Product Details

A great gift all year round! Sugar plums go back to the late 1500s where they were a much esteemed confection and a digestive and breath freshener after a large meal. Each piece took weeks to make by highly skilled craftsmen who rolled a seed or nut in sugar in a balancing pan over a fire, let it dry for a few days, and rolled it again. Since only the wealthy could afford them, the sugar plums were associated with wealth and class. As for the name: "plum" does not refer to the fruit but to something that's good. Good sugar.

This collection contains anise, fennel, and almond sugar plums. Enjoy as a treat, on top of ice cream or other dessert, or for midday refreshment. Comes with 4 oz in a clear capsule with the history on the label.
