Joolies brings delicious, organic medjool dates from their palms to yours as a delicious, healthy on-the-go option for snackers everywhere. Medjool dates, also known as the king of dates, are a great source of energy, have a low glycemic index, and are full of beneficial nutrients. To ensure the best possible quality, Joolies dates are handpicked from the tree and carefully packed at peak ripeness.
A joint partnership between the Kohl Family Farm and Venice Brands, Joolies is on a mission to share the nutritious goodness of organic medjool dates grown in the sunny Coachella Valley of Southern California.

Eat a few dates split in the middle and stuffed with peanut butter and topped with shredded coconut, and you’ll see why you need to load up on a 2-pack of Joolies ($24). Dates are a great source of disease-fighting antioxidants and fiber. Find more vegan snacks on Amazon.
Because you’re supposed to avoid processed foods on the Paleo diet (ahem, our ancestors did not have them!), you’ll want to choose snacks that are as close to their whole food state as possible. You also want to avoid additives and “non-natural” sugars. Here are a few Paleo snacks we couldn’t live without.
Bored of honey and agave? Shake things up by sweetening your oatmeal with date syrup instead. “Date syrup is made from the superfruit dates, so it’s naturally rich in stress-relieving magnesium and potassium,” says Beckerman, who’s also the author of The Better Period Food Solution and host of Well+Good’s You Versus Food. “There are a lot of fun brands to try, but I’ve been choosing Joolies’s organic medjool date syrup because they don’t add any sweeteners or concentrates to their final product, so it’s good in my book.”
