I'd share them with my yoga students!! I've been wanting to do a meditation with them where you become aware of (in this case the satsuma). You become aware of all who were part of its journey to you. During the meditation, the fruit is peeled so that they smell its awesome smell. Then each student is presented with a piece of the fruit to truly enjoy!!

I would share them with my wonderful friends who have been here to support me during the most difficult period of my life. I am separating from my husband and am living alone for the first time ever. But I want to show my friends how grateful I am for lending an ear and taking care of them. I want to return the favor with a symbol of friendship.

If chosen, I would send a box of satsumas to my mum. She has always believed in me and championed my every cause and endeavor. Believing everyone deserves a second chance, she has a house full of "adopted" grandchildren. They could all use fresh, healthy food!

Hello, please enter me in the giveaway! I would share them with my children's teachers as holiday gifts. They do so much for my kids every day and I would love to give them a healthy gift to show my appreciation!

I'd love to send the Satsumas in place of myself to my family this Christmas. I cannot make it home for the holidays for the second year in a row, so I'd love those little orange orbs to be my envoy of glad tidings and love. I'd hope that my parents would share them with their guests at their annual Christmas breakfast and in a small, small way, it would be like me there, but in a more citrusy way. Xx

My children LOVE "little oranges" (their name for mandarins and satsumas). I'd definitely share them with my girls.

Just like lots of moms, I'd send them to my child. He's living in a different city with his first (low-paying) job since graduating from college. I saw his fridge over Thanksgiving and know it's pretty bare. He's figuring out how to live on his own and I worry sometimes that he doesn't eat like he should. I know he's lucky to be working, even part-time, and it's something he needs to figure out how to do himself, but i worry anyway. He could throw a couple in his pocket to eat on his way to work or when he needs a healthy snack.

I'd share them with my family in Tennessee. My mother, sister and brother-in-law live there, and my older brother is coming from Florida and my younger brother is coming from California. I'm in Texas and am not able to visit there for Christmas.

I would share them with my sister's elementary school class because the children need to learn about healthy nutrition and many do not eat fresh fruit due to current cash constraints.

I would love to share these with my mom who doesn't have access to fruit like this where she lives. She also loves oranges, so introducing these to her would be a great gift.

I never had satsumas, so I'd love to try and share with others who haven't either.

I would share these with my two sweet toddlers who have been passing a terrible cold back and forth for weeks! They need the vitamin c! ;)

I would love to share these with my Mom! They look so good and remind me of the oranges she (oops, I mean Santa) would put at the bottom of our Christmas stockings each year. :-)

I would love to share with my children the wonderful taste of Satsumas because they are so delicious and satisfying. Vitamin C is a great preventive for cold and flu season.

I would love to try them myself but they would also be a welcome gift to my 84 year old parents who live in upstate NY where things are usually white this time of year.

My friend has 6 kids & her husband doesn't get many hours at work. I know they would love an abundance of fruit!

I would share satsumas with my family - we all love citrus fruits, and they would be a great gift to bring home with me for the holidays. In addition to tasting delicious, they'll also make the kitchen smell great!

I'd share with my mom! She isn't fortunate to live near a Whole Foods and when she comes to visit me we spend hours shopping. It always makes her sad that she can't buy perishable exotic fruits and veggies. She would never be able to find a satsuma in her neck of the woods and would be over the moon to receive a box!

I would share with my husband. We both love satsumas.

If I won the Satsumas I would share them with the 350 Placer County senior citizens for whom we serve a hot, nutritionally balanced noontime meal. Satsumas are not only nutritionally plentiful but they are a good food for seniors. They are easy to peel (for those with arthritis and/or visual difficulties), seedless, small in size (perfect for a snack or side dish)and a flavor/food which transports many back to their days on the farm. Although Seniors First's Senior Nutrition Program (Meals on Wheels and 9 Congregate Cafes) serves nutritionally balanced meals, we rarely have access to fresh fruits and/or vegetables but when we do we make sure we get them to our precious senior citizens. Afterall, without them, where would we be today?

I would share with my 17 month old nephew because he reminds me that you're never too old to play with your food.

I would share them with my co-workers. They are far better than the normal snacks we have around the office and the Vitamin C will help keep everyone healthy!

I would most definitely share them with my daughter, sister, and niece. My niece used to be allergic to oranges, but now she loves them! My daughter does as well. Our whole family does!

I would share the Satsuma oranges with a wonderful family that we are friends with. They live in Lobelville, TN where there isn't access to lot of good fruit. They have a really big family (11 children) so buying a lot of good quality fruit can also be expensive for them. A few months ago, their 16 year old daughter contracted Guillain Barre syndrome and is paralyzed from the neck down, but she is in therapy and after 5 months has regained movement in one of her arms. I know that a box of Satsuma oranges would really brighten up their December!

Oooh my kids and I love clementines, and we have never had this variety of orange! Would love to try them for us and the holiday crowd, I am sure they would go quick. Grandma would get a delivery too!
