Where do you buy your dried dates? I have a heck of a time finding whole ones. I want to try some bacon wrapped dates. They sound yummy:)

    I get mine at Costco or Target.

    I have a date problem! Seriously, it's sooo hard for me to eat just one...or two...or three...

    never had a problem getting dates, is there some special variety that is paleo? Dried dates are always available with the other dried fruit at all our local supermarkets.

    I have a serious date problem also!

    There are a ton of recipes in Pinterest for bacon wrapped dates. Our stores only have chopped dates that are covered in sugar. Weird? I bought them for a recipe once. I didn't know they weren't the right kind. I will
    Let you guys know how they turn out when I make them. I have yet to decide which recipe to use. Some have cheese and nuts added in. It would be good if you do cheese. Dairy doesn't agree with me in any form except for cheese in very small amounts. Cheese is probably out for me.

    Not really. Although dates ARE a fruit, they are very high in sugars - especially when they are dried. Personally, I stick with low-sugar fruits like berries, and avoid sugar bombs.
