Greek Delights with a distinctive Chios Mastic flavour.
Loukoumi is the Greek name for what is called “Turkish delight” in English. It is a traditional sweet, low in calorie, made of 3 simple ingredients: sugar, water and starch. Loukoumia (the plural of loukoumi) come in the shape of small cubes covered with powdered sugar, have a chewy texture and are available in several different flavours. They are traditionally served along with Greek coffee.
Loukoumi travelled from Istanbul to Greece sometime in the early 19th century and very quickly became a significant part of Greek gastronomic and social culture. The word “loukoumi” originates from the Arabic language meaning “throat comfort”. Greeks often use the word “loukoumi” to describe something delicious in general, whether it is a nicely roasted and soft bite of meat or a beautiful woman.
