Turkish Delights..

We hopped on the dolmus and went on a little visit to the Turkish delight factory (http://www.servetsekerleme.com) in Calis yesterday.

I’ve been wanting to go for ages and at 6pm yesterday evening, Berkay announced over dinner that we were going out somewhere as a surprise, and that’s where he took me. (: I’m very easily pleased.

When we got off the bus, wow, the smell. YUM.

It’s basically a mini department store, this place sells everything. Handmade natural soaps, decorative soaps, jewellery, key rings, wind chimes, decorative plates, cay glasses, china & ceramic goods, silver & brass Turkish coffee pot sets, oils, nargile pipes, there was even a section for clothes upstairs.

Also an impressive collection of herbs & spices.

The main attraction though, was obviously the Turkish delight! There is a huge selection of all kinds of Turkish delight and other sweet goodies.  There is also a huge glass window where you can look through and see the factory workers making it all. It smells so good.

This is what we came home with, Turkish Delight, some soft chewy sweets and a bracelet that Berkay bought for me, how sweet. (:

    Couldn’t stand the Turkish Delight you get in the UK but the stuff here is something else – so many different flavours and textures. I’ve walked past this factory loads of times but I’m obviously going to have to go in next time 🙂

    1. Haha, go in the evening when the tour groups have gone though! 🙂 speak turkish and ask for local prices too 😉 we got everything half price, naughty. x

  2. I love Turkish delight. Someone once told me it’s actually not very fattening but I don’t know how true that is.

    1. Personally I think we should take that as FACT, good excuse to eat more 🙂
