Description
From Wikipedia:
" Soor ploom (Scots for "sour plum") is a sharp flavoured, round, green boiled sweet (candy) originally associated with Galashiels, Scotland. They are sold loose by weight in paper bags, traditionally in "quarters" - a quarter of a pound.

They are said to have been first made in 1337 in commemoration of a skirmish near Galashiels. A raiding party from England were overwhelmed and killed by local men when discovered eating unripe plums. A "childhood favourite," they are pale green and "slightly acid in flavour." They have been featured in Oor Wullie and The Broons cartoons.

"Soor Plooms" is the motto of the town Galashiels. There is a Border pipe tune from 1700 called "Soor Plooms of Galashiels".
These are made by Buchanan's of  Fort Matilda, Greenock, Scotland. They couldn't really be more Scottish if they were wrapped in little kilts and shaped liked bagpipes!
250g for 2.50, no charge for the history lesson!
