Not a really PC name, but it really is a delight

A writer in Slate is savaging Turkish Delight (the candy of temptation in Lion, the Witch, etc., which opens today). I don't know of what the author speaks, but I thought I should mention that Canadians (which really do seem to have better candy bars than in the States for some reason) have long had access to the Nestle "Big Turk" candy bar, which if not worth selling your siblings into slavery for, is certainly not disgusting. I have no idea how it maps onto the Fry's Turkish Delight bar you find in Britain/Australia.
