Down among the chrysanthemums

In amonsgt the stalks of a tub of Chrystanthemums I discovered these three object. I've know idea where they came from or what they could be - they were not there a the weekend.
The are almost spherical, 1 pink and two yellow.  I tapped them with a cane and they felt quite solid.

Any ideas?

    could they be mini puff ball mushrooms ?  I had a white one in my lawn the other day, about an inch or so in diameter ..................image

    Could they possibly be gall ? Do chrysanths suffer from that or am I being silly .

    I wish I had got back to you sooner.
    I took a pair of salad tongs and removed them from the tub and left them on a short brick wall.  It rained heavily that night so I wondered what would happen - I had it in mind that snakes might come out of them or something like that.

    What was really odd is that they turned out to be bon bins - you know those toffee sweets with the flavoured sugar coating! I couldn't believe it. None of us have ever brought those sweets into the house, and how they got there to this day remains a mystery.
