    My daughter is six, and absolutely a junkie for these things!! Lol. We used to buy a ton of canned oranges. But she’s old enough now to grab and peel these, so this is something that’s always in our house. I’m a big fan too. Perfect little grab and go snacks. And I definitely prefer Halos to any of the other varieties, you really can tell a difference.

    Annnnd…. now I’m hungry. ๐Ÿ™‚

  83. 01/24/2017 / 7:07 pm

    That chicken dish sounds delicious. The only problem I can see with this is that we’ll probably eat the Halos before I actually get a chance to make anything with them.

  84. 01/24/2017 / 6:51 pm

    That sounds delicious! I love citrus with chicken, and I since we keep Halos in the house whenever they’re in season, I’ve already got them on hand.
