Hurry and get your Honeybells!

This is probably another to add to my list of foods to eat before you die. If you haven't tasted a Honeybell orange, you better get moving because they are only available this month. Otherwise you'll have to wait until next year to taste their sweet, juicy little goodness. Really, they are the sweetest, juiciest variety I have ever tasted. A honeybell is a hybrid of tangerine, grapefruit, and clemantine mandarin I believe, I am not an expert, I just eat them. Every year, my sister from Florida, sends us a huge box and we devour them until the citric acid burns become too painful to bear. The box comes complete with a few bibs to catch all the juice, they're that juicy. I don't think you'll find these in any grocery store, you've got to have connections like me, but if you check here or here they might be able to hook you up.

I'm Denise's sister, Debbie. I live in Florida, and I just saw an ad in the paper today for Honeybells. You can get a gift box of 25 for $24.98 - free shipping right now - if you order at gregorysgroves.com or call 1-800-466-3923. They even include the bib. But it's just in January - so act now! I haven't tasted them yet, but apparently I better. I just nominated Denise to buy her own. Cause basically I'm a scrooge. Love you, Bean!

thanks for the info, debbie, go get you some! my mom, who also happens to live in the sunshine state says that if you are buying oranges(not honeybells) at the store, you must not have any friends because everyone has orange trees in their yard(except her)! the zucchini of florida i suppose.
