Clementines - they are nature's snack food. They come individually wrapped and are easy to carry around all day for any snack time need.

The Satsumas display at our local Whole Foods put a Cupid arrow through my heart! It was love at first sight (and their heady fragrance) Satsumas are truly exceptional to behold, with their pretty leaves, I'd encourage anyone to buy some and crown them in a pretty bowl as your holiday centerpiece! I LOVE making candied citrus, and I would use the peels to make candied Satsumas for gifts. I'd also use the Satsuma to make Satsuma chutney, Satsuma jam (esp use the juce and zest with my frozen rhubarb for Satsuma-Rhubarb jam- it would be such a pretty color - what special gifts for others and for me!), I'd be almost beside myself to use the Satsuma juice in some Asian recipes, so I'd freeze some of the juice in ice cube trays to have it throughout the year. I'd also freeze small tiny jars of zest, to add that special touch any time of year. I'd love to experiment adding Satsuma juice to creme brulee - just enough to add a lilt and complement the vanilla. I would definitely use them in an appetizer Satsuma Marinated Shrimp, using WF's best Wild Shrimp - the best shrimp I've ever. Then I'd also be working on Fennel-Satsuma Fish Cod - I'd like to use yummy WF Cod, esp if it will go on sale again soon-hint - I'm waiting. I'd like to make a chicken salad with Satsuma and Maui onions.I also think that it would be easier to juggle Satsumas than clementines, so I would try to impress my nieces and nephews by doing a mini-juggling act with a few Satsumas at Christmas in order to get them to think of me as their most cool and favorite auntie. I'm not sure a case will be enough! But I would love every cute little Satsuma, and I'd be posting to FB and sharing with my friends, and I'd enjoy every minute of fun and healthy cooking!!!

Clementines! Ever since I can remember, "Santa" would hide one in the toes of our stockings. They were always more important than anything else in there. To this day, my sisters and I can hardly wait to wake up on Christmas morning to find them.

I love both. The Clementine is easiest to find. I have had the Satsuma but never knew its proper name. Both are rich in flavor and far less acidic than an orange. I can't choose as they are both wonderful. I want them both and will buy both.

That is a very hard choice, I like them both. I believe I would choose Clementines

We love the clementines a bit more as they are the easier snack for my little fellas hands to peel, take many journeys to the out of doors with us and they also are used for a natural household cleaning mixture and scented "water" candles. We do place rinds in many of our baked goods, oriental cooking and more. It was hard to choose which one we use more, as we love them both.

Clementines - hands down winner! My picky eater loves to snack on them. Easy to peel. Easy to toss into a bag for an on the go snack. And when he sees them in the store he begs for me to buy. How can I say no?

Satsumas all the way. Love 'em dipped in dark chocolate and because just saying "satsumas" is awesome.

Are Satsumas naturally seedless or only seedless because the growers keep bees (and other pollinators) away from them?

Satsumas!!!!! At our house its our favorite winter time treat. Love all the citrus fruits but these are our favs. I cook & bake with the rind and we eat the inside so yummy

I love clementine. These are the sweet morsels used in so many recipes from my childhood. I really love most tangerines, oranges, and my all time favorite is temple oranges which are nearly impossible to find these days.

I have always loved clementines, but had never tasted a satsuma until a recent move to Louisiana. A wonderful woman I met here gave me some home-grown satsumas and they are truly the best citrus fruit I have ever tasted! They are sweet, juicy, delicious and easy to peel. I am now a confirmed satsuma lover!

Satsuma because they are like baby Honey Bells. But we do eat a lot of Clementines also.

I love clementines. The intense flavor, the gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, yeast free fruit bread i make for christmas cannot be made without them :) We also make homemade face creams with coconut oil and these little beauties as well as use them for air fresheners through our home. They are just perfect :)

I used to firmly be in the Clementine camp, until my oldest daughter bought some Satsuma oranges on a trip to Louisiana. From the first bite, I was hooked. They are truly more flavorful and delicious. Unfortunately, I cannot eat them as often as I would like due to their short season, but we were able to make homemade baked cranberry orange doughnuts using the juice and zest from Satsumas, and everyone who tried them commented on how much more flavorful the doughnuts were than usual. If you haven't yet tried one, you should. They are the ultimate of oranges!

Satsuma are the best. They are perfect for flavoring dishes, cookies, cakes to even ice creams. I am a pastry chef so citrus can really elevate my cooking. I love candied peels, dipped in dark tempered chocolate. I love adding it or emulsifying it into a sauce with other tropical flavored like pineapple, mango, kiwi or coconut. It helps round out the other flavors in my sauces, frostings, cakes, cookies, pies, compotes, syrups, to even lemonades. The uses of satsuma is endless. Making them my favorite.
