I love gumdrops! They remind me of the kind of childhood magic evoked by candy buttons on paper strips and Christmas morning. And while some gumdrops are made with nasty old animal gelatine, there are plenty of vegan ones! Trader Joe's citrus gumdrops are vegan - and of course we don't have a Trader Joe's here in Nola, but that's where the internet comes in. Whole Foods market also offers its "gourmet gumdrops" which are vegan. If you're crazy, you can also try making them at home - just don't forget the vegan gelatin!
