Hi Tyson. I know what type of candies your trying to emulate, but the composition of the haribo jellies are different then pate de fruit. Pate de fruit is a boiled candy made with a fruit puree, and uses pectin as a gelling agent. Typical gummies (like the classic haribo gummie bears or your typical gummie worms) are a flavored sugar syrup that uses gelatin as a gelling agent. The gelatin give the candies a very chewy texture, contrasted with the supple texture of the...
In a french kitchen I used to be in, we used an egg white. It works wonderfully, but people dont always like that idea of a raw white. Alternatively you can increase the amount of mustard, and that should hold it together longer. Sent from my SCH-I535 using Tapatalk

Just make sure you get the professional edition and not the 'at home' version.   And I actually have heard of Kapton Hook. It's kind of an interesting service.
