    These were absolutely delicious!! I could not believe it but I could barely taste any date at all and I would not have noticed the taste if I didn’t look for it. I went for the extra dark cocoa powder and coated them in chocolate and they were the most scrumptious healthy food I’ve ever eaten!!! I just can’t get over how good they are. Yum!!!
