No longer suitable for cooking
For the last few years for Christmas I have been making a turkish delight slice, essentially a mars bar slice with the mars bars swapped out. Tried doing it again this year and since the recipe change the turkish delight center no longer melts, it justs turns into a gooey, lumpy, rubbery mess.
Another classic ruined!
Haven't had a turkish delight in ages so thought i'd treat myself, eugh what the hell have they done to the recipe? It's now hard and rubbery, nothing like it used to be and no flavour either. Bye cadbury's , another product changed and ruined just to save money and make a profit.

The chocolate bar itself is ok but why do companies feel the need to constantly deceive consumers.
60 percent less fat. What, is your chocolate bar a healthy alternative.
What about the high sugar content. Don’t nonsense me with your false advertising. I would sooner buy the product if you didn’t insult my intelligence by including’ ‘60 percent less fat’, then cranking up the sugar content.

Tastes nothing like Turkish delight. It's just a thick artificial tasting jelly. Gross.
I suggest Cadbury tries some of the real stuff before calling this 'turkish delight'.
The 'real' turkish delight that you find in the middle east is pure perfection, delicious, sweet, soft, chewy, deliciousness, so you can imagine my disappointment with this fake product.

I just love this. Beautiful sweet and tastes like thick rose jelly surrounded by chocolate!
Beautiful taste and texture or rose Turkish Delight surrounded by rich chocolate. Absolutely decadent and a wonderful treat. It is lovely with a tea or coffee for an afternoon pick-me-up. Totally addicted!
What have you done and why...why ...why?
Turkish delight was one of my favorite chocolate indulgences.....but this new mooshy texture of the jelly, if can call it that, is horrid. Won't be buying again unless they go back to the previous recipe.

What Happened, I purchased Turkish Disgust
Decided to buy myself a treat and purchased the party pack 12 pieces, what a waste of money that was. This is unedible and has gone in the bin. Now I need to read reviews prior to purchasing chocolate bars.
Bitterly disappointed with the “revamp” 60 % less fat Turkish Delight
Always enjoyed the original TurkishDelight but the 60 % less fat is a totally different product with a totally different flavour .. I eagerly anticipated a certain flavour and instead encountered something that tasted like rotten condensed milk
My other concern was the misleading packaging .. same colours and design to disguise the add on of “60% less fat” at the top .. if you didn’t know to look there
Please return to the original
Why have turkish delights changed
These bars are my treat, and now the recipe has been changed they are really disgusting. I buy these by the box, as I am coeliac and these are my only treat. The chocolate is very thin, in fact you can see the jelly stuff through in places. I use the term Jelly stuff, as I am not quite sure what this is. It does not resemble the original Frys Turkish delight, and now is not a delight at all. Very disappointed. please change them back.

Fry's Turkish Delight Disgusting
what have they done to Turkish Delights they taste disgusting now the chocolate tastes like its off and the jelly is almost rancid. no news on a change either they can keep them its now rubbish
will never buy these again
Changed recipe from a 5 star to a 1 star
Turkish delight needs to have some bite to it and a proper flavour of turkish delight. This change of flavour has converted which was one of the best turkish delights around into rubbish that tastes like cheap unset jelly. It has no bite to it whatsoever!
People generally either hate or love turkish delight, and what Cadbury have done is turn the lovers of their old recipe into haters, and I don't think the new recipe will convert the previous haters to lovers.
Thought I had a bad batch
Used to always get 1-2 of these a week for a treat. Bit into one and thought I had a bad batch, like it had melted and solidified or something, the taste and texture was terrible!. Then a few weeks later, the same texture, the same taste. Eughh, I asked my partner to never buy them for me again.
Then I found all the friendly people here saying the same thing and realized it wasn't just me! There has obviously been a recipe or production change to our detriment. I cannot recommend them anymore.
Questions & Answers
I totally agree with the customer comments re Turkish Delight. I might also add that since you have begun deleting ingredients from your product range none of your products are of the high quality they were in the past. You may well be saving on expenses, but you are DEFINITELY losing on happy purchasers. Could you offer me any advice on when this problem might be rectified?
Hi Fry's I am a customer of yours I eat a lot of your Turkish delights I just got a bag of them to find a miss printed wrapper with no chocy in it I'll keep it in case U won't me to send them
