Full of eastern promise

Turkish Delight, originally uploaded by Chrissy Lewis’ Flickr.

We found a truly lovely little sweet shop called the The Olde Sweet Shop in Wells, Somerset.  On display in their window there was a wonder array of confectionery, including these beautiful jars of Turkish Delight.   There is something magical and mysterious about turkish delight.  It is even used as  the confectionery used by the White Witch (in C.S.Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) to tempt and enchant Edmund. 

I have to admit that we too were very tempted!
