30 Bananas a Day!

Best price on wholesale dates in the United States? The Date Company is out for the year. I can get Medjools  for $65 a case in town, but if anyone knows something cheaper I would love to be in the know.

i just got them! they're so cheap and taste amazing! and they're organic!

I'm glad yours are good! I got the Khadrawi, Barhi, and Zahidi from Shields and was disappointed. Khadrawi and Barhi are supposed to be so gooey and soft, but these are crusty and hardened and I can't much bear to eat them. Zahidi dates are dry to start with, but at least half of them are completely dried up and will have to be slit with a knife so I don't break a nail, and then blended for several minutes to reach a smooth consistency of Datorate. I called the company today and they're going to get back to me. Hopefully I can send them back and get a refund! Someone on another thread also mentioned them being quite great, so perhaps I just received a bad batch.

 

Oh, I also got 5 pounds of soft Medjools. They were better although they still didn't compare with Bautista or Date People.
Shields is going to take them back and I will only have to pay 25%. Hooray! The person on the phone indicated that the promotions are not as high quality and that's why they are cheaper. Time for me to buy Khadrawy from Bautista before they sell out!
Are they sun-dried/raw?
In the phone call I asked if they were steamed or fresh, and the person insisted that they were fresh. :)
hmm. I apprehensive to order from shields, cause of the mixed review. I am used to the Date People's seconds, which are better than most companies 1sts in my experience. How moist were yours Jamil and Ashley?
The Date People's website hasn't been updated in awhile. I don't see how to order, do you just call/email your orders in?
I call them on the phone. I believe they are sold out now, but don't take my word for it.
Mine are really moist, I got some from eatdates.com, and these khadrawis are just as moist as those were. AFter storing them in the refrigerator they're a little harder but i think that's normal?

I ordered a case of the khadrawys and barhis from Shields a couple weeks ago for the first time. They were definitely smaller than the khadrawys from Bautista and not as moist.  I'm actually ok with that since they pack a lot better on my long runs.  If they are too gooey, they just mush together in a big clump. I still enjoy eating these dates right from the box and you can't beat the deal. I always keep them in the fridge too.

I've been getting my dates forms Eddie's Mecca Date farm the last couple months whom I found on these boards. I get 10 pounds of medjools for $44 including shipping and they get ere in 2 days! They are so fresh and so good. http://www.30bananasaday.com/profile/EddieLopez?xg_source=activity

Does anyone know how Shields compare to them?
