As the seasons get cooler we thought we would share some treat ideas! Dates are both delicious and beneficial prenatally - in one of our previous blog post we offered delicious ways of eating 6 dates a day. Some of those recipes require more ingredients than others - for those days when you don't have all the ingredients on hand or you'd like an extra special treat we are happy to present you: Daits!
Daits was founded by Reem Aljarbou - a busy mama of two. Reem grew up in Saudi Arabia, where dates are a traditional staple of daily life. After relocating to Canada, Reem was surprised to find that none of the varieties of dates she loved were available here and so she began ordering shipments of her two favourite types of dates (Sukkari and Khalas). She would eat these plain or fill them with delicious and high quality ingredients, like nuts or nut butters.
Reem began sharing her date treats with friends and coworkers and everyone loved them! Daits was born our of Reem's desire to share her family traditions with the rest of Canada and to offer a naturally sweet treat full of health benefits.
Daits is located inside the Saks Food Hall at the Eaton Centre Pusateri's. You can find a treat for everyone in your family at Daits: plain dates pressed in their own juices or stuffed with almonds; protein bars (made mainly with dates and few other high quality ingredients); salted caramel date bars; and of course stuffed dates with whimsical names such as seeds of love (dates stuffed with walnuts, drizzled with honey, and sprinkled with fennel and nigella seeds), first dait (dates stuffed with roasted almonds, coated in almond butter, and rolled in crispy feuilletine), and cloud 9 (dates piped with peanut butter).
If you (or someone you love) are in the mood for a delicious (healthier) treat, give Daits a try! We try it every week...
