turkish delight

Oh! I forgot to mention, in my post about discovering things, that when zalena came over the other day and watched Last Exile with us, she brought us a box of turkish delight, so I now know what it is!

I had thought that it was something like divinity; this is competely wrong. It's a kind of a gel, halfway between jello jigglers and the insides of those fruit-slice candies, brightly-colored and coated in powdered sugar. The box we got was flavored either lemon or rose, and colored yellow or red, respectively.

It's really, REALLY sweet, although if you rinse the powdered sugar off under the tap it's a lot better, and pretty decent. I liked it.
