: What does The Berries mean?
: thank you
: karyn bush aka:k.b.
During the 1920s Flapper Era, "the berries" meant 1. great and 2. money. From "Flappers 2 Rappers: American Youth Slang" by Tom Dalzell (Merriam-Webster Inc., Springfield, Md., 1996).
I think it still means "great." "That's the berries." But I could be wrong.
