Easter Treat: Turkish Delights

If you’re Christian, here in the United States, you might be enjoying some favorite Easter candy over the weekend — say a chocolate bunny or a few jelly beans. But in Europe a traditional Easter basket would include a special candy from Turkey. ABC’s Ben Barnier visited the shop in Istanbul  — not far from the famous Blue Mosque — where Turkish Delights were invented more than 200 years ago. The Haci Bekir Company sells Turkish Delights in the U.S., Europe and Asia, but they sell three tons of the candies each year in Turkey alone.
