Do You Like Turkish Delight?

As a child, I first saw Turkish delight, or lokum, in the BBC adaptation of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and I had to try it. It looked so strange and enticing! Ever since then, I've been a fan. The sugar-dusted, gummy, jelly-like cubes of candy are best fresh, so the only time I partake is when I find them at a legit candy shop. The rose water flavor is traditional, but too perfume-y for me; I prefer the fruit flavors. Some variations also have nuts. Have you tried it before? What did you think?
