Any trip to Palm Springs is not complete without a stop at Hadley’s, home of the best date shake as well as a wacko assortment of dried fruits and vegetables from Calimyra figs to okra chips. It’s a great place to load up on Medjool dates, and an even better place to order a decadent shake. I like mine made with half banana, half date (the banana cuts the sweetness of the dates).
Mr. Foodinista goes cuckoo for cocoa puffs over Hadley’s date cookies, which are deliciously chewy. We always grab a tub of wasabi peas and the cookies, invariably eat too many of each in the hotel room over the weekend, and then gobble up the rest back at home.
