Halo Oranges

Halo is one brand name for mandarin oranges, a type of sweet, seedless citrus fruit that is easy to peel. Mandarins are a better fruit for kids, because you don't have to worry about them choking on seeds, and grown-ups love these oranges as well, due to them being tasty and easy to eat. It's a perfect snack for on the go, to pack in your kids lunches, and even your own lunches.

Halos are also good for the elderly for the same reason it's better for kids, as they are seedless and easy to peel for everybody.

Halos aren't bad for you at all; in fact, I even eat them sometimes, though not everyday. Their catchphrase is "PURE GOODNESS, AS NATURE INTENDED".

Eating Halos means supporting renewable energy, as well: according to the website of its parent company, Wonderful Citrus, which also owns Pistachios, POM, and Sweet Scarletts, "Our Wonderful® Halos® mandarin plant reinforces our commitment to innovation, operational excellence and clean technology."

"Its roof is home to a 2.7 MW solar plant that generates 15% of the power for the plant and gives us the distinction of being the largest commercially owned solar plant in the U.S. When fully installed, the 1.0MW fuel cell will supply an additional 25% of the power. Together, they provide clean energy for both of our California facilities, producing electricity directly from natural gas without combustion," and means "up to 40% of the plant's power comes from 'green energy' generation."

According to halosfun.com the Wonderful Company is also committed to supporting education, as they have "reached more then 55,000 students across the central valley through scholarships, college prep, career pathways, our charter schools, preschools and teacher grants."

If you haven't already, you should definitely try some Halos; they can be purchased at amazonfresh.com, as well as at most grocery stores and warehouses such as your local Walmart, Costco, Kroger, Meijer, Sam's Club, Publix, Target, and Winn-Dixie.
