    Default Dates - Love em or Hate em???

    I think Talia and I need to settle a debate

    She has confirmed herself an official 'dater hater' (see the favourite fruit thread)

    So, do you like dates, or hate dates...or not give a crap????

    PS: can you tell that I am bored today, being stuck home with the shits? (And no it is not due to a date OD)

    I hate the whole dinner date thing. Ugh! I would rather do an outdoor thing.

    Not that kind of date, Maya. Are you joking or just drunk? *Is thick*.

    There used to be this ad on TV for Hungry Jacks (aka Burger King) Serloin Steak burger The song went like this:
    Good Looking Guy: I like steak
    Hot girls: He likes steak
    Good looking guy: Serloin Steak
    Altogether: Mmmm Mmmm

    Anyway, My fiancee and I would sing (about me)

    I like dates
    She likes dates
    Medjool Dates
    Mmm Mmm

    Yep, I know, Losers

    I like good dates. Some dates are really dry and chewy. Medjool dates and these other dates I picked up at the Middle Eastern store were really good.

    Hmm, maybe I need to try out some different dates then. Just to make sure I still hate them. I do that with mushy green beans. *gags and pukes*

    I like a few good dates now and then, especially the ones with shredded coconut and an almond in the middle - a California special! But my all time favorites are "Barhi Dates".... mmmmmm, they're soft and sweet as caramel.
    I while ago I bought some from my local farmers market and managed to eat the whole 1 pound bag at once!! Sugar shock!

    Dates should never come into contact with coconut and almonds or anything else. Ew.

    2 pages dedicated to the love and hate of dates. I bet they've never gotten this much attention before. Except for when Stickydate chows down on them.

    that's why I add carrots to mine, put it over rice, and make sure I don't serve it from a white bowl.

    I love dates. especially stuffed w. cashew nut butter. but my holistic health nutritionist said I shouldnt have them.. or cashews or most nuts for that matter and most sweet fruits sooo I try and limit them but dates still hold a special place in my heart!

    at first, when i saw the title of the thread, i was thinking dates... like going out on a date....

    in that case, i HATE THEM!!

    i would rather be run over by a truck.

    i prefer social (group) outings as a way to get to know someone.

    just in case yall care.

    oh, btw... i dont like dates the fruit, either. they're too sweet. i guess i like them soaked & mixed in things, but cant handle that much sugar too often.

    the natural food co-op in phoenix has 6 or so varieties of dates when they are in season, mmmm fresh dates they melt in your mouth and your hands
    there's a persian grocery in north vancouver that has a good selection of fresh dates from the middle east too they come in cool boxes with arabic written all over them

    As you should, Cherry. There is something so wrong about them. Especially incorporating them into something else. I don't like that - that's sneaky.

    Well, ok, I do like them in sticky toffee pudding. I ate one that wasn't in sticky toffee pudding for the first time recently, and it was ok, but I don't think I'll be repeating that regularly. I'm too suspicious.
