We discovered the culinary possibilities and nutritional benefits of dates and date syrup when our family relocated from the US to the Middle East for a season. The caramel-like fruit was everywhere from coffee shops, cafes, health clubs, hotels and even boutiques. We started using date syrup in our household and it was a great source of magnesium, potassium and other minerals for our family. We f

ell in love with the unique date varieties and one-of-a kind date syrup prolific in the Middle East. However, it was impossible to find these high-quality, distinctive dates the US, so we did what anyone else would do - deep dive into the date business! We launched Date Lady in 2012 to introduce these exciting new products to the American specialty food market.

These frozen yogurt fruit cups are quick, rich in fiber (and most importantly) oh-so-delicious.

Plus, we know it's only May, but at least here at the Date Lady HQ in Missouri, it's starting to feel more like the Amazon jungle in high summer with every passing day.

So beat the heat with this frozen snack. Comment FROYO for the recipe! 😊

Our Story

Back in 2005, Ryan and Colleen Sundlie were both busy with their careers and living in close proximity to Colleen’s advertising agency and the university where Ryan taught. Colleen had become pregnant, and in the summer gave birth to their first child, Henry. During the same time frame, Ryan was offered a job teaching at the United Arab Emirates University in Al Ain, UAE. Colleen wanting to devote herself full time to the baby, and, always ready for an adventure, was eager to embark on this journey. Upon arrival to their new home in the desert, Colleen explored with 2-month old Henry strapped in a sling. As a foodie, the markets and local cafes fascinated her. Schwarma, hummus, and baba ganoush were plentiful, but one item stood out everywhere she went: dates. This local gem, largely unknown in the U.S., was everywhere. Hospitality from locals always included dates and Arabic coffee. Hotels, shops and restaurants adorned their entryways with beautiful Arabic pottery overflowing with this caramel-like fruit. Something about the dates in this distant land was different than the dried, diced, boxed and pretty much undesirable dates she was familiar with back in the States. There were date boutiques selling high-end varieties of datesβ€”over 100 different cultivarsβ€”along with a beautiful selection of related products including sparkling date drinks and dates stuffed with exotic candied fruits and nuts.

Then one day while shopping in a market close to her house, Colleen picked up an item that would someday change her and Ryan’s life significantly. The ladies in the market gathered around her as they often did, pinching little Henry’s cheeks, smiling with their eyes peeking out from their abayas, and told her excitedly about the jar of pure date syrup she was holding in her hands. It was said to heal infirmities, provide nutrition, and make amazing pastries. It was both a survival food of their Bedouin ancestors and a feasting dessert of ancient kings. She had a feeling right then that this might be her favorite item yet, luxurious honey-like nectar derived from the fruit of the date palm. In this part of the world (where over 95% of dates are grown), date syrup overflows. Colleen brought some home to try, thinking she would use it as she did honey, to replace sugar in their household, which she had been doing for quite some time. They baked with it, poured it over oatmeal and cereal, and used it anywhere they would normally use a sweetener. They learned quickly that it was delightful directly on pancakes and waffles. The texture was in fact so luxurious, and the taste so complex and lovely, that they soon found themselves eating it straight off the spoon. They developed recipes with it and shared it with their family and friends.

After a couple years of bringing home suitcase of dates and date syrup, they realized the only way they could ever have a running supply would be to create a company selling the products. They also realized others were going love them as much as they did. The Sundlies moved back to the States in 2008. After some test marketing and a lot of determination, Date Lady was established in May 2012. Now 4 kids and several years later, Ryan and Colleen both run Date Lady and delight in offering people everywhere luxurious date products like they’ve never tasted before. In addition to a lesser-known organic date variety, pure date syrup, and date sugar, Date Lady also offers coconut caramel sauce, chocolate spread and BBQ sauce, all sweetened naturally and exclusively with dates.

You can count on every product the Date Lady brings to your table to be made with minimal ingredients and no processed sugar. All Date Lady’s products are organic, non-gmo, gluten free, kosher and paleo.
