Original Turkey Joints w/Hazel Nuts


Turkey Joints are a unique, delicious, seasonal candy created in Rome, New York.

Holidays wouldn’t taste the same without Turkey Joints.

And no, they are not made from turkey; they actually have nothing to do with turkeys.   Rome residents don’t make Turkey Joints at home; they buy them at Nora’s Candy shop in person.  Nora’s is owned by the Haritatos family, which began making the chocolate treats in 1919, and they’re still made by the same (secret) handmade process. No one knows for sure where the idea for the bone-shaped candies came from, but they’ve been a local Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition for decades.

As New York Romans have moved away to other parts of the world, the Turkey Joints tradition has spread. Each year, hundreds of jars are shipped all over the world to homesick Central New Yorkers.

Perfect to parties, get togethers, and of course, gifts!


***Please note that Turkey Joints are very brittle and although we wish they always remain in their long form – sometimes when shipping long distances, they may break into smaller pieces. This will not change the great flavor at all – it’s just impossible for us to ensure that this doesn’t happen from time to time given how these move through the parcel package system.  We cannot be held responsible if unless the product is inedible for some reason.  Thank you for your understanding.
