Medjool Dates - Healthy or Not?

I have 4 mejool dates with 8 plain almonds every morning. It's like having a candy bar, and very filling and nutritious, not to mention a tried, true and very reliable laxative. They appear to be very high in sugar and calories, and I'm wondering if I should eat them as often as I do, or every other day. I'm not on a weight loss plan, nor do I need to be, but this is a place I can cut a substantial amount of calories. Any thoughts or information you'd like to share would be appreciated.
