Premium varieties consist largely of chopped dates, pistachios and hazelnuts or walnuts bound by the gel; the cheapest are mostly gel, generally flavored with rosewater, mastic, or lemon.

In English, it was formerly called lumps of delight. Turkish Taffy is a packaged nougat candy sold in the United States from the 1940s through the 1980s.

Turkish Delight recipe is a traditional version of the classic Middle Eastern sweet. The resulting candy is delicately chewy and scented with rosewater. Real, good Turkish delight is soft, slightly chewy and lightly fragrant.
