Wonderful Halos Mandarins - Perfect fruit for the new year! #HalosFun @HalosFun #Giveaway #ad

Bursting with pure goodness, Wonderful® Halos® are sweet, seedless and easy to peel. They are perfect to little hands or big hands!   The are a premium, natural fruit your whole family will love.Halos are in season November through May.

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. When my daughter is playing soccer these are a must.  She plays year round, so it seems like we are always buying Halos to take for after the games.   They are perfect snack for the kids after or before a game.  The girls love the sweetness and as parents we love them too!   Additionally, Wonderful Halos mandarins are a healthy alternative, delivering vitamin C in about 50 calories.
With the New Year under way, Halos truly are the perfect snack solution.  They are 100% California-born and raised, and are Non-GMO Project verified.   They are perfectly portable and oh so delicious!

This month the great folks from Halos sent me a Gift Box for January that includes fun family activity, craft and recipe idea cards, a Halos branded container, magnet and free Halos coupons.   Of course we had to try out some of the fun crafts.  Check out our Halo snowman!
