Woodstock Farms Organic California Medjool Dates with Pit -- 13 oz
For those familiar with Medjool dates, these are the "Extra Fancy" variety(#3 grade). For those who are less familiar, that doesn't mean that they are of poor quality. It just means that they are of mixed sizes, may have some irregularities in color, and some skin separations as apposed to "Large"(#2 grade) and "Jumbo"(#1 grade) which are the very best of the best. I found these to be delicious, as good as any Extra Fancy Medjools I've had. For optimum flavor, freshness, and value, I would recommend ordering Medjools in bulk directly from the growers(September - October for freshest from new harvest), but if you want convenience, don't have that much room in your freezer for 4 or more pounds of dates, or aren't quite the date fiend that I am, then I would highly recommend this product. They are soft, goey, rich, and an absolute joy to snack on. For certified organic, the price is also pretty fair. I would recommend putting them directly into the fridge however. Not only will this extend their freshness, but I've found that the complexity of their flavor profile with all of the dark, rich, brown sugary notes is more evident when they are chilled. Enjoy!

Thes date are delicious. They taste like a piece of caramel candy. I found out about these dates while researching raw food cooking. Raw food desserts use these dates in a lot of recipes. I will order these again. I love them!
