Why are dry fruits like dates sweeter to taste?

Dried dates are sweeter to taste because they are 70% carbohydrates. Because of their low water content, the sugars and flavors in dried fruits are intensified. We recommend eating dates with coffee or dark chocolate. Their bitter taste will provide a better contrast of flavors.
