Why aren't dates the only ingredient?
Trust us, we tried really hard to formulate Wanna Date? using only dates and spices. Turns out that, as with most fresh fruit butters & spreads, you have to lower the pH of the product using an ingredient like lemon juice or citric acid. This prevents harmful bacteria from growing (getting salmonella wouldn't be fun) and helps to make the product shelf-stable.
When we added that tiny bit of citric acid, the taste of our dates were altered. Luckily, because dates are naturally sweet, we only needed to include 2 grams of organic cane sugar in each serving to get that mind-blowing taste back.
Nowadays we see so many companies just loading sugar into their products. Some try to hide it with misleading labels and packaging. When it comes to Wanna Date?, we believe that knowledge is power & everyone should know exactly what they are putting into their bodies. We're proud of the fact that we only have 2 grams of organic cane sugar in each serving! That's A-OK in our book. You can enjoy Wanna Date? and still be your healthy, amazing, beautiful self.
Is all of that fruit sugar okay to eat?
Yes! Naturally occurring fruit sugars are not the same as refined sugars. You should try to limit your consumption of refined sugars; too much can negatively impact your health. Fruits, on the other hand, contain natural sugars and you should never consider eating less fruit because of that. If anything you might benefit from incorporating more fruit into your diet. Especially dates - they're full of beneficial vitamins, minerals, fiber, and more. Processed table sugars are no good. Those guys are refined, empty, and stripped of all nutrients.
Is "Wanna Date?" vegan?
Does it contain nuts?
Nope! No nuts. It's made in a nut free facility too!
How about dairy?
Nope! No dairy here.
Then how does it taste so good?!
Because of DATES! Dates taste great- sweet & creamy like caramel.
What foods go well with "Wanna Date?"
Great question! Here's what we recommend putting Wanna Date? on...
Apples, bananas, strawberries, bread, biscuits, muffins, toast, oatmeal, waffles, pancakes, and yogurt. It's really good when combined with peanut butter or other nut butters, blended in smoothies, spread on pretzels, crackers, cookies, cupcakes, and brownies (you can bake it into your recipe or spread it on top like frosting). For lunch we'll eat it in a sandwich (DB&J = Date Butter & Jelly). Then at night we'll plop a spoonful on top of some ice cream. If we happen to be gathered around a campfire singing songs, we'll put it inside our s'mores. But the #1 way we consume Wanna Date? is by itself, with a spoon, straight outta the jar.
