Turkish Delight is a very sweet candy. It is very additive. Anyone who tastes it will eat it until they die. They will do anything to obtain the candy. They will sell their soul and love ones to obtain Turkish Delight.
In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Edmund Pevensie receives the candy, Turkish Delight, from Queen Jadis, the White Witch. She uses his desire for the candy to make him do her bidding. She uses his desire for Turkish Delight to control him until Aslan's army recuses him from Queen Jadis, the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Edmund Pevensie in his desire for the Turkish Delight betrays his brother, Peter, and sisters, Susan and Lucy. He sneaks from Mr. & Mrs. Beaver's lodge to go to the evil Queen Jadis. Unfortunately, Edmund does not receive any Turkish Delight from the queen. Instead, she throws the misguided boy in a jail cell. There he meets Lucy's Mr. Tumnus, a faun.
