Baklava And Beyond

There main street in the old town section of Istanbul was lined with sweet shops and vendors selling boxes of nougat, pastries, and other confections.  Koska Helvacisi was just one of them.  
I didn't have a chance to try anything since we were rushing around, trying to see the mosque, and going to get something to eat, but we'll be going back through on our way home so I'll try to snag something then.

These are Rahat Lokum, chewy sweets containing dried fruits and/or nuts.  They look sooooooo sweet, I feel a cavity forming just looking at them.  But I love pistachios, so I'm definitely tempted to try this one.   
I should probably buy a box to serve to guests once I get home, don't you think?
