Asian supermarket mystery purchase: honey dates

Nyleve | Oct 7, 2010 01:06 PM

I am just incapable of not buying something at an Asian supermarket - or any supermarket, for that matter - that I've never seen before, as long as it looks fairly innocuous. So there were these mesh bags full of what was labelled as "honey dates" and they weren't expensive. They looked like they could be some kind of plum or lychee type thing. Must be delicious!


Not at all. White dry flesh inside. Virtually tasteless. Like styrofoam. Maybe they're supposed to be cooked or something. Or maybe these were a bad batch. Whatever. They're not good. Anyone know anything about these things"?
