I read about the sugarplum from Andy's Orchard in the Silcon Valley Metro: http://www.metroactive.com/metro/11.2...

Luckily my co-worker was able to get me one. It's basically a stuffed prune filled with nuts, honey, and a dried cherry in the middle. Cost $2.25 individually, 3 in a bag for $6.50; 8 oz for $10; 1 lb for $19.50. It's a sweet and good for a pretty healthy dessert.

From Andy's Orchard's website:
"Our California version is made with dried apricots, walnuts, almonds, fresh lemon juice and pure honey with a little added sugar. This incredibly rich and flavorful filling is wrapped in a large, sweet dried plum. (Formerly called prunes.

)

Except for a touch of rum-butter flavoring and glace cherry topping, we use all natural ingredients. For children, sugar plums are a healthful alternative to the usual holiday candy. Adults will also find them a festive dessert treat—a fitting conclusion to a midwinter night’s repast.

These sugar plums are exclusively ours...available in 8 ounce or 1 pound trays and in gift boxes. A seasonal item, available only from November through December."

I'll have to try their chocolate-dipped Blenheim apricots one day, they also have mail order available for all their stuff: Jams, honey, dried fruit, etc.
