Cuties: Two 5 lb. Boxes of California Clementies For 2 Winners Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 385 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the two lucky winners ~ Shel & Annemarie!


Either you've seen Cuties in your local grocery store or been lucky enough to taste them. If you've seen them and never tried them, you're seriously missing out. If you've been lucky enough to taste them, aren't they delish?!? If you've never seen them or tasted them, listen up - these babies are delicious! And you'll soon have the opportunity to get your hands on some. Just keep reading.

Cuties are a hybrid fruit that is a cross between a sweet orange and Chinese mandarin. Three things I love - they're small in size, nice and sweet and very easy to peel.

We've been snacking on these for days now and my daughter especially loves their "cute" size. They're great to grab and go. They aren't a pain to peel and forget that sour, bitter taste. They're juicy, sweet and delicious.

Nutritious, too! These pack a nice punch of nutrients - folate, fiber, potassium, calcium and of course, vitamin C. Add these to recipes or eat them on their own. You'll enjoy every last bite.

Two Cuties contain only 80 calories and 0.5 grams of fat. They get better and better every second don't they?!? Each serving provides just about 300% of the daily recommended value of vitamin C!

My husband loves them. I find him eating them constantly. I thoroughly enjoy them and my kids love them. Your family will, too. Give your kids and yourself a healthy snack alternative.


Now for the really great part - TWO lucky winners will receive TWO vouchers for a Free 5-lb box of Cuties!
