Win Satsumas for Sharing

By Jennifer Cheng, December 5, 2011  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Jennifer Cheng
We love sharing the flavor of satsumas! In some cultures, it’s traditional to give citrus to friends and relatives for good wishes and we couldn’t agree more — satsumas make a perfect gift for the holiday season. Bring a bright spot of citrusy sunshine to your holiday season with a box of satsumas and gift one to a friend — on us! Leave a comment below by December 13th telling us who you would share satsumas with and why. We’ll pick 10 winners at random to receive a 13-pound box of satsumas along with another box for the giftee of their choice. A variety of mandarin orange and a cousin to the clementine, satsumas are super sweet, juicy, seedless and easy to peel. They’re only available for a short time (from October to December) so you’ve got to enjoy their sweetness while you can. You can use them in recipes, keep them on hand for easy snacks and as edible table décor…what’s not to love? Find more ways to enjoy satsumas here. So go on, share some sweetness — give someone (and yourself!) the gift of satsumas this season. Leave a comment by December 13th to tell us who would you like to share satsumas with and why for a chance to win! Remember to keep your eye out for an email message on December 14th — you’ll need to respond by Dec 15th in order for us to collect addresses and ship the satsumas for the holidays. We can send the gift box of satsumas to the winner for hand delivery to their giftee or we can ship to another US address. Enjoy! The fine print: No purchase necessary. Promotion ends December 13, 2011. Must be a legal resident of the US, age 18 or older to participate. (Sorry, no shipping on these satsumas to Canada.) Taxes on prize, if applicable, are the responsibility of the winner. Employees of Whole Foods Market, Inc., are not eligible. Void where prohibited.

I would like to share with my son that lives away from home and has asthma, I know they are good for the cold and flu season, they are sweet and easy to remove skin. You could eat and carry them anywhere, even a few in your purse.

I would share them with my 80-year-old friend who just lost her husband this fall. She is older than I, but this wonderful woman can work circles around me.

I would share these with my sister. She lives in Idaho and the produce this time of year is shipped from far away, leaving the nutrient content a bit lack-luster. Fresh citrus is a splurge this time of year, and as her and her family fight winter cold and flu season these would help keep them healthy <3

We were just introduced to Satsumas at Thanksgiving. My mother-in-laws neighbor has a Satsuma tree that we were able to savor daily. I would share them with my dad, who since as early as I can remember, has loved all kinds of citrus and would love this special treat!

I would share them with my co-workers. Our theatre company staff is small, but might, and we are all trying to dodge sickness this season, so we can keep doing what we love!

I would share them with my son's 2nd grade class for their Holiday party (better than cookies/cupcakes! I'm sure the other parents would rather the kids have a healthy "sweet treat".

I would share these with my friend's son who is in 4th grade, whom I drive to and from school and watch for a few hours after school. We are trying to get him to make better food choices and he LOVES the Satsumas I purchased at WF on Friday when they were on sale. As a matter of fact, he ate two Satsumas after school today!! I would also share these with my parents who live 3-1/2 hours from me. They cook for us every Thanksgiving and Christmas and love citrus and I really think they would appreciate these.

I would very much want to give the satsuma's to a dear friend of mine who is going through a really rough time right now w/her family & the loss of her mom. She herself is not well & neither are her children. Her & her husband are having financial problems & she always positive no matter how she is doing. We became friends this year & met @ our doctors office where we go weekly for treatments. We have become a support for each other & to 2 other friends that we've made. But person in particular needs some sunshine & sweetness to help through this time of year & what she is going through. She thanks me everyday for being the first person to be such a great friend & caring. She has a big heart & soul & I know she will love the satsuma's. I hope I win these for her. Thank-you!!!!
