Why We Love Dates!


The dates we are so fond of are a tropical fruit grown on date palm trees in small clusters originating from Iraq. The fruit has been the staple food and chief source of wealth in the deserts of North Africa and the Middle East. It is a tasty and highly nutritious fruit used as a natural sweetener in most recipes with its dark brown skin and soft flesh. Whenever you’re craving something sweet, instead of going for candy or sugar, opt for dates instead. They’re just as sweet and way better for you.
