Gumdrops: by wikipedia encyclopedia
Gumdrops are a type of confectionery (candy). They are usually brightly-colored gelatin- or pectin-based pieces, shaped like a truncated cone and coated in granulated sugar. This makes them very sweet. Gumdrops come in (usually artificial) fruit and spice varieties; the latter are also known as spice drops. They are often used for decorating cakes and cupcakes. Around Christmas time this candy is a key ingredient in making gingerbread houses.

Gumdrop Memories: by Pam Svoboda
When I was a little girl my Mother always put out a plastic gumdrop tree on the counter in the kitchen. She would push the fruit flavored candies on the tips of each tree limb which could be pulled off and eaten. The base of the tree was a bowl which Mother would fill with extra gumdrops. I remember how I use to just stare at the candy and remember how colorful the candy tree was. I remember how Mother would check the tree everyday and re-load the branches with gumdrops. That December tree never did run out of candy. The sugar coated candy reminded me of snow or frost on a tree.
