Lokum, the special Turkish sweets, were invented in the 18th century in Istanbul. From there they spread to the entire Ottoman Empire and from there also to Europe, as a "Turkish delight".
The legend tells that the Locum was invented after the Turkish sultan complained that he was tired of eating hard and "tooth-breaking" candies. When looking for a substance that would soften the candies, they found the Mastica to be especially suitable.

The Locum is made of cornflour, sugar and mastica. Some add glucose and some add various flavors. Imad prepares a natural and preservative-free Locum. Here we offer Lokum With Cranberries and Pistachios
By the way, the origin of the name is probably in the distortion of the name of the candy in Arabic: rahat al-hulkum which means "the satisfaction of the throat". I hope your throat is satisfied!
