Sumo mandarins

Spotted at Whole Foods Venice---The sumo mandarins have arrived! If you haven't tasted these, please treat yourself to the best substitute to chocolate that has ever been bred. At $2.99/lb they're not cheap, but I spent $50/day on these last year and basically survive solely on them when they're in season. Highest sugar content of any fruit--easy to peel and so delicious. I have been calling WF for weeks in anticipation and now they're here! If you're interested, there is also a great article by David Karp about them....
