I'll get straight to the point: Does anyone know where I can buy Turkish Delight here in L.A.?

      Do you mean the actual stuff or the confection made by Fry's? If it's the former then you can find it in Middle-Eastern markets. The latter can be found at Tudor House, the King's Head or Continental Shop.

        Ok, I might add to this thread. Where can you find really good authentic Turkish Delight? I really like the lemon and rosebud flavours with nuts.

          Valley Produce Vanowen at Reseda NE corner - They also have the really yummy Persian ice cream made with saffron, rosewater and pistashio.

            I believe they carry it at Mashti Malone's on LaBrea.

                There is a Persian market in Attwater/Glendale called "Whole Foods 4 Life" that makes it fresh from time to time. Please note, I'm not talking about India Sweets, it's very close to there, but it's half a block away.
