Some More Dates

Here are some more dates that I bought from the supermarket and had eaten.
The Bio Deglet dates are a little more fibrous than the Medjoul dates and cost about the same.

The Azizi Mozafati dates below are from Iran and they look pretty plum up when I opened the box. The cost of this was almost half of what I paid for the above.
The presentation was better and the dates came with a good kind of sweetness.
There was also a date cookie recipe printed on one side of the box. So I guess this box of dates would be a good choice to make cakes and cookies with. I will definitely be tasting more of this in the coming days.

Hi Cecily! I just love Azizi Mozafati dates! They are soft & sweet! There are so many kinds of dates out there but I will always look out for these dates from Iran!

Hi hk choo
So far I've only tried four kinds of dates ...not that many lah LOL
I like both the Mozafati and the Medjoul better the the others. Both these have their own unique tastes.
