Turkish delight chocolates are one of those love/hate products. I know a lot of people (my whole family included) would not even contemplate eating a single bite of one. But that's alright by me as it means I got this Big Turk chocolate bar from CyberCandy all to myself.
The packaging is a very bright red, white and blue, which doesn't really convey what is inside, but somehow manages to look both plain and distinctive at the same time. There is a prominent yellow banner highlighting the fact that this bar has 60% less fat than the average chocolate bar.
Underneath the wrapper, the Big Turk chocolate bar has a unique undulating appearance. Even though it isn't really segmented; the curvy shape provides an inbuilt biting guide!
The thick chocolate covering is a very basic milk chocolate with not much cocoa flavour, however, it does provide a creamy backdrop to the jelly filling. Inside the chocolate is a bright pink Turkish delight centre. The texture is quite squishy but is nowhere near as soft as a traditional Turkish delight. It looks, and feels, like a gummy sweet version of a Turkish delight, all wrapped up in milk chocolate.
My Big Turk is actually Canadian which explains the dual English/French language on the packaging. I got mine from CyberCandy and I would definitely buy it again.
