of sharp Lemon mixed with a calming sweet wave of Milk Chocolate. After a while though, a heavy hit of Rose hit my tastebuds, and, I was a bit unsure on how to feel about the mixture of Rose, mixed with sharp Lemon, mixed with meltingly marvellous Milk Chocolate. However, I think that the mixture works together in small doses, but, after a while it became a bit of a weird combination by the end of enjoying the product. 

Would I buy it again? I think that I would get it every now and again, but its not something that I would go out hunting for them. I think they are something to be enjoyed every now and again.

Have you tried these? Let me know down below.

  1. I love the original Turkish delight, and go through phases of eating rather a lot of them. My local shop didn't have the original left today, so I reluctantly tried the lemon. I can honestly say, it's the worst thing I've ever tasted. To the extent that I feel slightly sick eating it
