Bee Sweet Pushes Citrus-Inspired Halloween Treats
FOWLER, CA - Citrus might not be the first produce item that comes to your mind when you’re thinking of spooky fruits and veg—but maybe it should be. This Halloween, Bee Sweet Citrus wants families to celebrate the holiday with delicious, healthy citrus-themed treats!
“While candy is usually the go-to snack for Halloween, we believe that both children and adults will really enjoy Halloween-themed produce snacks if they’re available at parties and celebrations,” said Monique Bienvenue, Bee Sweet’s Director of Communications. “From chocolate dipped mandarin bites to ‘Spook-tacular’ orange fruit cups, there are many ways to incorporate healthy snack alternatives at your Halloween gathering.”
Whereas traditional Halloween treats can leave a bad taste in the mouths of parents looking to fight the epidemic of childhood obesity, citrus varieties are not only healthy, but tasty too.
According to a press release, Bee Sweet Citrus Sweetheart Mandarins have less than 40 calories per serving, and the company’s Navel oranges pack in an exceptionally sweet flavor while maintaining a great source of vitamin C and fiber. Other specialty varieties such as Bee Sweet Citrus Blood Oranges and Cara Caras also combine a unique taste with vitamins and nutrients.
“Serving healthy treats to your guests this Halloween requires little to no effort at all,” continued Bienvenue. "Jack-O-Lantern mandarins are a hit amongst kids and require one mandarin and a sharpie, ‘Spook-tacluar’ fruit cups require one Navel orange and a handful of your favorite fruit segments, and mandarin pumpkins require one peeled mandarin and a small piece of celery.”
