Flying saucer (confectionery)
Flying saucers (Flemish: Zure ouwels) are small spheroidal capsules of sherbet-filled rice paper. The first flying saucers were produced in the early 1950s when an Antwerp based producer of communion wafers, Belgica, faced a decline in demand for their product, an account confirmed by Astra, the company which now owns the Belgica brand. Flying saucers are officially registered as a traditional product of Flanders. They remain a popular sweet in Belgium and the United Kingdom. Flying saucers came 12th in a 2009 poll among adults for 'Britain's top sweets'.
