I've decided to bulk up on dates, since I don't like bananas (though I wish I did...). I live in Germany and the cheapest place where I could find dates (in large quantities) so far is HERE. I want to order three 5-kg boxes a month (I can't afford any more). A 5-kg box is 39,90€ and when I buy at least three boxes, I get a 5 % rebate on each box. I don't know how much that would be exactly (I can't do such math problems!), but I know it would be 120€/month or a little bit less.
If anyone knows how/where I can find cheaper dates, please let me know.
Many thanks in advance. :)
are you sure they're organic?
oh and by the way, they are pitted which means you get more dates in 1kg than you would if it was 1kg of dates with the pit.
And also they ship all over Europe.
They look delicious CBraunmuller. I'm not sure if the ones on the German website are pitted as well, though they are cheaper per Kilo (the deglet nour dates by 1€ and the medjools by 0,75€). I'm sure Sheepmobile could answer that, but if not I can always ask per e-mail. When they're not pitted, I just may use your recommendation.
Thanks FruityTooth. :) Though that link leads to the same online shop that Sheepmobile recommended. ;-)
Doesnt matter if you get in nananas or not, once you're getting in your essential vitamins the right way, you're good. Meanwhile, I'm not even sure if I've ever had any dates, probably when I was younger... I'll have to keep an eye out for them now.
Anyone in the UK prepared to spend £250, Infinity Foods have an amazing deal in their May/June - 2kg pitted organic dried dates for £6.60 (Half price)
I'm getting some on Monday, trying them on Tuesday
I'm getting another order if I like them, while there are still stocks. If you can visit me South London I can get you some too ...
Sorry Tom, I didn't realise the £ symbol. It looks a bit similar to € (lol). Unfortunately it's impossible for me to visit the UK at all now and Infinity Foods doesn't appear to even ship outside of the UK. :-( Nevertheless, I am happy for those of you in the UK that are getting this incredible offer from Infinity Foods. :-)
