classic children's books questions #1

I'm reading a book in which napoleon pastries feature--and oh does that make me miss Manhattan, I haven't had a real napoleon in 30 years--and it reminded me that that was always how I envisioned Turkish delight when I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

(Evan and I, who have both tried the stuff, had a conversation a while back about what the modern, North American candy equivalent of Turkish delight would be; I think we decided on wax lips.)

So: how did you envision Turkish delight?
