Jujube (/ˈb/ or /ˈb/), or jube, or "juju" is a gummy type of candy drop.

History[edit]

American jujubes

A recipe for "pate de jujubes" was published in 1709[1]. The recipe called for gum arabic, sugar, and the date-like jujube fruit. In 1853, both "ju ju paste" and "ju ju drops" were sold by confectioners.[2]. Later, recipes used various flavorings instead of jujube fruits. [3]
