Is this what you are looking for?
OK so it sounds like this is hard candy with extra citric acid added for zing. Any regular recipe for suckers will do.
I suggest you use the LorAnn FountainFlavor Red Raspberry flavouring and their Tart and Sour Flavor Enhancer for the zing.
You would have to pour the cooked candy out onto large sheet pans and spread it thinly while it is hot. Then crack it up when it has cooled.
