These taste nothing like the dates in grandma’s fruitcake. Not only can you introduce friends and family to something absolutely scrumptious, but organic dates also are incredibly nutritious, which is why they make such a healthy food gift.
Springfield, MO (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
The Date Lady™ is introducing a new healthy food gift for savvy holiday shoppers who are looking for delicious and healthy food gifts that also are budget-friendly.
The new healthy food gift is available at ILoveDateLady.com and includes a resealable bag of The Date Lady’s special variety of kosher and organic dates, which are a sweet, but nutritious, treat with hints of spice cake, caramel candy and brown sugar, along with a choice of Date Lady Organic Date Syrup or Date Lady Caramel Sauce, said Colleen Sundlie, company founder. All Date Lady products are organic, kosher, vegan and gluten free.
The products are packaged with a reusable bright orange tote bag for a gift that’s ready to go, and at $14.99, it makes great hostess gift and an inexpensive food gift for Christmas or other holidays, Sundlie added.
“These taste nothing like the dates in grandma’s fruitcake,” she says. “Not only can you introduce friends and family to something absolutely scrumptious, but organic dates also are incredibly nutritious, which is why they make such a healthy food gift. At just $14.99, it also appeals to those looking for creative and inexpensive food gift ideas that will be appreciated by everyone from next door neighbors to the kids’ teachers.”
The Date Syrup is made from 100 percent organic dates, and the caramel sauce has just three simple ingredients, organic date syrup, natural caramel flavor and sea salt. Nutritionally, dates are high fiber and rich in potassium, and are a good source of iron, magnesium, antioxidants and vitamin B-6, Sundlie said.
Date syrup is a very versatile ingredient that makes an excellent substitute for processed sugar in sweet and savory dishes, including muffins, scones and cake pops as well as barbecue sauce, salad dressing and gravies, she said. Both the date syrup and caramel sauce may be used as a condiment drizzled over pancakes, waffles, ice cream and yogurt in place of commercial syrups or over goat and other cheeses, and even in lattes for a rich undercurrent of flavor.
“I discovered date syrup while my family was living in the Middle East and fell in love with the taste, the nutritional benefits for my family, and how delicious it is in so many dishes,” Sundlie says. “I have come up with dozens of recipes, which are on the ILoveDateLady.com website along with many delicious recipes that our community of customers has developed as well.”
Date Lady Organic Dates are available in a resealable 8-ounce pouch with a suggested retail price of $6.99, and Date Lady Date Syrup and Date Lady Caramel Sauce are available in 12-ounce jars with suggested retail prices respectively of $7.99 and $8.99.
