I hate oranges. I know hate is a strong word, but it’s appropriate in this case. It grosses me out just watching someone else eat an orange. I don’t like the taste. I don’t like the texture.
My aversion goes beyond the actual fruit. I can’t stand orange juice, I don’t eat orange-flavored candy, I think orange glaze on meat is disgusting and I always turn down baked goods that taste anything like an orange. Heck, I don’t even really like the color orange.
Given these things, I have no idea what made me bite into the Cutie I was feeding to Peanut. But I did and…
it. was. HEAVEN!
Despite the appearance, I didn’t think it really tasted anything like an orange. There was no waxy, stringy texture and the flesh was super sweet. The closest thing I could even compare the taste to would be fruit punch. Yes, fruit punch. I know it’s a strange comparison, but that’s what they taste like to me. I love fruit punch so this is most definitely a good thing.
I’m so happy that I’ve discovered these. I love fresh fruit and have been eating even more of it since starting the launch of the new Weight Watchers PointsPlus program. This gives me yet another option to enjoy!
Speaking of Cutie, it doesn’t get much better than this:
Have you ever steered clear of a food because you just knew you wouldn’t like it, only to find out that you did?
