Turkish Delight


A well-nigh transfinite number of readers emailed in with places where I can get Turkish Delight. I settled on this one (See under “Sweets & Pastries”.) Since they have confirmed my order, I can give away the secret. Many thanks to all who offered suggestions.

One reader, no doubt trying to be helpful, sent this: “Mr.
Derbyshire–More than 80 percent of American tasters of Turkish Delight will not finish the box. Tell them to send their unfinished boxes to you!! Win-Win. And the Derb kids win, too.”

No, Sir, I tired that with Marmite. Now I have a basement full of the stuff.
