Cyprus Delight

Cyprus Delight

Cyprus Delights or Loukoumia is what is popularly known in Western Europe as Turkish delight. The word “Loukoumi” actually means “relaxation of the throat”. One try will make you understand why. Originated during the Ottoman Empire, this type of sweet is over 500 years old and this makes it one of the world’s oldest sweets. It is often flavored with rosewater, mastic or lemon.

 It has a soft, jelly-like and sometimes sticky consistency, and is often packaged and eaten in small cubes dusted with icing sugar or coconut to prevent clinging. Some types contain small nut pieces, usually pistachio, hazelnut or walnuts. Other common types include flavors such as cinnamon or mint. They are exotic, intensely sweets with a delicate flavour of sweetness from most of the times rosewater and icing sugar. One bite can convince you about these divinely made traditional sweets.
