We often have potential customers open with the comment “I don’t like dates.” If we can get them to try a few varieties of our product, it is usually followed with:
“Wow – I guess I do like dates!”
Our taste experiences and our opportunity to talk to customers at the local farmer’s market give us amazing feedback from you – the customer! Of course, we get hundreds of ideas and loads of amazing recipes! If you have a great recipe idea – please consider sharing and we will post under Recipes!
Often people would ask us about us about a non-chocolate gourmet date; or something with pistachios. Well – we hired a Chef and we have two superb new items! So superb, we are struggling a little bit keeping up with demand for the launch.
We have our new PLAY DATE, which is pistachio, almond, lemon, and lavender. This one not only looks pretty, it’s like a party in your mouth!
And then there’s our CHAI DATE, with cloves, cinnamon, and pumpkin seeds – this will warm you from the inside out, and is so good for you!
These two are now available as “Double Dates” at Mountain Mercato, Lake Louise General Store, and the Foothills Hospital Gift Store. We will also have them at the Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival next Friday and Saturday.
We agree – there are limited ways to find them, but that is the challenge with a small business – figuring out how to scale production upwards in a timely, efficient, and not too costly manner. We’re working on it!
Meanwhile, we appreciate the ongoing support from our growing customer base, and hope more people enjoy our gourmet dates – not just for their amazing taste, but because they are SO good for you!
