Very unique taste
I always wondered what some of the old Christmas carols were referring to when they sang visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. So I bought a box and they are really nice. They are also dark chocolate, which is supposed to be good for you. The plum taste was not as strong as I thought it would be - the dark chocolate overpowered it a bit but they are pretty rich so most likely you will enjoy one and not overdo it by eating the whole box at once. I gave 4 versus 5 stars because I would have liked a stronger plum taste - but it may have just been the particular piece I age. Try them - you won't be disappointed.

I have bought these on sale after Christmas a few years, and they have disappeared shortly thereafter. Sugar Plums are deliciously plummy with chocolate.

I only got half of one.
It seems others had visions of sugarplums in their heads and real sugarplums in their tummies. But what little I tasted was great. And the way they disappeared seems to say a lot about how good they were.

I give all the Grandchildren one to put on their pillow and than eat on Christmas Eve before falling asleep. I've been doing this for many years now. It's a tradition that I will keep doing. They love it.

Good eating â¦..
The Sugar Plums were a gift to a relative in Missouri. They said they didn't think there were "Sugar Plums" and that they were excellent.

Great folks at VCS!
I bought the Sugar Plum as a gift for my daughter. The gift arrived on time. However, I don't think she is fond of it. I saw one half eaten and the rest intact on her counter when I visited her. I guess I'll try something else next Christmas.
As for VCS? I can't ask for anything better. The folks are courteous, friendly and you can feel that they want to do the best for you.
Thank you Vermont Country Store!

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Sugar Plums (5.75 oz. Box) …
"I was a little frightened to try these, but extremely curious, because of the famous poem. They are like giant chocolate covered cherries in consistency, but with a sweet plum flavouring instead. An excellent treat for the sweet lover in the family and, of course, any children." - Audrey Ormberg, College Station, TX
"I too had no idea what the story referred too. I buy a box or two every year and give everyone one or two in a small gift bag or basket or use as a place setting, to fill them in as well. I tell people yes, real sugar plums! -- as in "visions of . . ." Thanks for the literature lesson!" - Lori, orangeburg, NY
"I bought these for the first time last year. I placed one on each of my children's pillows before they came upstairs. The sugarplums were a huge success! Of course, Mommy, Daddy, and house guests dug into the box later that evening! Delicious!" - Allison, Carlsbad, CA
"The Sugar Plums are as rich and delicious as I had expected them to be. The flavors of plums and fine chocolate embody the taste of a childhood dream come true. Thank you, Orton Family."-Betsy Barber Bancroft, Vestavia, AL
"I like to share with my family and friends something they would never have thought of for themselves, so I bought a couple of boxes the first year. They were an instant hit, generating a lot of conversation and quotations from the famous poem. Now it is an annual favorite to each get a sugarplum on Christmas Eve. We look forward to these all year long."-Melanie Parrott, Adel, GA
