Güllüoğlu


I was sitting here watching Seinfeld on Fox, and it was “The Opposite” episode from the fifth season. In that episode, Elaine’s love of jujyfruits costs her her boyfriend and her job and begins a chain reaction that turns her into a George-like loser.

Anyway, I suddenly had a craving for jujyfruits, and, of course, we didn’t have any in the house (why would we?), so I went hunting for something to satisfy my appetite when it occurred to me that in the cupboard there was a box of Güllüoğlu lokumu (Turkish delight), which are kind of like Ottoman jujyfruits.

It’s not as good as göz lokumu, but it’s damn good. I had too much though.

... It's not so good as «göz lokumu» - that I can understand... - but even so you had too much of it though... That makes me wonder how good they really must be... You know. as a sin (!) that has a name.
Never mind! Eat as much and as often as like: you only live once!

mmm, lokum. we have a number of Turkish stores around here that sell it. a bit sweet for my tastes in large portions, but once in a while it's just the thing. and much better than jujyfruits.
