You are so cute. I'm glad you liked the durian. Wish I liked the taste, cause I love the texture.

I'm so glad you got your dates :) Maybe that means mine are on the way!!! They are totally addicting. Your calorie count will definitely go up now ;)

Hi, I am sorry to post anonymously, but I was just wondering what the website for ording dates from the date people is? I can't seem to find it when I google it...


Sarah said...

You can't order from a website. You have to call them. Make sure you leave a message if they don't answer, because they will call back. 760-359-3211

I should be more adventurous and try those dates of yours! The ones I buy are medjool, but because I'm also a date fanatic, I need to branch out and try the many different types out there.

Paulina said...

What's the website for ordering dates from The Date People?

Paulina said...

Never mind about my last question! Sarah answered it :)

Sarah answered your question with the phone number. =)

But the site to look at the PDF info is www.TheDatePeople.net

How far is the asian market?

Also, the barhi reminds me of medjool... except smaller, SWEETER (no kidding) and softer (probably because they are so fresh!)

I bought the "seconds" of the date people and they are STILLLLLL outstanding! I can only imagine what the firsts are like!
