Hello,

I am in need of a quote about turkish delight. I believe their is reference to it in a 'the lion the witch and the wardrobe' but unfortunatly I don't have the book. Could any kind person possibly tell me what is written about it? I particularly need words about the turkish delight itself if there are any.

Thank you so much,

Milly

From The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe wrote: It is dull, Son of Adam, to drink without eating," said the Queen presently. "What would you like best to eat?"
"Turkish Delight, please, your Majesty," said Edmund.

The Queen let another drop fall from her bottle on to the snow, and instantly there appeared a round box, tied with green silk ribbon, which, when opened, turned out to contain several pounds of the best Turkish Delight. Each piece was sweet and light to the very centre and Edmund had never tasted anything more delicious.

Edmund tried to remember that it is rude to speak with one's mouth full, but he soon forgot about this and thought only of trying to shovel down as much Turkish Delight as he could, and the more he ate the more he wanted to eat, and he never asked himself why the Queen should be so inquisitive.

At last the Turkish Delight was all finished and Edmund was looking very hard at the empty box and wishing that she would ask him whether he would like some more. Probably the Queen knew quite well what he was thinking, for she knew, though Edmund did not, that this was enchanted Turkish Delight and that anyone who had once tasted it would want more and more of it, and would even, if they were allowed, go on eating it till they killed themselves. But she did not offer him any more.

Here's most of it. Mr. Beaver later on mentions that Edmund looked to him like one who had eaten the Witch's food.

Read the book! You would love it!

p.s. I made those icons myself. :pleased:
