Like I mentioned in my previous post, these dates were a part of the goodies my mom gave me on my last visit to home.
I’ve not had dates in a really long time, so long that I do not even remember. I am glad to have them back in my life.
About Date Crown-Dates
Made from the finest Emirates dates, Date Crown is Al Foah first international brand that was launched into the market in 2009. Date Crown is packaged in a very attractive design that was inspired from the Arabian culture which reflects the wholesomeness of the date product as a key ingredient in the ancient Arabic life style and civilization
My experience with Date Crown – Dates
The first thing I always notice about any product is its packaging and for Date Crown I was sold by looking at the packaging only. It really has that Arabian feel to it. The seal packaging is really good and keeps the dates fresh for a long time.
The dates are melt in the mouth kind of soft. When I compare it to the dates we used to buy from local vendors many years ago, I find them really fresh and very less sticky. My mom had instructed me to wash the dates properly before eating and I did so. After washing, the minimal stickiness that was there also went away. I store these in an air tight jar and keep t in the refrigerator.
These dates are however not pitted, but I am OK with that, as it gives a more natural effect.
Date crown is also available in re-sealable pouches and plastic boxes, but I have usually seen this one with all the local vendors so far
