It's a Food Blogga Give-Away for Clementines from Spain!

clementines bowl blue mat

Nothing brightens a gray winter day as deliciously as citrus does, especially clementines from Spain. The smallest variety of mandarins, clementines are exceptionally sweet and juicy. Since they're both easy to peel and seedless, they're ideal snacks for kids and for adults on-the-go.

So if you're weary of winter and haven't gotten your citrus fix yet, I've got some good news. Clementines from Spain is offering 5 lucky Food Blogga readers the chance to receive a 5 pound box of clementines from Spain. Here's what you have to do to win:

Just tell me why you'd like to win the clementines from Spain by the end of the day, Tuesday, January 27, 2009.
That's it.


With the help of random.org, 5 winners will be randomly selected and announced in a future post, so please check back. My apologies to my international readers, but winners are limited to U.S. residents. Winners will need to provide their real names and mailing addresses. Don't have a blog? Just leave an active email address where you can be reached. Good luck, everybody!

Mmmmm we love Clementines. I hope I win. Thanks for the chance. :-)

Betty said...

Clementines are my absolute favorite fruit! And the vitamin C really couldn't hurt in the winter. Thanks for doing this!

AllisonWonderland said...

I would love to win clementines ,mainly cause I've never had them before!

claire said...

We adore these wonderful little fruits. So refreshing, so portable one can easily grab 1 or 2 or...greed is the only problem. My son set out for school with 4 of them in his pockets the other day. And adding the words "prize" and "free" would be about the only way to improve them.

Paul said...

They're one of my favorite snacks, so I'd adore to have a box to munch on.

ttfn300 said...

i bet they would be so much more flavorfull than my first batch! i'm thinking a cake, or pudding? peeling back the outer layer of flesh to reveal the sweetened innards, this is an enticing contest :)

Torina said...

I have never tried Clementines! Neither have my kids. I would love to win them and have a fabulous fruit fest with the kids.

haleysuzanne said...

Ooh....I'd like to get them to make clementine cupcakes and also my sage and clementine chicken! Yummm

Vicki said...

I'd love to win them because they look delicious :)

Kristen said...

Clementines are amazing. I first had them in 1994 in, of all places, Moscow. I was living there at the time and they grow in the former Soviet republics in the Cacusus region. People would truck them up and sell them on the streets. I ate them by the kilo. So yummy! Considering the dearth of fresh produce in a Moscow winter at the time, I'm sure they saved me from scurvy! I was thrilled that by the time I moved back to the US they had become popular here. kmharkness [at] gmail [dot] com

Bev said...

Just bought the perfect bowl to display those beauties! I'd love to have a juicy snack and something to open up possibilities for recipes. Reach me at

Anna said...

I love love love clementines. On one particular occasion we had movie night and while everyone was munching on popcorn, I polished off an entire bag of these sweet little cuties. Never tried the spanish ones, but I'm sure they're just as delicious!

Vij said...

Being a health freak, the first fruit I would reach for a munch is a Clementine. I just adore these tiniest mandarins for its sweet citrus scent.I would even use its skin in powdered form as a face pack. Since I use the entire fruit, I deserve to win the clementines from Spain :-)

Passionate About Baking said...

Of course I'd love to have them Susan...never had clementines, & all the way from Spain. But als, no US address...*SIGH*... will my sis's address in Hou do?

cdziuba said...

Oh what a marvelous giveaway, my family and I would love to win.

LeslieVeg said...

Oh I love little Clemmies! These are so sweet and EaSy to peel! I'm a vegetarian and LOVE my fruits and veggies, but these cutties are one of my favorites!

Thanks!

Katie said...

I'm from Florida, but now live in Michigan, and one of the things I miss most is great citrus. I'm curious how the Spanish clementines compare to the ones that I'm used to. I would love to try them!

Matt & Heidi said...

There's nothing like an in season clementine! I love the flavor, and I love how easy they are to peel. Thanks for the chance to win!

mbskpj0123 said...

I think the more appropriate question is who wouldn't want to win these! Clementines are a citrus all in the family will eat. So easy to peel and munch, it's often turned to as a winter snack for my youngsters before the granola bars. It's great as a dinner, breakfast or lunch add-on, also! Pick me, pick me, pick me (said with hand raised high and waving away!) ;)

Carolyn G said...

There is nothing like a sweet clementine. They are the best. I would love these!

Who would say no to Clementines from Spain!

Kara said...

Only one reason why? Clementines in general, and citrus in the winter... both make me drool. We just finished off a Costco-sized flat of oranges so these Clementines would be just in time!

Maryann said...

I would love to win the clementines from Spain because then, when someone asks me what's new I can say "Well, I just won some clementines from Spain". And they would be all like, "That's cool!" LOL :)

Marie H said...

I would love to win some clementines. They can be expensive though at the grocery store. I don't know if the ones I bought recently were from Spain.

I enjoy your blog!

Alice said...

It has been snowing or icy or grey for over a month - I NEED some sunshine - clementines will do it! Thanks for the contest.

Deborah said...

I have been eating clementines like candy lately. I think I've eaten 2 boxes practically by myself! And I just ran out!

maisha said...

I would love the 5 pound supply of clementines in order to create a version of the clementine cake.

Thanks, and I can be reached at maishaheatley(at)gmail(dot)com.

We are fruit lovers and my husband especially loves oranges, so this would be a great prize to win. Thanks!

Fresh fruit, added vitamin C, and having it in the middle of winter! It doesn't get much better than that! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

clementine sticky buns and spicy chocolate and clementine biscotti. Ummmm ....

techyone said...

Delicious. This would be so wonderful to receive fresh instead of getting from the store where they've sat a while.

Sarah said...

I would love to win since I can't afford to buy clementines in the store and they are so super delicious!
Thank you!

divaqueenie said...

These little bits os sunshine will help fight off the scurvy!

ellie said...

My birthday's in a few weeks and these would make a fabulous treat to share with my coworkers. We all complain about the amount of celebratory junk food we're "required" to eat!

Sandy's Place said...

Would luv the clems..they would go great with Batali's orange crocs while I'm reading his new cookbook "Spain", A lCulinaruy road Trip Mario Batali with Gwyneth Paltrow." Xcuse the plug but this is the first cookbook I've "read" from cover to cover.

Rachelle said...

I would love to win a box! I've seen in the blogs, and even at Trader Joe's the other day, but have never had one. I love citrus fruits, and since they're so small the kids would love them!

Familia said...

Citrus captures the warmth and color of Spain so wonderfully! If we had a box of these it would be a wonderful reminder for Papa who is from Spain and a delicious way to continue to share his stories and memories with our two little boys. We try to teach them as much as we can about that sunny culture, but we live in a cold, gray northern climate now, and it seems so far away, especially in winter!

iluvbeingme23 said...

Clementines are absolutely delicious! Clementines from Spain?! I would bet anything that they are even better.

(iluvbeingme23@yahoo.com)

Sarah said...

Clementines are the most perfect food. They are eco-friendly, (no plastic bag needed, deposit rinds in ground to nourish soil.) They travel well in a bag or pocket, not easily squished. They provide a sweet pick me up in the middle of the day. They are nutritiously delicious. They are so cute that just looking at them can make you happy.

we are never full said...

i would love to win these clementines because i am obsessed with spain and all things spanish. i would be super excited to have a box of these! what a great giveaway.

Deborah Dowd said...

These Clementines would be an awesome addition to my Wednesday night tapas. How about if I sing "My Darlin' Clementine?" Or maybe you would want to send them to me to keep me from singing!

jodieak51 said...

I have never had a clementine but Looove citrus fruits. I think it's time I try them.

micaela6955/Michele P. said...

Clementines are delicious! And it has been ages since I have had any. I would love my daughter to be able to try them, it would be a much healthier snack than sugar laden treats. Thanks for the chance to win!

Crazy timing here ... I just came back from our local Clementine Farm with a bag full of juicy delights. Please leave me out of this contest, as I'm lucky enough to have a local supply, but good luck to everyone commenting!

Berek said...

Clementines are a delicious and semi-sinful treat. They are good for me, taste wicked sweet and I can spit the seeds off the back porch so the blue jays can fight over them

SharonAnne said...

I would so love to try these to add a little sunshine up here in Maine. We sure could use it! Thanks for the giveaway...

they remind me of happy times when i would sit in front of the fireplace with my family - practically going through an entire box of clementines throughout the course of the evening :)

Julie said...

Mmm...these are good enough to come out of the shadows of lurkage. Clementines are quite possibly my favorite winter fruit, with each section like a little flavor bursting packet. Thanks for posting this chance to win some tasty citrus! I'm crossing my fingers.

David Hall said...

Ha! Great idea for a prize Susan. How I love anything orange. I'll resist entering simply because I may eat them all at one sitting and regret it in a severe way.

Cheers

Is there even a reason for NOT wanting clementines from Spain? I think not. They are the juicy mothers of sweet bliss.

Anonymous said...

I would love to win this because I first tasted these in Spain while driving to our casa rural, my first time in Spain, and the taste was so explosive, it was almost impossible to drive, we had to pull over, it was so intense. An experience I thought I'd never have a chance to experience again in this life.

Lynda said...

Your picture is making me drool; I'd love some clementines.I also love your blog!

Jeanne said...

Awww, sorry I missed this (not sure they would have shipped to me in London anyway ;-))

2 weeks ago I sent my husband shopping and asked for clementines. He came back with... nectarines. I supposed I should be glad it wasn't aubergines!!

Jenna said...

It's still *cold* here in Iowa, and I sure could use some sunshine (and vitamin c) in Clementine form. :)
