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. :)
i come from germany, too. where i live, theres a "grossmarkt" wholesale guy who loves me. he gives me the kilo for 4,50€. they are iranian mazafati dates, 100% natural. they come in 9kg boxes (40€). i can forward some boxes to you if you want.
That sounds wonderful! Each 9-kg box 40€? :)
i've now found a very good source for dashtestan dates. they come in 3kg boxes for 10€. i can forward them for 15€ incl. shipping inside germany. they are much tastier than deglet nour of mozafati in my honest opinion. they're also a lot stickier :)
also i can forward the mazafatis for 40€ incl. shipping inside germany now.
Hello MrDate, this might be too late. Any chance you're still doing this dates shipping thing? I live in the Netherlands, and i'm still searching for cheap source for buying loads of dates. And i love the juicy/sticky (not dry) variety.
They are cheaper in France! Here you can easily find a box of 2kg for 8 or 9€ (deglet nour)
i was talking about dashtestan & mazafati, not deglet nour :)
