WHATS UP WITH ALL THOSE DATES?
WHERE CAN ONE BUY FRESH DATES IN BULK IN YOUR AREA?
Hi there! I live in Italy and buy dates online from a really good supplier. It is called BODE NATURKOST in Germany. They have ORGANIC Medjool Dates from Israel for 10 EURO/KILO which is really good I think. They are perfect - this is a supplier with a great history of organic fruits. They add 20 EUROS FLAT for shipping. So if you buy 10 Kilos it would be 120 EUROS total which is 12 EURO per KILO and to me it's the best price that I could find so far. So it's better to buy at least 10 Kilos or to order together with a friend in order to be able to split these 20 EUROS.
Hi Rashid Ahmed, Welcome back Nate ;)
It's hard to get good dates in switzerland for a decent price. You're right Nate, those organic deglet noor dates in Migros are not really edible, but they have a new variety organic medjools, try those, they're not very good but not too bad either. If you're wealthy try these: http://www.naturkostbar.ch/de/shop/products/medjool_datteln/ or this http://www.dryfruit.ch/trockenfruechte/koenigsdatteln/datteln-1000g... I tried both, they taste divine ;) If you live in a big city look out for ethnic stores.
I meant these: http://www.migipedia.ch/de/product/detail/201263 they're expensive and I don't like them too much.
The first link is to naturkostbar.ch They're really expensive too, but the quality is great (26CHF/kg)
The second link is to driedfruit.ch, they're actually cheaper, but still not cheap and I like them most (at least last time I ordered) (19.90CHF/kg) you can get a small discount if you order 3 or more of the same item.
If you're on a tight budget and you don't have access to a wholesaler, I'd say stick to bananas as a staple
Oh and in September/October/November you can find fresh dates in Coop
Hello all, I am new to the group and 30bananas. I live near Thonon Les Bains, a 20 min drive into Switzerland and I am so happy to meet likeminded individuals. I just went to a bio magazine today nearby and purchased a 5kg box of organic dates for about 25 euros. I don't know if that's good or not or of help to anyone in Geneva, but there you go.
Just an ajoute, the website on the box is www.boudjebeldates.com
I buy them in TopCC, they have different dates in 2 KG Boxes. The quality is very good there.
