Plum flavor?[edit]

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:


sugar plums?[edit]

i thought the nutcracker-variety were sort of stewed plums, caramel dipped, not just oval shaped sugar.

Candy vs fruit??[edit]

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![edit]

I read an interesting article ( 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. (talk) 15:27, 31 December 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:31, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
