Mandarins -- seedless, juicy, and sweet.
Even the labels stuck to their skin are cute. One says, Cuties: Seedless! Another says: Root for the Cute!
I'm rooting, all right, cutie juice running down my chin.
I pop a wedge in and wonder, What's the difference between a Mandarin and a Clementine? None as far as size and taste are concerned. At least none according to my palate.
Happily, I can look them up, so I do.
What I discover confirms what I taste: there are two varities -- Clementine mandarins and Murcott mandarins.
One of the websites says:
Cuties® are great because…
- Excellent quality
- Easy to peel (zipper skin)
- Super Sweet
- Excellent source of Vitamin C
- Naturally fat, cholesterol, sodium and trans fat free. Check out our nutrition label.

Hopeless Cutie fan: that's me!
Now if I can just figure out how to word-process and zip the skin at the same time . . . .
