There’s nothing better than real Turkish Delight, one of the oldest sweets in the world and the product of many legends. We at Truede really believe that, which is why our Turkish Delight is hand made by artisans in Istanbul, Turkey, the way it has always been made.
The pomegranate is an ancient fruit with a rich history in myth, symbol, art, medicine and religion. Often referred to as ‘the divine fruit’, the pomegranate is considered by many to be a ‘super-food’. Its jewel like seeds have been used for medicinal purposes for millennia. Packed with powerful antioxidants and vitamins, this ruby-red fruit has been shown to be a cure-all for just about any ailment. As we only use natural flavours from real plant extracts, you’re sure to feel the benefits of our ingredients whilst being delighted by the taste.
This resolve to high quality even extends to our design. In the Ottoman Empire, the most important centre for ceramics and tile making was Iznik. Countless examples of mosques and tombs not only in Istanbul but all over the empire were adorned with the products of the Iznik potters’ skill. These designs were far more technically advanced than anything that had come before, and the beautiful result can be seen on our boxes.
