The Halawy date's small stature belies its mighty caramel flavor and melting softness. These sultry blondes taste like butter-rich caramel.
The Halawy harvest begins in August and usually sells out in the winter or spring.
The 2014 harvest of firm-pack Halawy dates sold out on October 24, 2014 (the 2014 firm-pack harvest was smaller than usual); the wet-pack Halawys sold out on February 4, 2015. The 2013 harvest (both wet-pack and firm-pack) sold out on February 24, 2014.
- While nearly every variety of fresh, soft date is often compared to caramel, it's Halawy that truly captures that buttery rich flavor and melt-in-your-mouth softness.
- The Halawy is a very moist, soft date with a light texture. Some have described it as boasting the rich flavor of a caramel chew, but rather than challenging your teeth, Halawy melts in your mouth.
- Rich flavor, melting texture, all the indulgence of caramel in a fat free, high fiber, organic package: give Halawy a try.
