Red Plum Candy

It’s hard to believe that there was ever a time in my life where I would have chosen a candy bar over a red plum. Perfectly ripe.

Red plums have the most gorgeous colors, like a tropical sunset. I hope everyone is having a great week! I’ve spent this week packing boxes. I think this is the first time that I’ve moved and not left the packing to the day before the truck rolls up!

how can candy bar EVER compare with the natural sweetness of fruit? I love how you called the plum a red plum candy, because it's kinda true! Fruits are nature's candies!

My boyfriend just asked me if I wanted to go get ice cream but all I could think about was my other plum in the kitchen!

wait.. are we growing up? When did this happen & who the heck authorized this?

I am seriously craving a plum now.

Good luck with the packing, yet secretly I hope it makes you want to stay in town..tee hee... but the grown up part wins & knows I can't wait to hear about your bigger & better things!

That plum looks awesome! When we eat less sugar, the sweetness of fruit definitely expands exponentially. I can say that since I've had two organic pink lady apples today. Sweet and tart at the same time. Delish.

Catch me on another day (when I've eaten more sugar) and I won't be so sure though ... LOL

Those are *beautiful* pictures.

Thank goodness summer fruit season is coming around, otherwise the tempting thought of plums, peaches, and necterines would've glued me to this page for hours and hours. :)

Those photos made my mouth water! I can't wait till we get some good plums up here.

B&Slurp- I know!! Ten times better than any imitation fruit candy!

Shirley- Oh yeah!!

Liz- There really is nothing like a red plum! Even black plums can't hold up. It's like a strawberry that you pick straight from the vine in the summer. Warm from the sun and juicy...mmmmm
