Dates, Deglet, Pitted - 15 Lb Bag / Box Each
A cost effective, alternative variety to Medjool Dates, less sweet and darker in color. Dates have long been a common food item in the Middle East, where they originated as a cultivated crop over 5000 years ago. Today dates are also grown in the U.S.; they were introduced to California by Spanish missionaries in the 1700's. Dates contain no cholesterol and they are a good source of fiber.
Dates are great as a snack or in desserts. Add to muffins, cookies or scones. Dip Dates in chocolate and roll in coconut for an easy, elegant treat. Serve as an appetizer stuffed with cream cheese and chopped walnuts.

Flavorless; You get what you pay forJul 01, 2013
I bought these thinking that since we bought l5lbs was why it was so much cheaper. They are pitted which I didn't recall reading but I am sure it was marked. They are just flavorless, small, and not as good as my last order of 5lbs from a different company. They were not rotten or anything just not as good as what we have had in the past. Now I have a freezer full of these things and will have to use them in something that needs to be ground up and not for flavor. Disappointed.
good product for the money.Nov 22, 2013
good product for the money. good taste, some of the individual dates are a bit on the dry side. Haleluya!!!
tastlessOct 02, 2013
i purchased this after my previous supplier from amazon was out of stock. It came packaged in cardboard. The dates were pretty tastless and dry. My previous order from another vendor packaged the item in plastic. They were "sticky" and full of flavor. Im not sure if the issue of taste and texture has to do with how they are packaged.
I would not order again. Going back to previous vendor one they have stock.
