so I've been a faithful buyer of Bautista Family Organic Dates (http://7hotdates.com) & I just needed to share with your guys how AMAZING they are!
If you haven't purchased fresh, organic, dripping wet & juicy dates before then you're missing out. Don't even hesitate to purchase from them, you will not be disappointed:)
I ordered what they call "seconds or number 2's" because I'm cheap & they're dryer then the number 1's. However when I received mine ( all 100 pounds of them!) they were super gooey and sticky and down right divine!
Seriously guys. Go. Now. Order dates, they're like candy. sweet, delicious, heavenly, candy.

Nice, thanks for that little bit of extra insider info. Kay so you feel Bautista are wetter, softer and sweeter.
Price compared. Bautista are $55 for 10 lbs. and $35-45 for 5 lbs. Date People are $55-84 for 10 lbs. and $30-40 for 5 lbs.
Both sound like great places to support :)
(So funny to me that Medjools are most expensive, cause until recently I lived on the East Coast where low-ish quality Medjools seemed to be the only choice of dates, and even here in Cali certain places such as Trader Joe's only have Medjools - so Medjool would be the LAST kind I'd wanna order, haha!)
I can verify as of today that Bautista's dates continue to be top notch. These melt in your mouth, no teeth neccessary. I took them to my organic market today and the owner just about....well, let's just say she was excited.
Go Bautista, or go home I say.
Thanks for the tip on the seconds (#2's) Melissa. I'll give them a try on my next order.
Yay cam, another date lover:)
They're like heaven & the numbers 2 are FANTASTIC so try them next time for sure!
