Or they may have fallen off the back of a truck in Tajikistan. Who can really be sure of these things?

These pitted prunes (aka “dried plums”) are a store brand from CVS. The carton looks normal enough from the front.

I was idly reading the label last night when I read the origin(s) of the fruit.

    Unbelievable. And yet, not surprising. Good golly, Miss Molly!

    You know, there is a growing fan-base for reviews that are posted on Amazon. Let’s see how many “likes” I can get by posting the most extreme review ever!

    Maybe the same thing is happening here? Let’s see who is paying attention?
