Flower lollipops (cut-rock candy) from ages ago

For a long time, I've been looking for a certain kind of lollipop that I used to get as a child. The centers were usually flowers, but sometime clown faces. Very delicious and fruity. I seem to remember they were European made, and my mother would buy them in Bloomingdale's.

Last weekend I saw a bag of "rock candy" for Christmas, and the concept was the same, though the execution was much poorer. But that spurred me to look on the Web again, and finaly, after many years, I've found a source. I guess they're still making the lollipops in Poland, but the price gives me pause. I'll have to think about that. But they are beautiful:
