    Anybody knows how to call those fruit sweets similar to chocolates in shape we call "bombón de fruta" in Argentina?

    Having looked at photos of them on the web, I would call them fruit pastilles.

    I've looked up "pastille" in the Oxford dictionary and I don't think it is the same as bombón de fruta in Spanish. It says it's a sweet you suck and that's not what you generally do with a bombón de fruta. You usually bite it and chew it before you swallow it. I'm afraid pastille isn't the best translation.

    Then wouldn't they be fruit jellies, or fruit chews?
