medjool dates in Toronto
Has anyone bought medjool dates from Nasr or Arz lately?
I'm curious to hear what the going rate is. I paid $6.99/lb at a non- Middle Eastern shop, and not sure whether the prices are significantly better on Lawrence East.
Also, would the quality at Nasr/Arz/elsewhere be significantly higher than what one finds at a Sun Valley/Whole Foods/Pusateri's? Or is it pretty much the same product?
Thanks for any comments.
I bought a box of medjool dates grown in California from NoFrills recently.
Although Californian, they were the real deal -- large and tasty. The price escapes me at the moment, but seeing as it was NoFrills I think they were reasonable.
i just go into a Turkish or Armenian restaurant and buy one of the many boxes they sell. they are tasty and cheap but...i wonder what kind of preservatives are in there.

I bought dates at No Frills a few weeks ago and they were AWESOME. Stuffed them with a mix of mascarpone and goat cheese and wrapped them in proscuitto. AMAZING. those apps flew!
