I just discovered blood oranges last week while I was shopping at Trader Joe's. I grabbed a bag so I could take one to work each day for a mid-morning snack. I was a little nervous when I cut my first one open and saw how they got their name (the insides are indeed the color of blood).
After smelling them (yes, I needed to make sure they weren't too odd) I decided to give it a try. Delicious! They were a little tangier than your average sweet orange, but still sweet enough. It was a nice break from traditional oranges. These guys are also packed with 110% of your daily vitamin C. You can't beat that!
The only con to these guys...they are a little bit more messy to eat then a traditional orange because of the color.
Oh, and my picky husband won't touch them because of the color. One day!
Here is a website if you want even more information.
What is your favorite healthy snack at work?
