clementines

Good morning!☀️ This is part of my breakfast today thanks to Trader Joe’s: a whole bag of kiwis from (7 total) and a sack of clementines (2 pounds, around 20-25 I think? I lost count!). I’m addicted to these little guys! 🍊💚 The kiwis were super ripe and juicy. Cutting them fancy is not advised 😂 too messy! The bag of organic kiwis cost $2.79 and the clementine sack $3.49. Affordable, healthy, and transportable! I might bring a few clementines with me to the library. Eating citrus in the morning just puts me in the best mood! You should try it ☺️ I hope y'all have a great day! ✌️

WHAT IS A CLEMENTINE YOU ASK

WELL BUCKLE YOUR BOOTSTRAPS AND HOLD ON TO YOUR HANKERCHIEFS BECAUSE BOY DO I HAVE A WHOLE NEW WORLD TO SHOW YOU, A DAZZLING PLACE YOU NEVER KNEW

CLEMENTINES LOOK LIKE THIS

THEY ARE DELICIOUS, ROUGHLY-FIST-SIZED CITRUS FRUITS OF THE SOUTHERN TROPICAL PERSUASION

THESE LIL BEAUTIES ARE ACTUALLY HYBRIDS OF MANDARINS AND SWEET ORANGES, FIRST DISCOVERED BY FRENCH MISSIONARY CLÉMENT RODIER, WHO DECIDED TO SLAM SOME TREES TOGETHER IN THE YARD OF THE ORPHANAGE HE HUNG AROUND AND SEE WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED?

7-14 SWEET, MOSTLY SEEDLESS SEGMENTS HAPPENED, THATS WHAT. THESE THINGS ARE RIDICULOUSLY EASY TO PEEL, AND RELEASE SUCH A HUGE BURST OF AROMATIC OILS THAT MY MOTHER CAN TELL WHEN I’VE BEEN EATING THEM DOWNSTAIRS. IT’S LIKE FREE PERFUME AND DELICIOUS SNACK ALL IN ONE. 

AND OH SHIT, OH SHIT, DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON HOW EASY IT IS TO PEEL THESE THINGS. I RIP THESE THINGS OPEN WITH MY NUBBY LIL THUMBNAIL, AND THEY MAKE MY FINGERS SMELL LIKE HEAVEN.

THESE THINGS ARE GORGEOUSLY GLOSSY AND TASTE SWEETER THAN A BED OF ROSES. YOU CAN AND WILL EAT AN ENTIRE CRATE OF THEM IN A SINGLE SITTING, DON’T EVEN TRY TO MAKE THEM LAST. CLEMENTINES ARE BETTER THAN WILLPOWER. CLEMENTINES ARE BETTER THAN EVERYTHING.
