My favourite snack is dry fruits. I buy some here and also get them online. My niece dropped by the other day and brought me some goodies and there I found some dates which she said came from Dubai. I have never tasted such juicy dates and also huge in size. I searched the Net and did find a seller through amazon who has this item. I have just ordered and keeping my finger crossed. As you know there are dates and dates. Are they easily available for you?

Yes, in Israel's drama they grow palm trees of various kinds, I personally do not like it so much, but my wife and my daughter love it so we buy it from time to time

I live in Hyderabad, and here, it is a time every year when Muslims fast and eat dates. So yes, we get ample of them in some seasons. They are ok..not a great fan of these. Normally, I stick to peanuts. I am told eating more almonds or cashew nuts is not healthy. Imagine eating only 4 almond nuts or 4 cashew nuts..hah..better stick to peanuts.

There are many kinds of dates in my country. Most of the time we will use them to make the soup or dessert. Sometimes we will also have the raw dates but they are harder. I haven't tried the dates from Dubai and they look so attractive. I am sure that they taste well.

The Middle East is the place where the best dates grow.

Yes, we can buy dates at the grocery store here. I do believe they are a bit expensive.

We have dates here, but I don't buy them. I'm sure I've had them in various foods, but I seem to recall the whole ones were quite rich.

I prefer fresh fruit, but my husband loves dates and figs, as well as fresh fruit. Let me know how the dates from Amazon are.
