Good thing they have the promotion section... they're regular prices are crazy expensive.
3lbs of honey dates for $27.35!!!! I buy 2.2lbs for $5.00, and that's after the grocery store markup!
The one's I buy are from here, but they're local to Ontario, Canada.
IDK I ordered a 15lb box of Barhis from Shields and was disappointed, I have never gotten Barhis before but they weren't anywhere near as gooey as I expected. They were somewhat dry, only about half of them were moist to my liking and none were gooey. Maybe I just got a bad batch.
Last time I got Khadrawis and Halawis from 7hotdates/bautista and boy were they gooey.
Oh, that's disappointing, but good to know because I was thinking of getting Barhis next time. I guess I will stick with Khadrawis! Thanks for the heads up! :)
Although, we mostly use dates for dateorade, so I guess the dryness wouldn't be that much of an issue. I love eating fresh gooey dates, but I'm always secretly terrified that they'll rot my teeth out. O_O
Oh wait...Peter, are you talking about shieldsdates or harrysdates??
hey mama orangutan- why are you worried about dates rotting your teeth out? is it just the sugar, or something i don't know(eek!!)?
No, not the sugar...but dates are sticky and I'm really bad about flossing and brushing after every meal...so I'm afraid the sticky delicious date goo will get stuck in my teeth and start doing damage before I brush at night. :P
I got 4 boxes from them last year and I can confirm they have really amazing tasting dates. One of the boxes of Barhis we got were literally the biggest Barhis I've ever had and they were absolutely delicious.
Awesome deal for the Barhi Dates! Never tried those. Kind of iffy on ordering 15 lbs of dates I've never tried
Barhis are my favorite date. I have only gotten them from the Date People, though, and they were always quite moist and caramelly.
