Thanks Dina. I added quite a bit of citric acid to make it a little sour.

I think just about any flavoring could be used here - don't you? Yea, I never liked the ones heavy on the peppermint - yuck! Even raspberry gobo! Or apple?

You could really play with the colors too. I remember the ones that weren't quite so vibrant. Also, the link I provided...those are pretty thick. I don't know if it would take a machine to get it thinner though. No candy-making experience here, that's for sure!!!
