Delicious but very small bag!

These dates are delicious. The Medjool is the kind that melts in your mouth. (The other is Deglet Noor, and those are always pitted because those dates are hard). These are soft and chewy. Unfortunately, they are quite pricey and there aren't too many in the bag, plus Medjool dates are not pitted because it would be an impossible mess to try to remove pits so there's even less per weight than 14 oz, when you factor in all the pits. Thankfully, these are so soft, there's no danger of biting into the pit when being careful unlike the Deglet Noor, which always leaves pitts in their "pitted" dates anyways. I saw the negative top review and at first it prevented me from buying. But then I thought about it: the reviewer lives in Asia and purchased in the middle of scorching summer: I seriously doubt it had anything to do with that disease he mentions, his must simply arrived moldy, destroyed by heat in transit. A little common sense tells me to never buy organic foods (read: without chemical preservatives) in the summer (or hot weather, should I say here in California), because organic foods are highly perishable and very much heat-sensitive. There's no way I would buy these in hot weather now that the smart post means these would spend at least 3 nights stored in hot warehouses and 3 days traveling in over 100F weather! (When it's 80F outside, it reaches 100F in the back of a hot delivery truck, so I always keep that in mind for my perishables purchases). If ordering in summer, it's best to always use next day delivery. I recommend buying them now in the middle of winter but be advised, very small bag and they don't last: these are high sugar content, meaning highly addictive since they're delicious so it's very hard to eat just 2. Thankfully they have lots of nutrients but they're also very fattening. Otherwise the taste is excellent. The bag is very compact so they are bunched together but they detach without problems.
Bought on two occasions: Variable quality.

The first pack I bought had a couple of rotten dates, as some other reviewers commented. However the second order seem much fresher and are very high quality dates with just the right texture and taste. Therefore, beware buying these dates, because they may be hit-and-miss.
Better than I expected

I used it for brownies. When I saw the comments, I was worried about the quality. Luckily, the dates are very nice and sweet for the recipe =)
NEVER buy this, absolutely tasteless!!!

packing is fine, but the product called "dates" is awful, absolutely tasteless, no taste of dates at all! I would recommend to stop selling it online at all. I would like to get a refund!!! The maker is nut company, so they should deal with nuts only!
Good quality dates

The medjool dates inside the package is good and clean even though they are a bit too dry but it's still ok. I will order this brand again.
