Who Grows Clementines?
These clementines are grown by Cuties, a family-owned and operated company that strives to source and distribute the finest clementine oranges across the country. Parents appreciate that Cuties Clementines are non-GMO certified, meaning that they're naturally grown and a pure snack to give children.
Who Loves Clementines?
Anyone who loves naturally sweet and juicy fruits can enjoy clementines. Clementines are less bitter than most full-sized oranges and peel more easily, making them especially popular with children. They're just as big of a hit with adults and are sized for enjoying a couple at a time for a more satisfying and vitamin-rich snack.
How Healthy Are Clementines?
Clementines are a citrus fruit. Like other citrus fruits, they're high in vitamin C. In fact, each clementine provides a high percentage of the daily requirement for vitamin C. They're also low in calories and carbs and are a good source of fiber and potassium. Instead of reaching for a candy bar, grabbing a couple of Cuties can satisfy the sweet tooth, satiate hunger and make a nutritious snack that's fun to eat.
Various Ways to Enjoy Clementines
There are other ways to enjoy clementines rather than just peeling and eating them. They can be juiced to extract a dense array of nutrients in a drinkable form. Pull apart each segment and mix with other fresh fruits, like pineapples, bananas and mangoes for a sweet and vitamin-packed tropical fruit salad. Dip segments into yogurt for a hearty, calcium-rich snack option. For dessert, coat clementine segments in melted chocolate or caramel sauce and cool them in the refrigerator to set. Each piece will taste decadent while still maintaining the fruit's natural nutrient potency.
