Just purchased a bag of Organic Naturepops they come in Citrus Blast, Tropical Treat, Cheery Cherry and Wild Berry.
These are made by boiling but I'm becoming hooked is there a substitute for them.
I don't want to justify eating them but they are soooooooo good.

I have no idea what a naturepop is, but if it has an intense fruity flavor, why not try home made fruit leather, we make them all the time, and they are super yummy, hard to stop eating them, they are so intense in your mouth, my favorite, is strawberry and chocolate mint together.

Ingredients for All flavors: evaporated cane juice*, imported glucose (corn) syrup, non-GMO citric acid (from corn), natural flavors*, non-GMO natural colors. * = organic. Funpops are colored using natural fruit & vegetable sources (Tropical Treat has no color added). Flavors are all from Organic fruit sources: Wildberry has Raspberry, Blueberry, and Strawberry flavors; Cheery Cherry has Cherry, Citrus Blast contains Orange, Lemon & Lime, & Tropical Treat is made with Pineapple & Coconut
I am glad you are at least eating vegan candy, however, it is still not raw. As a raw foodist, you are open to so many more options of healthy raw vegan items that eventually you will prefer raw wholesome treats over processed treats.
I an idea is to try homemade frozen fruit pops made with 100% organic fruit juice. Just poor into ice cube trays with popsicle sticks in them and freeze. Do not buy the frozen fruit pops at the grocery store as they boil the fruit juice (even if they don't mention it) and they add additional non-raw ingredients sometimes as well.

The ice trays are good ideas.
They also sell those popsicle molds, whatever you call them. They make a regular sized popsicle. I want to get some so that I can make my own.

I once saw some awesome popsicle molds at Williams Sonoma. They looked just like Good Humor and Fudgsicle molds - same shape and everything.

I made juice pops this past summer with the ice cube trays, and also (when I wanted bigger pops) with a popsicle stick stuck in a paper cup. I had pop molds many years ago but I think I gave them away because I haven't seen them in my house for years.
I have also made sno cones in our manual sno cone maker with ice and fresh juice. YUM!
I realize ice pops are not candy, though. Rawpriestess' idea of making fruit leather would probably satisfy the intense flavor you may be craving.

I wonder if its the "hard candy" your craving, with the intense flavor, could you make a fruit leather and then freeze it? Or if you keep dehydrating it will it eventually turn "hard". Just trying to give ideas.
