Just like chocolates, dates are considered to be one of the top items on any celebration menu in the Middle East! Dates are not only popular in the Middle East because they are delicious and sweet, but they also have cultural and religious symbols in most Arab and Muslim cultures.
So dates are deeply embedded in Arab culture, they are a symbol of tradition and hospitality.
Dates come in different qualities and different kinds that you can choose from, and you can find them in most supermarkets in Arab cities. The most common types are Ajwah, Al Khunaizi, Khalasah, Medjool and Rotab. Dates are produced in many Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan.
