Hello fellow vegans!
I've recently fell in love with dates and I'm looking for a place to order it from online to try to get it cheaper and organic. I came across a site called http://www.oasisdate.com/ and was wondering if anyone here had any experience with this site or ordering overseas.
Hei. Have you tried them? I may start to order dates.. :D
I have ordered them and they are currently at the Toll lagret in Oslo. I had to mail them a receipt and a approval for them to go through the contents because there was no declaration papers with the package. So hopefully they will be here in a couple of days.
How did it go? :)
I actually had to pay a fee, but since then I've ordered again with out any hassle dates are free of customs to Norway at least. So there should be no additional cost. I'm going to order new batch of Organic Medjools, they're delicious and I highly recommend them. My last order was Zahidi Halawi, deglet noor and Bahari and were no good, dry and some of them had gone bad probably should wait until they are in season. The Medjool's seem to good all year round.
Try to find a Turkisch shop in Oslo. I am sure they are there. I always buy my dates at the Turkisch shop in a big village.
Shipping makes it expensive.
Now I pay €55,00 for 5 Kg.
And no toll problems.
