Any experience with Calamondin orange?

I was buying some dwarf citrus trees for my patio, and fell in love with this little bush with its pretty varigated leaves. The plant I bought has mature fruit, which really intrigue me. They're like tiny tangerines (about an inch in diameter), with an easy to peel skin and easily separable segments, but they taste more like a kumquat: an sweet, fragrant edible skin and tart interior (apparently they actually are a hybrid of those two fruits). To my mind they're a tiny bit sweeter than kumquats (which I love), but the other people at my BBQ didn't share my enthusiasm.

Anyone else grow them? Eat them? Cook with them?
