The official Robertson's site only shows a yellow one under the seasonal candy but I found a blogger who took some nice pix showing the clarity of the yellow and red (which were they only ones we were sent). See http://29blackstreet.blogspot.ca/2008_12_01_archive.html (go down to Dec 27 2008)
Traditionally, they come yellow (similar to yours) and also a dark red and bright green. They are hard, translucent barley candies (guessing sugar and barley water) and come in different shapes; made by Robertson's in Truro and known as Clear Toys. They are usually available seasonally for Christmas; we looked forward to my grandmother sending some up every year when I was a kid. (My mom always looked forward to them since they were a special Christmas treat from her childhood too.) You cannot (! ouch !) bite on them but have to work away at them slowly...they last for a long time.
Thank you, PJ & Michelle ~ am pleased you both liked this puzzle. Have obviously been experimenting with the same image....Michelle, don't recall seeing that candy in Nova Scotia.
Funky and fun and reminds me of the sugar candy down in Nova Scotia, for some strange and incomprehensible reason. (Perhaps the rough, translucent effects?) Thanks, Francine, for the smile!
Cool indeed Francine - I love your exciting artwork :-)PJ
Cheers, Lela.Thanks, Patti.

Only just.....for now!.......

Thanks, ladywill; glad you liked the puzzle.
Thank you, Shirley. It was a fun project. Not original though, as I'm sure you noticed ~ rotation and colour change from other day's runway.
This one's really eye-catching...thanks bookie!..........
Very nice puzzle Francine. Thanks
I like these abstract types, very creative and pretty, Thanks Francine.
