Big Turk is a candy bar manufactured by Nestlé in Canada, that consists of dark magenta Turkish delight coated in a chocolate coating.

Overview[edit]

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 Big Turk bars include sugar, glucose, modified corn starch, cocoa butter, milk ingredients, unsweetened chocolate, black carrot concentrate, soy lecithin, natural flavor, citric acid, salt. Even though peanuts are not an ingredient it is advised that the bars come in contact with machinery that also processes peanuts.

The 60-gram (2.1 oz) bar contains 4 grams (0.14 oz) of fat, which is advertised as 60% less fat than the average chocolate bar.[1]

The other Canadian candy bar featuring Turkish delight, Jersey Milk Treasures, was discontinued c. 1980, however Fry's Turkish Delight, manufactured in Poland, are sold in Canada.
