Fry's Turkish Delight

Classic Fry's Turkish Delight commercials from the 1960s and 1980s

Fry's Turkish Delight is now made by Cadbury, but was formerly made by J. S. Fry & Sons. It was launched in the UK in 1914. Fry's Turkish Delight consists of rose-flavoured Turkish delight surrounded by milk chocolate. J.S. Fry & Sons merged with Cadbury in 1919. The J.S. Fry & Sons company can be traced back to 1728.

The tag-line "Full of Eastern Promise" is used for television commercials in the United Kingdom. The voice-over in the first featured commercial is provided by the actor Anthony Valentine. The late actor and model Jane Lumb was one of the very first 'Turkish Delight girls' in the 1960s. The first featured commercial from the 1980s is still occasionally aired, usually in the early hours of the morning!*
