Hi all,

I grew up in Germany in the late ‘70s. We used to visit a candy store in Ansbach. I am trying to figure out what two of the types of candy they sold were.

The first was a sour candy with a consistancy of a sugar cube (it kind of melted away in your mouth). It was about 1"x.75"x.5” and wraped in a plastic wrapper. For a while, these candies had Smurf characters on the wrapper. They came in a few different flavors. I can remember orange, lemon, and grape… might have been more.


Ok, the second candy looked almost exactly like paper. Yeah, paper. It was ultra thin and about 8.5"x11” (no idea what the real measurement was but lets say it was a thin rectangle). It came in multiple colors but (if I remember correctly) the color did not really change the taste. Over all they tasted sort of bland rather then real sweet. You could tear it or bite it but it was flexible sort of wafer-ish. You would buy it by the sheet. Unwrapped.

Please help. Leave a post here or write direct at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Thanks a ton.

Well, I think I have found the answers!!!

After months of searching…

The Smurf candy is actually called ‘Brause-Stabchen’. They are no longer marketed with the Smurf logos (which makes sense considering the Smurf drop in popularity since the early 1980’s). And the size and shape is different but the candy is basically the same. Think of them as a slightly more sour, slightly more dissolvable PEZ Candy.

At least 2 companies make these now: SADEX & Ahoj Brause. Though VERY similar, the SADEX brand seems to be exactly what I remember. Yummy, yummy!!

I bought both from http://www.germandeli.com out of Texas USA. Prices were good and service was AMAZING.

As for the second item, the ‘paper candy’...

I found this too. It is called ‘Ess Papier’ (eating paper). I have not been able to track down a sample. germandeli.com lists this item as out of stock. I did find it on some German websites but I do not know how to order from them.

Hope this helps someone.
