    What is date spread?

    In a word: Awesome. But in more words date spread is similar in concept to fig butter, apple butter, or peanut butter, but DATE based. We basically mash up dates, water, and our favorite natural flavorings to create sweet, creamy, spreadable dates!

    What is date dough?

    Date Dough as a dry blend of ground dates, coconut flour, almond flour, and a flavor. That's it! There's nothing else like it. Date dough offers the experience of eating actual cookie dough, that is 100% vegan, paleo, grain-free, and keto-friendly without added sugar. All you have to do is add two tablespoons of water to a serving of date dough mix & you have ready to eat, plant-based dough, no baking required. Although we do include instructions on the back of each pouch on how you can bake actual date dough cookies!

    I've never eaten a date, what does it taste like?

    Some people say that dates taste like caramel. Other people (like me) think that dates taste like mini glazed doughnut holes! Regardless, dates are one of the most delicious, naturally sweet fruits out there! They are a fantastic source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. You MUST try them!

    What kind of dates do you use?

    Deglet Noor Dates

    Is "Wanna Date?" vegan?


    Gluten free?

    Our date spreads are all nut free! Please note that we use almond flour & coconut flour in each flavor of date dough.

    Dairy free?


    Soy free?


    Allergen friendly?

    Yes! Our date spreads are all allergen friendly. Please note that we use almond flour & coconut flour in each of our date doughs. 



    Is there any added sugar?

    Nope! Nada. Zero. We sweeten with dates. 

    There's an ingredient in date spread called "lactic acid" in every date spread, what is lactic acid?

    Lactic acid is produced naturally through fermentation and can be found in a variety of food products such as sourdough bread, salad dressings, and more! Like many food manufacturers we use lactic acid to stabilize the pH of our date spreads, which makes them shelf stable! 

    What is the "natural shortbread flavor" in the Cookie Date Spread?

    "Natural flavor" is a commonly used term in food labeling to describe a flavor component that isn’t a 100% pure extract. Artificial flavors, by contrast, are mixtures of imitate, synthetic chemical compounds. 

    In the case of our natural shortbread flavor, we use a combination of multiple extracts in a water solvent solution. It is a unique, propriety (and tasty) flavor! Like many other health food companies, we opt to label with “natural flavor” to protect our formulation and keep our ingredient list as concise as possible in the small space on our jar. Rest assured, all of our products follow strict regulatory guidelines and will never include GMOs, synthetic chemicals, preservatives, corn, soy, added sugars, etc. 

    Are you Certified Kosher?

    Yes, all of our date spreads are KOF-K Kosher certified. Date dough is not yet Kosher certified. 

    How many calories per serving? 

    Date spread is just 25 per tablespoon serving! 

    In comparison, nut butters average 90-105 calories per tablespoon. Cookie butter is a whopping 90 calories for the same amount. Chocolate frosting and hazelnut spread = 100 calories per tablespoon (!!!)

    What foods go well with date spread?

    Fruit: apple slices, bananas, berries, strawberries (best dipped in chocolate date spread)

    Grainy things: biscuits, muffins, toast, oatmeal, sandwiches (DB&J = Date Butter & Jelly) and definitely on pancakes and waffles! Try dipping pretzels and crackers in a jar too.

    Cold things: yogurt, acai bowls, chia pudding, ice cream, in smoothies...

    Baked Goods: cakes, cupcakes, cookies, breads, brownies, cinnamon rolls… you can use Wanna Date? as a sweetener or oil substitute in any recipe. You can even use date spread instead of frosting!

    Combine it with other spreads: Wanna Date? is really good with peanut butter, almond butter, jam, jelly, honey…and on a bagel with cream cheese!

    Get creative: Spread it on s’mores, shake it in a salad, sizzle it on bacon, set it up on your Thanksgiving table alongside the cranberry sauce and gravy, enjoy it on a nice charcuterie board... check out our Instagram for more awesome ideas!   

    Final thoughts: The best way to eat Wanna Date? is straight from the jar with a spoon. Just saying. 

    Do I need to refrigerate "Wanna Date?"

    YES. Date spread is shelf stable and you must refrigerate it after opening. Fact: It tastes better cold! Date Dough does not require refrigeration. 

    When will my product expire?

    There is a recommended "Best By" date printed on the top or bottom of every jar of date spread. You must keep the spreads refrigerated after opening and consume it within 60 days. Date Dough does not require refrigeration and also has a best-by date printed on the packaging. 

    The color of my date spread looks darker than I expected, why?

    Because we refuse to put fake color additives or dyes inside! Naturally, no date looks exactly the same. Some dates are bigger, some are smaller, some are super light brown, and some are on the darker side...the natural variance in the color of dates causes a natural variance in the color of our date spreads! One thing's for sure though, your Wanna Date? will ALWAYS taste INSANE. 

    I changed my mind, can I return or exchange my order?

    Unfortunately we cannot accept returns or exchanges once an order has been placed. So choose your date spreads wisely! 

    Do you ship to Canada?

    We do! Please keep in mind that international shipping is super expensive and we hope to be able to offer lower rates in the future. *Free shipping promotions are not valid on International shipments*
