About Sphinx Date Co

Sphinx Date Co., also known as Sphinx Date Ranch, has been an institution in Arizona for over 65 years offering the freshest and best locally-sourced dates and edible gifts, with a traditional family approach. 

The date is said to contain everything a person needs for good health and as the name suggests, it is the mainstay of Sphinx Date Co.’s business. Since the 1950s, they have served a slew of high-class clientele composed mostly of celebrities like Lillian Gish, Joan Kennedy, Lillian Hellman, the Rockefellers, Fay Wray, Barbara Bush, and the Goldwaters. 

In 1957, they even offered classic gifts of fresh, chocolate-covered, and stuffed dates to personalities like President Ike Eisenhower and members of the U.S. Congress. From that moment on, they have catered for a wider range of clientele, sending date gifts all over the country through mail orders and a catalog brochure. 

Since they began operations, Sphinx Date Co. has shifted their product line from Black Sphinx dates, which they started with, to the sweet and tasty locally grown Medjool date, which they are now famous for, and Arizona made wine and craft beers. 

Their product line is composed entirely of local products that are native to the state of Arizona. Despite its management being passed from family to family, Sphinx Date Co has remained committed to its tradition of offering “a gift in good taste since 1951”. 

Today, they honor their rich heritage by introducing a fresh collection of time-honored farm and artisan sourced products to their hand-picked Arizona pantry. This gives you a wide variety of perfect gifts to choose from including gift tins and trays of rich chocolate dipped, hearty stuffed with pecans or walnuts. 

You could also opt for the naturally sweet and sumptuous plain Medjool dates – direct from independent farmers.

Tracy Dempsey Original Bacon-Pecan Brittle


Make every meal a little tastier with farm-fresh baking flours, home-style sauces, handmade sweets, regional specialties, flavorful salsas, spices, and more from the Sphinx Date Co. catalog. 

You can choose from customer favorites like locally made Olive Oil, Sphinx’s own Date Salsas, or Prickly Pear candy – to Pancake Mix made from ancient, heritage grains or local raw honey. Sphinx has sweet and savory specialties for whatever your taste! 

The Pantry category in the Sphinx Date Co. catalog features diverse subsections of the best locally sourced produce and products you can find in Arizona that are must-haves for every pantry. All of this is available on their website.

What’s a meal without a healthy splash of oils and dressings? The oils and dressing subsection of the Sphinx Date Co. catalog displays a top selection of different oils from Queen Creek Olive Mill including their Fig Balsamic Reduction Vinegar, their Parmesan/Romano stuffed olives, their gourmet dipping olive oil among others. 

You can view different types of tea, corn and wheat pinole, coffee, syrups, and old-fashioned sodas in the drinks, coffee, and tea subsection of the catalog. 

Desert Wildflower Pure Honey

There are jams and jellies of different flavors displayed in the honey, jams, and spreads subsection. This subsection also displays honey powder and pure natural honey in more than three unique flavors. Sphinx Dates Co. uses this avenue to showcase their own orange and desert lemon marmalades and their jalapeno, pomegranate, and prickly pear cactus jellies. 

You can browse the pantry section of the Sphinx Date Co. catalog for flour, pasta, and grains. You can also choose from a selection of chickpea flour, polenta, hard red spring wheat artisan bread flour, and other types of flour. If you are looking to cut down the time spent on cooking preparations, you will find the pancake mixes, poppy seed scone mixes, fry bread mixes, and cookie mixes very handy. 

The catalog displays some of the foods native to the Arizona state like tepary beans, garbanzo beans/chickpeas, wheat berries, and they bring the heat with dry tree chiles like the whole dried pulla chiles, dry red chiltepin peppers, del Arbol whole chile, and the chipotle meca whole jalapeno chile. These chiles add some heat and flavor to your salsas.

Medjool Date Salsa Verde

Sphinx Date Co. steps up the heat with their vast array of hot sauces in the salsas and sauces subsection. There are several sauces for you to choose from including banana reaper split hot sauces, blackberry rum smother sauces, prickly pear sauces, smokey habanero hot sauces, ghost pepper sauces, and original BBQ sauces. 

You can make a pick from a selection of salsas including the widely craved salsa trio from Sphinx Date Co’s Originals collection containing their salsa verde, mild salsa, and hot sauce all made with their signature Medjool dates.

Other items in the Sphinx Date Co. Originals collection include Sphinx Date branded bar towels, stickers, tote bags, and t-shirts. You can get a combination of all the originals in a Sphinx Date Anniversary Gift pack to commemorate Sphinx Date Co’s 70th anniversary as a gift shop.

Oriental Trail Mix

Snacks, Sweets, and Candies

Asides from the product line that features cooking ingredients, dips, sauces, and salsas, the Sphinx Date Co. catalog contains snack foods, sweets, and candies for customers with a sweet tooth. The snack foods featured include snack bags by Nutsack, nut and seed whole food bars, artisan popcorns, and mini crackers.

The sweet and candies section showcases the best toffees, chocolates, campfire marshmallows, chocolate-dipped graham crackers. Furthermore, you would find apricot pistachio cardamom brittles, bacon-pecan brittles, goat milk caramels, and prickly pear cactus candy. 

You can also get dessert jelly candies in various citrus flavors like Prickly Pear Cactus, Pomegranate, Orange, and Lemon


Date Gifts

The sales of dates and date gifts have been the center of Sphinx Date Co.’s business since they were founded in 1951. Having served a high-quality clientele earlier on, they have remained committed to producing dates of the finest grades. 

In the catalog, you can find the Black Sphinx dates that Sphinx Date Co. has offered for over 60 years. This hybrid date spontaneously appeared during the 1920s in the early date farming days of Phoenix. 

Smaller, sweeter, with thinner skin than Medjool Dates, Black Sphinx Dates are only found in Arizona, primarily in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix. You can also find the popular and delicious Medjool dates in the catalog. 

The Medjool dates are grown by family farmers in Yuma, Arizona, and are hand-sorted by the Sphinx Date Co. crew for superior quality. They come in different size grades. Fancy grade Medjools are various sizes that may have some loose or broken skins and will be a little drier. 

Jumbo Medjool dates are the largest, sweetest, juiciest, cream of the crop, hand-selected just for you. Large Grade Medjools fall somewhere in between. They are sweet, moist, and very close to the same quality as the Jumbo dates. The last on the list of Medjool dates are the Medjool dates for cooking. 

These premiere Medjool dates are by far and undeniably the best in sweetness, size, texture, and beauty. They come in various sizes and are drier. They are more suitable for chopping, baking, and cooking than the larger moist and sticky grades. 

The Sphinx Dates Co. catalog offers different Medjool date gifts trays ranging from the assorted trays and pure trays to the stuffed and chocolate dates.

Asides from the Black Sphinx dates and the Medjool dates, the Sphinx Date Co. catalog features some other specialty varieties of dates including the Kustawi dates, a fine dessert date for eating out of hand, the Halawi dates, the honey dates, and the Barhee dates. 

Dried Fruits and Nuts 

Bulk Dried Fruits

Sphinx Date Co. has a large assortment of dried fruits and raw and gourmet roasted nuts. These dried fruits include dried figs, apricots, mangoes, nectarines, papaya chunks, Arizona pistachios, trail mixes, apple rings, shredded coconuts, crystallized ginger slices, and more. 

The nuts include pecans, salted and unsalted cashews, almonds, and pepita kernels. You can choose them for snacking, baking, or as part of your favorite recipes. You can also experience a wonderful assortment of dried fruits and dates in the Sphinx Date Co. gift tray. 

Depending on the gift tray, you will find a handful of locally grown Arizona Medjool dates alongside some Coconut Dreams (chopped date pieces rolled with a coconut and topped with a peeled almond). 

The dates are then paired with Dried Turkish Apricots, Calimyrna Figs, Nectarines, Trail Mix, Prunes, and Pears. This makes for the perfect gift to satisfy a whole crowd as there is something for everyone. You can also get dried fruits and nuts gift trays. 

Arizona Wine
