Raw candies???

Im looking for information on raw candiesgrinning smiley or well not specifically candy persay, but raw treats like that...

A raw taffy similar to salt water taffy seems possible... anybody got any ideas for that? Hard candies seem improbable, as does Nougat, for multiple reasons:/... I know there are many things made with dates, but im just wondering if there are any types of raw candy like treats that more resemble types of conventional candy, not so much for me as ive never been a big candy fan (except taffy...mmm...) but for a friend im trying to lure towards raw food a bit,lol.

Dates are totally like caramel, you could dehydrate them to get them more taffy like.

hmmm, really? like fresh dates? Ive only had dried ones, and they didnt seem like caramel to me, but I guess one could say they are kinda taffy like!!! yeah, i think I can definitely see that... they are very expensive here though, so that shall have to wait till my income is a bit higher to test extensively,lol! (speaking of which, that may happen soon, woohoo!)

Medjool dates are the best, if you peeled off the thin kind of skin and sliced them up thinly to dehydrate I am sure they'd be just like sticky toffee. Really good, mmm.
