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…

Almond dates 1

– dates stuffed with almond…

…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.

  1. Only get to enjoy these dates during the month of Ramadan. It would be best if they are available throughout the year.

    They’re not. Thank goodness. At those prices, once a year is enough! LOL!!!

  2. My 102 year old grandma likes to eat dates stuffed with walnuts but the dates are not covered or dipped in honey so they look kind of dry to me. I dare not try them because they were made in China. The dates you mentioned here must be delicious since you like them.

    The Yusof Taiyoob ones, soft and moist and very nice.

  3. There’s a type with a name ‘Ajwa’, pretty small in size, but big in price; delicious though, not too sweet and rich in flavor

    Oh? Will look out for it, thanks!

  4. My man bought a pack last year (1st pack) and it is still in the fridge. This year, he is more frugal. But a small pack for RM3 yesterday. A convenient pack when easy to bring around.

    A year old? Oh my! Why did he go and buy a new pack then? Should finish off the old one first. Good for health, must encourage him to eat more.

  5. See lots of it over the Ramadan period…

    You didn’t buy? Lots of health benefits, high in potassium and all that.

  6. i’m not really a date devotee either, but the ones with the tangkai do look tempting – i would assume they were plucked fresh, since they’re still hanging from the tangkai! 😀

    But they’re all dried up and shrivelled now.

  7. Good eh? I must try then too. Lots of dates on sale at the supermarket.

    They should have them here too but I have not been to any for a while now so I have not seen them there.

  8. I’m already at my 10th box, omg. William already told me to stock up lots before they run out of stock as these dates can last quite some time.

    Good grief!!! I’m far behind you!!! LOL!!!
