(Win it!) Wonderful Halos Mandarins Pure Goodness


This is my favorite time of year because I love the cooler weather and holiday festivities. It's nice to have extra time to spend with family.  I also love that this is the time of year where Wonderful Halos are easy to find at the grocery stores near us.  We actually eat healthier at this time of year because Halos are our go-to snacks.  They disappear quickly! In today's post, we'll share some fun animal themed recipes from Wonderful Halos and host a giveaway for a trendy Wonderful Halo's prize pack for one lucky winner.


Halos are in season November through May! Sweet, seedless and easy to peel, Halos are easy to pack in lunches, great to share at kid’s activities and sporting events, and make a healthy snack choice any time of the day. Additionally, Wonderful Halos mandarins are a healthy alternative, delivering 45 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C in about 50 calories.

Here are some fun recipes:

Halos mandarin slices on either side of the almond row to create the wings. Place one pistachio towards the top of the almond row to create the head. Enjoy!
