Growing up in Canada mandarin oranges were a holiday tradition in our family and since this is the time they are in season they became totally synonymous with Christmas. My parents would buy them by the crate load and my brother and I would eat these little orange gems all day long and even made a game of stacking our peels as high as we could. So sweet and delicious, thin skinned and usually seedless, we ate these tiny tasty oranges till our tummies were full and these are the kind of treats parents don’t mind kids filling up on. It might also explain why we almost never got sick during the cold winters we grew up in. We were loading up on so much vitamin C and weren’t even aware of the benefit, but thats certainly something little kids do not think about. I am continuing this tradition in my family by popping a few Cuties into my son’s lunch every day, he loves them as much as I do and usually asks for more as an after school snack. During the holidays I like keeping bowls of Cuties around the house not only for easy access but they’re also so festive, they make great stocking stuffers too. I also like offering them up as snacks at cocktail parties they’re such a refreshing change from the usual salty, fatty snacks and they add a lot of flavor to a martini or glass of sparkling wine. I often find myself munching on them to keep up my energy while taking on mulitple holiday tasks like gift shopping & wrapping, they come in their own packaging and are easy to take on the go. Cuties oranges are such a favorite in our household for so many reasons and we are loving celebrating 100 days of Sunshine during this magical time of year! xoxo ~Zia
