: Prunes are now "dried plums". I heard this was coming, a while ago, but I just saw a box of dried plums in the store for the first time. Something about aging baby boomers needing prunes in their diet but not wanting to be like their grandparents. Now I'm starting to wonder if they'll be drinking "dried plum juice", or if that's too much of an oxymoron.

Well, I was wondering about that myself. "Dried plums" = prunes with a makeover.
