None left…

Seeing how my girl loved the dates that I bought that day

…I went back to the shop to buy some more for her to enjoy during the month-long school break.

Unfortunately, when I got there, the guy told me that there were none left, all sold out! My goodness! They must be very popular and it was just around two weeks into the month of Ramadan.

In the end, I decided the buy this one (RM15.00)…

…also from Yusuf Taiyoob but the dates were still on the tangkai (stem)…

…and these were RM2.00 more expensive that the ones I bought before. The guy said that they also had honey added and though they did not look as moist as the ones I bought the previous time, I thought they were also very nice.

While I was there, I noticed this one…

…selling at RM18.00 a box and they were down to the very last box, so the guy said. He gave me a RM3 discount so it was RM15.00 as well, same as the aforementioned that I bought.

Well, it wasn’t one of Yusuf Taiyoob’s and it was kind of dry and hard, definitely not as nice and the almond did not save the day. Maybe that was why I was never into dates – I did eat them before but I do not recall ever enjoying them…but these Yusuf Taiyoob ones are definitely a different story altogether, no price for guessing what I will be looking forward to buying come next Ramadan.
