The creme de la creme of the date world, Medjools are richer, sweeter, and softer than most other types, and that goes for these dried organically-grown dates, too.
Indeed, the so-called "king of dates" were so revered in ancient Morocco that the fruit was reserved only for royalty, and they are still considered the crown jewel today. Because they are on the softer side, Medjools are most often sold dried rather than fresh - and this is a good thing, since otherwise you wouldn't be able to nibble on them throughout the year. That's also why Medjools are usually dried with the pit intact, and you can easily pry those out with your fingers or a paring knife.
Delectable on their own, of course, and even as an after-dinner treat with nuts and dark chocolate, these dried dates can also be diced and used in baking cookies and cakes, coating them with flour for easier chopping and to keep the pieces from clumping. Dried dates are also touted as natural sweeteners for smoothies and shakes - that is, if you can keep from eating them out of hand, one mouthwatering morsel at a time.
