30 Bananas a Day!

One more date thread.... What does 10lbs of dates look like?

I am ordering dates for the first time and I am wondering how much to order. I do not even know if I like them very much because what is available locally is poor quality.

How many dates (roughly) are in a pound?

Ever seen those little pint containers for cherry tomatoes? Ten of those full to the brim. Maybe eleven.
So how much is a typical meal? Half a pound?
Uhm ...... A big box!
I can't make a meal out of them personally, or at least not yet. I do well to use six or so to boost a banana smoothie.
I ordered 10 pounds a few weeks ago.  It came in a big box and I was able to fit them all in 5 quart sized zip-lock bags.  I don't eat whole meals of them so they will last quite a while for me...so I put mine in the freezer to last longer.  I only eat about 5-15 at a time because they are super sweet.  Or I mix them in smoothies or other recipes.  But if you were making daterade or eating meals of them, then 10 pounds would probably be eaten pretty fast.
Thank you so much! I think I will be using dates a lot like you do.........at least at first. Thanks that helped alot.
I just received ten pounds today from The Date People. I just happily gourged myself on them.omg! Even for those on a tight budget I'd highly recommend these as an important, delicious food source.
