COVID-19 cannot prevent new (and unique) businesses from settling in Mississauga.
Those who enjoy chocolate, dates and chocolate coated dates might be delighted to learn that Palm Bites, a company specializing in gourmet dark chocolate coated dates (which are also filled and coated with nuts) has just opened a brick and mortar store in Mississauga.
“We are opening the very first chocolate coated date store in Canada,” a Palm Bites spokesperson said in an email to insauga.com.
“We are a small, family-owned business that went into the market during COVID and found success in this healthy and delicious treat. Since then we have decided to build our own commercial kitchen and retail space.
The store celebrated its grand opening on August 15th.
The company claims that its Palm Bites are vegan, gluten-free, halal, and made with kosher ingredients. As for variety, the boxes – which typically cost between $ 30 and $ 45 – come in peanut, pistachio, almond, hazelnut, and mixed varieties.
Palm Bites also offers Revive Superfood smoothies, Hale coffee, and other local produce.
Operators also say there is a corner in the store called “The Last Minute Gift Shop” that offers last minute gifts created by local brands and creatives that can be gifted with a box of Palm Bites.
The brand also sells products on its official website.
