Candy That Grows on Trees

My mother obviously knows the way to my heart is dried fruit!!
For my bday/just to make me happy she had dates and raisins sent to me.
Big whoop, you might be thinking, you can get those anywhere!
No, my friends, these are no ordinary dates and raisins.
These ones come from a magical place called Brown Date Garden and are the best tasting, ripest, most fresh, succulent dried fruit you will ever taste. I devoured them.
If you ever need high quality dates or raisins I highly suggest you call these people up. Their product is spectacular.
If you need anymore convincing, here are some fun facts about dates:
  • 1 date=25 calories
  • They contain the highest mineral content of all fruit (raisins come in #20
  • High in Potassium, Phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, copper, Vitamin A and B

And at Brown Date Garden:

  • They harvest, grade, and package what we grow themselves-with no middlemen. They're a small business and the owners are the sweetest people ever. If you ever have questions or concerns, they will answer your phone call. And every box comes with a hand-written thank you in script.
  • Super Fresh orders are shipped within 24 hours of harvest, straight from orchard to you!

I highly recommend the Medjool Dates and Red Flame Raisins. Their Grapefruit is also amazing.

What are you waiting for-before you make your next raw pumpkin pie or fudge babies -check out Brown Date Garden's Website or call 760-397-4309

Yum! I love dates. I bought a pack of dried figs last week and eat them at work when I get hungry. Nature's candy!

Thanks for bringing those delicious desserts last night. So rich, and so good!

Medjools are one of my favorite foods in the world! Those look beautifully soft and sweet. And don't forget they also have the highest natural sugar content of any fruit--yep, a perfect candy!
