I'm usually not this stupid, but I forgot about the pits in the dates and has to spend ages picking them out after processing! It may be helpful to put "pitted dates" in the ingredient list. OOPS. Anyway, these are tasty, especially with the addition of some dessicated coconut and orange blossom water.
