What's a CARA CARA you ask?

Have you tried the Cara Cara Naval Oranges available at most supermarkets now? They are sold January through April and are an amazing vitamin packed treat! The beautiful pink color interior will remind you of a grapefruit but the flavor is sweeter with a slight cranberry-like hint, and no seeds.

I recently purchased an 8 pound bag at Costco for $7.79 which is an awesome deal! Most supermarkets that I have seen are selling them around $5.00 for a 3 pound bag. My family really loves these and this large bag actually disappears quite quickly, mostly just for snacks but they are also great for adding cut up into salads or squeeze the juice into a vinaigrette dressing.

Cara Cara Oranges are a special variety of juicy, low acid, seedless navels, an excellent source of vitamin C, A and fiber; a good source of folate and potassium, and a natural source of Lycopene, the disease-fighting antioxidant. This time of year with all the colds and flu going around why not pick up a natural immune booster treat?

You can see the Sunkist Cara Cara Oranges Nutrition Label for more nutritional details on this variety at the Sunkist Website
