    Can someone tell me what these are? I found them under my rain gutter down spout after we had a lot of rain.

    I think it's a type of mushroom, but not sure.

    Thanks
    BTW they are still there 2 weeks after the rain, and they are still getting bigger.

    They look like candy. Did you try eating one? Or at least licking it?

    ;)

    They must be mushrooms. I did see something like this just yesterday in the woods behind my house. (the one I saw was much smaller than this). I know I've never seen them before but we are having a cooler, damper summer than I ever remember.

    Out of my 53 yrs here, this is the first time I have seen some like this.
    BTW: They are still growing.
