If you like prunes, try the Shoei brand at Trader Joe's. These prunes are on another level -- in another building -- than any packaged prunes I've had. They are literally the ideal prune, heretofore regarded solely as an abstract entity ... at least they are for me.
They are "cooked" in the package. I'm not really sure what that means, but I can tell you one thing: there is nothing "dry" about this fruit. Moreover, there are no preservatives.
