These are not the typical rock hard Dates that you usually find available at Whole Foods or other health food stores. These fresh Farmers' Market Dates are divinely soft, moist and melt right in your mouth. The farmers hand-picked their finest Dates for us. Dates do not get fresher than this.

These Dates are literally the best raw food sweetener available. I use Dates in a lot of my personal recipes, including my Raw Barbecue Sauce, Cheesecakes, Ice Cream, and so on. All the other sweeteners on the market such as Coconut Sugar and Agave are great alternatives to mainstream sweeteners, yet they aren’t nearly as natural and raw as Dates, which are an intact whole food.

Disclaimer: This variety of Medjool Dates are picked fresh and do not go through any drying or preserving method. They are different to the dried types that you find in most stores today. Therefore, they contain a lot of naturally occurring juices and for this reason, there is NO need to soak or rehydrate them before using. We believe that this method ensures that all the essential nutrition is still present. These juicy dates are best stored in the refrigerator once received.
