This trio of spiced date sugars is the ideal sweetener: low-glycemic, vitamin-rich, with a deep caramel flavor, silky texture and mixed with some of our favorite spices. The three varieties are made to complement each other, and they are versatile in both sweet and savory applications. Date sugar made from whole Kentichi dates is a wonderful, health-conscious alternative to other sweeteners and is packed with potassium, magnesium and antioxidants. The spices' warm, zesty and complex flavors complement the natural caramel flavor of the date sugar.
A little more about each sugar:
The spicy notes of Buffalo Ginger marry with the rich caramelized flavor of the date sugar, making it the perfect "swicy" (that's sweet and spicy) addition to a dry rub with star anise and fennel seed. It's a dream whisked into Asian-inspired sauces and equally at home in a spiced gingerbread cookie or banana bread.
Black Lime mixed with date sugar creates an irresistible combination of sweet and sour that at first might remind you of Pixy Stix...but so much better! Try lining the rim of a drink glass with this sugar, use it as a finishing touch for lime zest blondies, or to add sweetness and acidity to salad dressings.
We ground whole pods of Pompona Vanilla into date sugar for a decadent, rich sweetener that makes everything better. Aside from eating it straight from the jar, stir it into plain yogurt, sprinkle it over pancakes or waffles (with strawberries, please!), use it as a finishing touch for an espresso or latte, or add it to baked beans.

We worked with Dr. Sylvie Charles, founder of Just Date, to make these spiced date sugars. Just Date makes healthy, delicious, organic sweeteners from whole Medjool dates. Date sugars are Sylvie's favorite alternative sweeteners because they are healthier in many quantifiable ways that are backed by clinical trials.
Our spiced date sugars are a whole fruit, low-glycemic sugar full of all the nutrients and fiber from the original dates. The dates are super sweet and caramel in flavor, and light in color. They are dried and finely ground to create a delicious, flavorful, off-white sugar. The spices in these sugars are our single origin Buffalo Ginger, Black Lime and Wild Pompona Vanilla.

Ginger Date Sugar - Amazing on just about everything
I've had this on yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, hot beverages, and various dishes, and I'd definitely recommend it. I'm particularly fond of ginger and think it fits in a wide range of things, but will absolutely consider getting the other variants when I run out. The versatility alone makes this a must-buy.
Excellent spices. Very fresh and stellar flavor.
this is such an amazing addition to anything sweet! I put it on my oatmeal in my smoothies and even coffee. It's absolutely fabulous and add texture to baking!
Spiced Date Sugars
Excellent. Every spice I've tried has never disappointed and now i have all my family members using them as well.
Delicious Finishing Sugars
I love all of these. Have been using them to sprinkle on oatmeal, plain yogurt, crepes, toast. Great as a rim on a glass of of sparkling water, especially yummy to enhance mixed drinks.
I have really enjoyed the pompona vanilla date sugar on my morning cereal, and hope to purchase more. I have used the date syrup before, but this has a slightly milder flavor. I also purchased the buffalo ginger, and black lime date sugars, but have not tried these yet. Hopefully, the pompona vanilla will be restocked soon.
Vary unique flavor
I like dates so with the black lime it has a vary unique flavor and I found it great on oatmeal and rice.
The buffalo ginger and date sugar is a wonderful combination. I use it most often when making a fruit bowl for my spouse and sprinkle it generously over the fruit and then add some ginger syrup. He loves it. We have also added it to coffee and it's great. I also use it when making cupcakes and have added it to pineapple and orange jam.
