Substitute for Dates?!

I'm not a big fan of dates. Any ideas for substitutes as this seems to be the base of so many raw desserts.

Thanks so much!

    How about dried apricots? Figs are another possibility, though their seeds would change the character of the dish. Sometimes a liquid sweetener (honey, agave, yacon) would suffice if the dates are not a huge part of the recipe.

    If you're making something that doesn't require the chewy, dense texture of dates (like a raw soup), apples work well. I like using a bit of apple as a sweetener in salsas.

    Raisins and figs as suggested would be a good choice.
