Valentine's dessert for sour gummy candy loving wife?

So I'm planning to make Kenji's chick fil-a clone sandwiches at home for V-day with my wife (as she craves them but has held strong with me in a years-long boycott). I'd like to make a nice dessert for us.

Thing is, she isn't a huge chocolate fan, but LOVES sour and/or fruity candy (think sour patch kids, sour gummi worms, etc, as opposed to things like lemon drops).

Yes, lemon flavors seem obvious here, but she's not an especially big fan, and I can't stand lemon bars/pies/cookies.

Anyone have thoughts on a non-lemon based dessert for someone who likes sweet and sour fruit candy?
