Candy war in my brain.

Another lost children's book question. Candy armies converging from all parts of the (world? map?) to fight each other, I think.

This is driving me nuts, and my sister says she does not remember it. It had army men that looked like jelly babies with crazy weapons also made of candy, all marching and converging somewhere to fight each other or something else, maybe. It had rich, textured colors, and was a tall book. It may have had a machine that made the candy armies, or that they all fell into at the end.
I read it or it was read to me between 1974- 1980, so it had to have been written before that, and it might have been british, maybe even a retelling of a real war. However I seem to recall it had an anti-war slant.
Please help. I am beginning to think I hallucinated it. But I know it is real.
