I like clementines best because they are mild enough to chow down just after rising in the morning, and easy enough to peel still in bed if having a lazy day. Clementines mildness is just my favorite although the peel is a tad harder to peel, they are worth it and last a long time.

Gotta go with the clementine! My 21 month old loves how easy they are to peel and the smile on his face when he eats one is priceless!

I grew up eating Clementines but about 10 years ago was given a bag of Satsuma from Snow's Citrus up in Newcastle. My family and I finished those 10 lbs. in 2 days and wanted more! Every year, I make it a point to go and get 20 lbs.of Satsuma for the family. Satsuma is the BEST!! :-)

My champion is the Satsuma, also known as the Christmas orange. It is so special even just because its season is so fleeting, you must catch them while you can, they are magical. Also, Satsumas can be of variable quality, they are very delicate, so being able to purchase them at Whole Foods takes away any concerns. I like making upside down cakes (like a pineapple upside down, but with Satsuma), and also pie (akin to Shaker, but with Satsuma instead of lemon.) It is imperative to have a quality chef's knife in order to slice the Satsumas paper thin.

Satusmas all the way. They are easier to peel and cleaner to eat in my opinion. Plus they are more exotic tasting!

Definitely clementines! Eating them takes me back to my childhood and watching Huckleberry Hound cartoons as he sang "Oh my darlin' oh my darlin' oh my darlin' Clementine".

Satsumas top out list! We simmer the peels with a little cinnamon on the stove.

I like clementines better. I like to slice them into very thin rounds, and serve in a salad with pomegranate seeds, goat cheese and endive. When sliced thinly, their peel is very tasty and adds a nice bitterness to the salad.

Satsumas, especially the ones that lovingly grow in my yard! They are so small and sweet, like candy.

My girlfriend loves it when I buy her a box of clementines! Probably one Of the biggest "boyfriend point" things I can do.

I love satsumas! They're easy to peel, there's no seeds, and there's barely any white pulpy left behind. They're soooooo juicy and they taste amazing - sort of closer to an orange. They're also just adorably small and with their leaves I think they're even cuter! I seriously wait all year for them to be in season and then run to whole foods and buy a ton of them!!

Satsumas are the best, no question @WholeFoods. Easier to peel, no seeds and they're the perfect winter boost!
