Is a little alcoholic smell coming from a small box of dried dates I’ve had for a few days a bad sign?

Because of the high sugar content in dates, exposing them to warm temperatures for a long time is not a good idea. The sugars might ferment and produce a slightly alcohol smell. While this likely won’t harm you, it may be a sign to buy a new box.
