Eat like a god!
They’re called “Food for the Gods” for a reason–they taste absolutely heavenly with that soft, buttery texture and semi-sweet taste from the dates and that toasty crunch from the nuts! One bite will make you crave for more, but a second, third, and fourth, will make you feel divine!
