I love to swaddle Satsumas and pretend they are my little citrus sumos, but I think my overall champion is still the Clementine. He wields a sweet, tart flesh in a cute orange bundle. Easy to carry, the Clementine makes you the hit of every party when you whip them out of your pockets whenever the subject of winter citrus comes up. Everyone's impressed with your good taste and your commitment to the Boy Scout motto.

The perfect bite size snack for children of any age! The fill the air with their inviting aroma and tantalize the taste buds with their sweet yummy flavor.

I don't believe I've had a Satusuma but it would be hard to beat my favorite "Clementine".....my Mom and Dad live in Auburn, California and I just had Mom send me 10 pounds of them for Thanksgiving. I put them in a big bowl and shared with friends and family coming and going. They were delicious and treasured! They even curemy honey's cold when he came down with one after the busy holiday. Will be trying Satsuma though because I want to try all of these great ideas with citrus so I'm hoping a trip to Whole Foods I can find some in New England! Go Clementine~! :)

This Florida girl votes Satsumas. Also, the zest makes a great addition to homemade bath products like sugar scrubs and foot soaks.

We have only eaten clementines for the past ten years or so. We thought they were some foreign fruit that we wouldn't like. Well, that first box went very quickly and we've been hooked ever since. We have never had Satsumas, but that would be our choice if we're fortunate enough to win. It will be nice to have another citrus fruit to choose at this time of year.

I love Clementines and look forward to the first of the season. Typically I eat 2 / day and like to share with others - so easy to peel & eat. The boxes get recycled and serve as great planters for starting seed for spring flowers etc.

I like the Satsuma “The Puma, because I love strong, bold flavors.

My daughter loves to take fruit to school with her for afternoon snack. These would be perfect for her to enjoy and healthy!

I clamor for Satsuma “The Puma”, because I've never tried those!! I like Clementines, but these sound interesting!

Just had my first Satsuma last week and now I'm ADDICTED! So flavorful and juicy. A little bite of summer.

Satsumas are my favorites for their tangy, zesty taste! I also love how easily they peel! Thanks for the giveaway!

Clementines for the win! I love seeing my niece and husband devour them, matching each other one for one (she's only 6 and gives him a run for his money).

Satsumas all the way. They're more floral and sweet. I always thought clementines were too acidic.

Although Satsumas are easier to peel, the Clementines have always been my favorites.

Definitely satsumas over clementines for me. A bowlful of satsumas with their pretty green leaves are always in my kitchen when they are in season and I just love the way they taste.

Oh, I live in Florida and have never had a Satsuma. I love that it only grows in the US. Will definitely have to try this and share with my toddler grandson!

Satsumas are lovely and tart. I look forward to them every year. They're wonderful as a snack but I especially love them in a spinach salad.

I love clementines and have since I was a kid and would eat multiple at a time. They're perfect to throw in my bag for a snack at work, and still evoke childhood memories- plus they're delicious & surprisingly versatile.

I have never before tried a Satsuma. This is something that I will definitely need to try based on the explanation above---why I love Whole Foods--always learning.
