I am still living in honey tangerine land. And I am grateful every day when I see these beauties waiting for me at the store. I seem to be the only one buying them. Today I bought about 60-70. When people ask me about it, I say they're the best food in the whole store!
The funny thing is that if I really suspected they would make a run for them, I'd keep quiet. Ha! You know, life being survival of the fittest and all. ; )
And my husband has discovered that he LOVES them, too, so there is a bit of competition going on there. But it is tough to outeat Fruity Jules on the fruit! Not many want to try. Plus, I am younger and faster! (Line from Fried Green Tomatoes. Fruit tip: Do not fry your tomatoes!)
Honestly, I say a prayer every day for tangerine season to keep on going. I will seriously mourn its' passing. Thank you, Mother Nature and fruit growers, for these amazing orange sugar bombs! They are better than any candy or any soda EVER. And as a lifetime sugaraholic, I would know.
About having juice: I think that eating the whole fruit is optimal. But I also have no big issue with sometimes having some juice. It is a super treat if the fruit is of good quality. This tangerine juice tastes better than any glass of rotten grape juice I mean wine. ; ) It gives you a REAL high with no hangover and no brain poisoning. Lots of giggling and euphoria. Wow. ♥
