Celebrate National Grapefruit Month with Wonderful Sweet Scarletts + Giveaway!

February is a month to celebrate many special times. One that may be overlooked (but shouldn’t be) is that February is National Grapefruit Month. With plenty of ways to prepare and eat grapefruit, let’s look at how grapefruit can become sweeter, because of the wonderful winter weather in Texas. Really, it matters!

Now, I know grapefruit is a bit sour for many, which is why I’m happy to partner with the people who brought you Wonderful Pistachios, POM Wonderful and Wonderful Halos. Why? Because their latest introduction is that of Wonderful Sweet Scarletts – a new brand of Texas Red Grapefruits, which was launched nationwide last year and is bound to change the way you think about grapefruits!

Wonderful Sweet Scarletts Texas Red Grapefruits are so sweet, you won’t even need to add sugar! Why? Because the Texas climate yields the sweetest premium red grapefruits around. It is the hot sunny days and cool evenings which give away to the sweetest red grapefruits available.Fact: Not only is this grapefruit sweet, but half a grapefruit is only 60 calories and provides 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C. Now, that’s sweet!

    I love grapefruit in salads. It is my favorite way to eat it. I make a spinach salad with chicken, feta cheese and grapefruit that is really good. I can’t wait to try the Sweet Scarletts Red Grapefruits.

    I’ve seen these in a couple of stores in my area. I really want to try them. These grapefruit would be good for making smoothies.
