Candy with Arabic flavors ! The white ones in the left corner bottom row are nougats, the local favorites , made from milk and pistachio nuts and flavored with rose water.
Do enlarge to see the "sheesha" (hubble bubble) in the right corner . It is used to smoke tobacco through a vapors of steam.
The all time favorites ..lollipops !!
These a made from fruit pulp ..like peaches , apricots plums.
Now these ..though technically not candy per se ..but they are a local sweet so I thought I would put it up . A little like profiteroles .. yeast is added to make a batter of which little balls are deep fried and then dunked in a light syrup of honey and saffron.
