Clementine oranges

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Was in Kroger yesterday. They had a sample tray of these tiny oranges. Good! Tossed a bag in the buggy (they're labeled as "Cuties") and had to tear myself away from the samples. I eat the skin and all. They're not ultra sweet, just good!

They are good!! In our Kroger they are in a wooden crate so there are too many!

You eat the skin, too?!?!

I love Clemetines - they were my late Nana's favorite, and everytime I see the crates of them in the store this time of year, I think of her.

Happy Holidays, Nana, wherever you are!

Just like candy for me. Our Safeway has started carrying them in the regular bins so I don't have to buy a crate.

Are you thinking of another citrus fruit perhaps. There is one -the name escapes me that is the size of a very large grape that you eat skin and all. Clementines usually come in a crate and are about the size of a tangerine

No, clementine oranges. I sometimes eat some of the skin of any orange, after cleaning it, of course. The pulp is nutritious and we love orange zest in most anything, don't we?

I've never tried the skin, doesn't seem like it would taste very good.

Those are definitely clementines she's talking about We've been selling them like crazy at the grocery store i work at. You're right- they're about the size of a tangerine. They sell them in bags and in small little crates and each one has a sticker on it that says "i'm a cutie" ....cracks me up everytime i scan one Ours have been about $6.99 lately for the crate. They're soooo good!

Guess I got a good deal yesterday 4.99 for a crate. I love them too, but sometimes I get a bad batch and then I'm afraid to buy them again. So far this one has been good though.
I can't imagine eating the peels either, but I have a friend who eats strawberries with the leaves and stem so if you like it, go for it !

I'm eating one right now! (without the skin)
