In this instance, does the term Plum Flavor mean something like an fresh or preserved Plum, or a dried plum / prune, or a rasin, which is sometimes called a plum- as in Plum Pudding. (Such confusion over a little matter)
I found some good information on a website called "The Historical Cookery Page" that should answer your question:
i thought the nutcracker-variety were sort of stewed plums, caramel dipped, not just oval shaped sugar.
Candy vs fruit??
So it seems there are two different things called 'sugar plum'. What about having an article for each? 11:24, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
Sugar plum has no plum in it!
I read an interesting article (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/13/sugar-plums_n_2272029.html) that said the original sugar plum has no fruit in it at all, but is a sugar based candy with nuts (or pieces of nuts), in it. However I cannot source the article (considering where it is) so I'm not including this in the main article. I'll research this a bit more and if I find a source-able article, I'll add it then. But if anyone can do so, please add this to the main article.
If I'm wrong about being able to cite a Huffington Post as a source, then please feel free to add this to the main article.
OTOH, the comments section in the above article is also interesting. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:27, 31 December 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:31, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
