are visions of sugar plums dancing in your head yet?

First of all, what is a sugar plum? Let's look it up on Google Images, shall we? If nothing else, this blog is certainly educational. Wouldn't you agree?

And here's what I found on Wikipedia:
A sugar plum is a piece of dragée candy that is made of dried fruits and shaped in a small round or oval shape.[1][2]

"Plum" in the name of this confection does not mean plum in the sense of the fruit of the same name. At one time, "plum" was used to denote any dried fruit. [3] Sugar plums can be made from any combination of dried plums (aka prunes), dried figs, dried apricots, dried dates, and dried cherries. The dried fruit is chopped fine and combined with chopped almonds, honey, and aromatic spices, such as anise seed, fennel seed, caraway seeds, and cardamom. This mixture would then be rolled into balls, often then coated in sugar or shredded coconut. [4]
Oh, okay. I get it now.
