Snack Attack: Be My Clementine

I've always written off the Clementine, scoffed at it if you will while passing it by in the store for larger, more appealing fruit.  I never felt that it was worth the time and effort for such a small offering.

Fortunately, my friend, Das Baldwin recently corrected this grave oversight, when she implored me to give the little guy a chance and forced one upon me while at work. 

I will admit that I was smitten with it's mini pumpkin-like appearance (adorable!).  Then she told me that it's also known as a mandarin orange.  What!?!?!  I have eaten those for years, I just thought they naturally came in cans or little tiny plastic bowls (hmmm).  Add to that the fact that it's easy to peel, no mess, no seeds (usually), comes in bite size pieces and travels well - I was sold!

The Clementine is my new work snack and anytime snack for that matter.
