Updated review of Shields Date Gardens in INDIO

petradish | Jul 18, 2006 03:30 AM

As promised, last week I checked on what's new at Shields. The store appeared neat and tidy, with a steady stream of customers milling about to escape the aftenoon's scorching heat. The usual Shields' goodies were stocked for sale: different varieties and forms of dates, plus dried figs and apricots, fresh grapefruit, and of course date shakes and ice cream.

Their shakes still strike a delicious balance btwn rustic date and cold, creamy dairy, but perhaps its body is slightly less thick and more frothy than say a couple years ago. A desert gem shines on.
