Several weeks back, I wrote about the tree planting that was done. When the day was over, I snagged an extra pack of some delicious dates that had been out as a snack. I wanted to bring them back to the U.S. to share, but they suffer the double-whammy of being a fruit and a product of Iran. Regardless of their origin, I am finding them to be a very tasty snack, albeit a slightly messy one since they are so sticky. I have had dates before, but it's just not something that was a common part of my diet.
