    If you don't want to use jello (because it is made from animal products you don't want to know about), agar-agar is a great substitute. You can use natural flavorings for the agar-agar.

    If you want it to be a bit more sour add a little powdered citric acid to the mix. You can adjust until you get it as sour as you like.

    They could be a bit more sour. But they are quite delicious and very easy to make!

    I tried clementine wedges and it did't come out too well. I'm thinking green apples? They are a bit more sour!!

    If you want to make these sour like sourpatch kids - order a bag of citric acid on Amazon. That's what I use when making homemade sour gummy worms. A little goes a long way - so try adding a teaspoon to the jello mix at a time until you get the taste you like. I like mine super-sour like warheads.
