Date Better Reviews

Experience

I loved the packaging and was immediately drawn to the concept - a lot of US-based chocolate and dessert companies have yet to use dates in their recipes and as someone who grew up eating them, I was excited to see something new in the space. The taste was rich and delicious and I love the different flavor profiles offered.

Maybe I’m jaded and used to high prices, but for the complete experience and package of the product, I didn’t think the price was absurdly high for what it is. It is definitely on the higher end and I wouldn’t be able to buy this all the time, but would make a beautiful little gift. I would also love to know more about the founders and their relationship to medjool dates.

Echoing what others have said — yes, they're delicious, and the branding is lovely, but the price point is on another planet!

$7 for two chocolate-covered dates is outrageous. But they are also very very tasty, and the packaging is gorgeous.

I give Date Better major points for such beautiful packaging. But from there I was a bit disappointed! There are only two dates in the box which was $7.50 at the store I bought it. I definitely didn't think there would only be two. They are covered in chocolate and filled with the flavoring. The flavor I had was nice but kind of got lost in the flavor of the date. I would be open to trying another flavor but don't really see myself buying them again given the quantity and price point.

Feedback

Add at least one more date and add more filling maybe or punch up the flavor of the filling.

Cool look & feel

These were good in the way that all dates are. Caramelly, inherently gooey, and a natural match for chocolate and nuts. But were they $3 or more per date good? No. Did I feel absolutely ridiculous when I opened the package to find that it contained just 2 dates? Yes. I appreciate the quirky packaging and recognize that they are plussing up the flavor profiles but I could make something just about as tasty in much higher volumes for a lower price point in my own kitchen. In fact, so many people are nowadays, to the point that I had assumed chocolate-covered dates had jumped the shark long ago.

Give me more dates per package and a lower price point.
