Big Turk is a chocolate bar manufactured by the huge company Nestlé Canada. The treat is a mix of dark magenta Turkish delight, and milk chocolate in which it is coated in.

The 60-gram bar contains 4 grams of fat, which is advertised as 60% less fat than the average chocolate bar.[1] It is typically found in a red, white, and blue striped package (blue on top, white in the middle, and red on the bottom). The ingredients in the big Turk include (from greatest to least amount) sugar, glucose, modified corn starch, milk ingredients, cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, artificial flavors, citric acid, soya lecithin, colour, and salt.[2] Although peanuts are not an ingredient, it is stated that Big Turks come in contact with machinery that also processes peanuts.[2]

The only other Canadian chocolate bar featuring Turkish delight, called Jersey Milk Treasures, was discontinued c. 1980.
