While fine confectionary is often made with better ingredients, chocolate just can’t beat dates when it comes to the health benefits. Dates have high levels of soluble fiber for balanced digestion; significant amounts of minerals for bone health; and vitamins and potassium for brain health. They’re a natural energy booster and high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C. Filled and topped with whole, fresh ingredients, Daits are the healthiest way to indulge your cravings.
Fresh, all natural, and made with the finest Sukkari dates. Enjoy!
Come, fall in love with Nature’s Candy™
Having grown in Saudi Arabia, I loved the sticky, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth sweetness of dates since I was a little girl. Dates in Saudi Arabia are like milk and eggs in North America – everyone has them. It was a common mid-day tradition, which continues today, for families to gather for visits over dates and coffee. I remember watching my mom sprinkle our dates with sesame seeds and nigella seeds (which is known as seed of blessing in Arabic), while I also was found of enjoying my dates with a spoonful of peanut butter, savouring the heavenly blend of sweet and salty goodness as part of my own daily intake.
When I moved to Canada, I was excited to continue my daily tradition of consuming nature’s candy, only to be sadly disappointed that the selection of my favourites between Backhom, Sukkari and Khalas didn’t exist here In fact, none of the 100 selections I could pick from back home existed here. all I could find were Madjool dates – a class of dates, which remained unpopular in Saudi Arabia.
I eventually began ordering big shipments of my 2 favourite dates: Sukkari and Khalas and filling them with whole roasted nuts and nut butters to take to friends as gifts. Each new filling I created became it’s own unique masterpiece of flavour and felt like a meaningful acknowledgement to my family’s traditions and valued memories I held in my heart from when I was a child. It became a purposeful mission to not only share a family tradition here in Canada, but to offer a naturally sweet alternative to refined sugar options and further educate people on the health benefit too.
It’s has been my own love affair with dates, which has inspired the romantic labels given to each unique creation, and further fuelling my desire to capture the hearts of the Canadian market. With the first bite, I see people’s eyes light up awakened to this sweet and decadent, yet delightful, healthy treat. And it’s in that moment, I know…they have fallen in love just as much as I have.
It’s with a full heart, I invite you to come and experience the delightful pleasures of natures candy and experience for yourself why it has been undoubtedly a favourite since the Garden of Eden.
