And here is another photo of another display, so I don’t think that it’s an edited photograph.  At least, not as far as showing something that might actually have existed.

Apparently the photo was taken in Australia. . .and you know what those Aussies are like. . .

And here is something on the manufacturer, Fini.  They’re a small Spanish company, it seems.

” Sanchez Cano, S.A. is poised to increase its presence of the Fini brand into the U.S.  market this summer, offering a wide range of non-chocolate items, from gummies, bubble gum, licorice and filled gums to marshmallow and hard candies.

Tucked away in a small town on the Mediterranean coast, the family-owned company has been making candy since 1953 and operates from more than half a million square feet of production and storage space. According to Alberto Liarte, technical and quality director, the plant is capable of producing 17 million pounds of gummies, 13 million pounds of licorice, 11 million pounds of bubble gum, three million pounds of marshmallow and 2.2 million pounds of hard candy and every month.”

Here is their website.  They seem to have a rather eclectic range of products.  Nothing camelish that I can see there, though.

And here you can buy your own!

I think that we can safely say that these things really exist and really are marketed, then.

Actually, I’ve always heard them referred to as “Rocky Mountain oysters” (when they’re not just called “bull balls”).
