I'm sorry, but that picture of dates make them look like nutty turds. I love grapes, but I don't think it would have mattered what they were going against...I probably would have voted for gooseberries over those things. :-P

Ew, those grapes look kinda funky. I'm used to purple or green grapes. ;-)


Grapes still take this one hands down. I prefer green grapes over purple, but both are still great. I don't think I've ever eaten those weird looking fruits known as dates. Anyone want to enlighten me what they taste like?

im sure you probably figured id show up with an explaination for dates...so here it is :-)

dates are the fruit with the highest sugar content (to my knowledge) they generally about the size of your thumb and have a single pit in the middle. very chewy, very sweet...kind of a brown sugary taste. VERY sweet. they also make you poop a lot. they are good, but you cant eat very many without feeling sick.

gotta go with grapes. i love grapes :-b
