And I am glad to say that every winter I fully took advantage of the endless supply. I would stop letting my mom make me lunches and every day before school I would go pick a grocery bag full of tangelos and tangerines to satisfy me throughout my day. They were my favorite.
Sadly, I don't think I have had a tangelo since we moved from that house. I love oranges- but they are not the same. And I tend to always buy boxes of clementines and never finish them... Nothing has compared. I was too spoiled.
But on Saturday, while I was grocery shopping at Whole Foods, I stumbled upon a section of tangelos. Some even had the stem and leaf on still. They looked exactly like I picked one from my tree.
I only bought 2 thinking they would surely disappoint.
I was so wrong. They were delicious. Nice and sour and juicy just like they used to be.
I have to go back and buy more...
