Turkish Viagra

I knew this would get you excited and your heart pumping!!!  For I did when I saw that they are widely sold at the Spice Bazaar.  The Turkish Viagra is actually a spiced candy commonly sold here at the Spice Bazaar, the candy has an effect similar to the real Viagra because it restores potency and even youth and health.  Incidentally, if you are in need of a love potion or some ‘magic’ spell, this is THE place to go. I had initially plan to skip the Spice Bazaar thinking that it was going to be the same as the Grand Bazaar but thank goodness, the Man insisted on going.  I would have kicked myself in the butt for I actually preferred this Bazaar so much more for it has so much to see.

It’s a little smaller in scale compared to the Grand Bazaar but the offerings from the stalls were simply mind-boggling.  Safe to say, you could get just about anything imaginable here at the Spice Bazaar.

We had to artfully dodge the sellers trying to peddle spices to us but we succumbed to one whom we eventually got our Turkish delights and some pre-mixed floral and herbal tea from.

There had different types of floral and herbal tea available.  We brought back with us herbal tea to boost our immunity/memory/digestion and general well-being.  Be warned, they don’t come cheap, so don’t get too happy adding just about everything you see into the shopping bag.  We don’t know if we got ‘fleeced’ but well, I guess it’s definitely an experience.

I was so tempted to bag some nuts back too but the Man was giving me the eye.  Well, I guess they aren’t exactly special nuts, we probably could get them back home too.

The spices here looked so good that I wished I could pack them back with us but I know I probably will be hanging up my apron when we head back to Singers.  So for now, I’m happy to sip the floral teas and pinch a bite of those Turkish delights that we had brought back from our travels.
