Cuties California Clementines and Mandarins Wants You To Show Off Your Cuties!

There aren’t many fruits I can pull out at a play date and be relatively sure everyone there will eat them. The Cuties are one of those fruits. We wait all year long for them, and when they start showing up in stores, I buy them by the flat. They go into lunches and snacks, and the wee ones are thrilled that they can peel them and eat them – without worrying about seeds – all on their own.

In fact, this year… it was Cuties that were the traditional citrus in our stocking. I love having this treat on hand that satisfies that craving for something sweet. Forget junk food. There’s no need, and the wee ones never fight me when I offer them a Cutie for dessert. They arrived nationwide in December and are still available now. The Cuties are small, so they fit the tiny hands of the cutest kids. They’re the perfect size for snacking, with no worries about dried out left behind pieces of orange.

    The last 3 bags of CUTIES California mandarins I have purchased from my local ALDI Market look great unfortunately SOUR. This has been over a time frame of about 6 weeks. Is the season over or should I stick with Naval Oranges. I’m diappointed in the taste.
    The last bar code number on a bag i just purchased yesterday 54 107 22101.
