I've always had a problem doing a review of this bar, and it all started when I was a kid. I use to eat these things every once in awhile, they weren't a favourite but if offered, I'd go for it. Then when I was 11, I went on a European vacation and this trip involved a stop in Turkey. While in Turkey, I went to a place that sold real Turkish Delight, and they had been making it for more than 1000 years, that's not a misprint. I tried their Turkish delight and it was awesome, like nothing I'd ever had before.

Then when I went back to North America, whenever I'd see the Big Turk all I could think is that it wouldn't measure up. Well after that story, here's what I thought. It really wasn't that good. It was more like chocolate covered gummy than Turkish Delight, and the gummy center was not that great. The gummy center is way too sticky and overly sweet. I think it's still okay, but I wouldn't go hunting for it.
