    What is date spread?

    In a word: awesome. In more words: date spread is a similar concept to fig butter, apple butter, or peanut butter, but it's DATE based. We basically mash up dates, water, and our favorite flavors to create sweet, creamy, spreadable dates!

     

    I've never eaten a date, what do they taste like?

    A lot of people say that dates taste like caramel. Other people (me) say that dates taste like gooey little glazed doughnut holes! Either way, dates are one of the most delicious, naturally sweet fruits on the planet and they are a fantastic source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. You gotta try them!!

     

    What kind of dates do you use?

    Deglet Noor Dates

      

    Where can I find more nutritional information?

    You can find full nutrition panels for each date spread on each product's page!

    Yes!

     

    Gluten free?

    Yes!

     

    Nut free?

    Yes! 

     

    Dairy free?

    Yes!

     

    Soy free?

    Yes!

     

    Allergen friendly?

    Yes!

     

    Paleo?

    Yes!

     

    Is there any added sugar?

    Nope! Nada. Zero.

     

    There's an ingredient 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! 

     

    Are you Certified Kosher?

    Yes! 

     

    How many calories per serving? 

    Only 25 calories per tablespoon! For reference, most nut butters average 90-105 calories per tablespoon, cookie butter is a whopping 90 calories for the same amount, then chocolate frosting and hazelnut spread each have around 100 calories per tablespoon.

     

    What foods go well with "Wanna Date?"

    Fruit: sliced apples, bananas, strawberries, mangoes, pears, etc.

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

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

    Baked Goods: cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, banana bread, 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!

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

    Get creative: Spread it on s’mores, dress it on 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!

    Closing thought: The best way to eat Wanna Date? is straight from the jar with a spoon. Just sayin'. 

     

    Do I need to refrigerate "Wanna Date?"

    YES. While unopened "Wanna Date?" is shelf stable, keep it refrigerated after opening. Fact: It tastes better cold! 

     

    When will my jar expire?

    There is a recommended "Best By" date printed on the top or bottom of every jar. Our spreads have a 12 month shelf life!

     

    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. Please choose your date spreads wisely!

     

    Do you ship to Canada?

    Not at the moment...shipping is super expensive! Luckily you can find our products on Vitacost.com and they offer international shipping options!
