These were the other sweets Peter from Sweets Without sent me to try. I’d never heard of Soor Plooms before and over on Sweets Without they’re described as –
It’s not a misprint – this is what they call this sweet in Scotland!. They are a traditional sugar free Scottish sweet. The great plum flavour lasts right to the end of the sweet and is complemented by a perfet hint of sourness.
So a sour Scottish plum flavoured sweet… Sounds interesting!
The Soor Plooms (honestly I LOVE the name, me and Mr.1T have been walking around all week just saying Soor Ploom over and over again!) are small hard, shiny green boiled sweets that last a long time in the mouth but had just enough give that after a while of sucking I could give them a good crunch.
Of the two bags I assumed I’d prefer the Jelly Belly. I was wrong. As we’d spent all week talking about them I offered one to Mr.1T and immediately regretted it when he claimed half of the pack.
I can’t say plum flavoured sweets are one I seek but I will be from now on. The flavour is incredible! Super strong and just as promised strangely sour with an underlying sweetness that makes these dangerously addictive. The sourness is a weird one, it isn’t so sharp it makes you wince or puckers your lip but it’s more than sour enough, perhaps it’s the sweet flavour countering it but I don’t care – I just want more!!
Well now I have a new addiction. I’m seriously shocked at how tasty these are, why have I never heard of Soor Plooms before??
