I haven't tested, but I think you need something like below

update Products
  from Products P1
   set ItemsSold + (select sum(P2.ItemSold) from Products P2
                     where P2.BusDate is not in (select BusDate from BusinessDates)
                       and P2.Busdate > (select max(B.BusDate) from BusinessDates B
                                          where B.BusDate < P1.BusDate)
                       and P2.Busdate < P1.Busdate)
                            )

countrymeister,
Here is a Select query - I have added a column that shows what will be NewTotalOfItemsSoldForTheDay. If this looks fine, this can easily be changed to an update query.
 
SELECT a.Product, a.ProductId, a.BusDate, a.ItemsSold
          ,a.ItemsSold + (select sum(ItemsSold) 
              from Products b 
            where b.Product = a.Product 
                and b.ProductId=a.ProductId 
                and b.Busdate < a.BusDate
                and b.Busdate > (Select Max(BusDate) from BusDates c where c.BusDate < a.BusDate)
             ) AS NewTotalOfItemsSoldForTheDay
FROM Products a
 where exists (Select BusDate from BusDates d where d.BusDate = a.BusDate)
Order by 1,2,3
