I am a sweet addict, also a vegetarian which limits which sweets I can eat.
Had an amazing independent sweet shop which used to stock these delicious veggie sweets, they were imported from somewhere, I think they told me Holland once but I could be wrong. Shop closed down and I have tried to track these sweets down online without success as they are soooo amazing. Description below:
Vegetarian Sour sugar covered Smiley faces, but each sweet was half and half in different colours/flavours.
I have googled incessantly and found all sorts of vegetarian sour smileys but none in the half and half style.
Try looking at Sugar Sin. They have a few branches around the country and you can order online. They are one of the few shops that sell sour vegetarian sweets that I've found. Not sure whether they'll have the 'half and half' ones you're after, but they do have some very nice sweets.
Gosh some delicious looking options at Sugarsin and Candy Kitten ... the sour watermelons at the latter look very similar to what I used to buy actually! Worth a try although not what I had in mind ... still it’s no real hardship to order and taste test these different options!
None of these are the right ones but thanks so much everyone for trying and lots of yummy new options for me to try! @Loyly the surskaller are the closest so far but these ones were round and had smiles on them! Oh I wish I could find them!
