European powdered fruit drops in small tins

Where can I order these in the US on the net?
Small decorative tins of assorted small round fruit drops coated in sugar
powder.

Every Google I search wants me to by a case of 12 or is some European
wholesaler.

They used to sell them locally at my Vons supermarket, no more.

It's really kinda ridiculous. I want to give this as a gift.

A small decorative tin of small drops of assorted fruit flavored candy drops.
Coated in powdered sugar.

Everywhere I google it...they are out of stock or I have to order it outside the US.
And they are still out of stock.

Jeesh!

Try checking out Trader Joes...I believe I have seen them there before!
If not you wouldn't happen to be near SanDiego/Carlsbad area are you?? I know of a European Market there that has a very large imported candy section!

Flavigny Pastilles Candy Tins - From France

I use to love these when I was little especially the violet and rose ones. They were soooo exotic.

La Vosgienne Pastillines (Pack of 5) Bonbons ::Cosmetic Solutions


When I was a small child, there was a small card and candy shop at Cedar Center and they had these pretty little tins of hard candies in all these wonderful flavors. If I had been a good little girl, I would either get blocks of white chocolate or I could choose a little tin of whatever flavor I wanted. I loved to save the little tins, too.

Thanks for bringing back the memory.

Thanks for the replies. Yes I do have a Trader Joes near me.

The tins of fruit drops that actually are fruit shaped, never seen them.
Wow...very neat candy.

I was thinking back of just a decorative tin of small round fruit drops coated
in sugar.

I'm gonna follow up on all your suggestions.

Those are great candies.

Also, a simple and very nice gift to give.
