Best Canned & Jarred Oranges in 2020



DOLE FRUIT BOWLS Mandarin Oranges in 100% Juice Cups, 12 Count Review:


Since I don't get much of a chance to get fresh fruit I really appreciate these little fruit cups, they taste great and my grandkids love them also when they come visit



DOLE Mandarin Oranges, Whole Segments in Light Syrup, 15 Ounce Can Review:


I'm always looking for new stuff to take with me for lunch at work, and Dole Mandarin Oranges are fabulous for so many reasons. They have a clean, "bright" flavor that adds so much to yogurt with chopped walnuts, cold diced chicken with a touch of dressing, or just plain on its own. Not fattening and they keep me away from the cookies and candy always on the table in the break room. Amazon delivery makes it easy to stock up, and the price is just about what I have paid in the supermarket here. I even sent a "goodie basket" using Prime for a friend in another state when they were a bit under the weather. Definitely recommended!



DOLE Mandarin Oranges in 100% Fruit Juice, 23.5 Ounce Jar Review:


THESE ARE DELICIOUS, SEET, AND NUTRITIOUS. THERE IS LITTLE DANGER OF CHOKING EVEN IF YOU DRINK IT STRIGHT FROM THE JAR AS SOME FRUIT LOVERS MIGHT TRY. THIS IS GREAT ALONE OR IN A FRYIT SALAD. I BLEND IT WITH THE PINEAPPLES AND MIXED FRUIT BLENDS TO MAKE SMOOTHIES PUNCES- IT IS BETTER THAN ALMOST ANY OTHER PRODUCT I HAVE EVER BROUGHT TO MY HOME. GETTING IT HAS SAVED US FROM HAING TO CARRY HEAVY BAGS/BOXES AND DOLE WILL REFUND AND REPLACE ANYTHING THEY SELL IF IT IS NOT 100 % SATISFACTORY TO YOU.



DOLE FRUIT BOWLS, Mandarin Oranges in 100% Fruit Juice, 4 Ounce (4 Cups) Review:


I've purchased these quite a few times and have always loved them. We live in rural Alaska and we rarely get fresh fruit shipped into our grocery store. Atop of that, we never get mandarin oranges. Yet, they are by far, one of my foster kiddos FAVORITE foods! We love healthy snacks and every day after school my kiddos come home starving. When it's available, fresh fruit is our snack. But when it's not, we have fruit cups!

These delicious mandarin oranges are packaged in little plastic cups with easily removable plastic wrapper tops. Plastic plastic plastic. I know that it's virtually impossible to create eco-friendly and efficient packaging for canned foods, but I do find it such a shame to add to our landfill with every serving of these yummy fruit packs. If only they could find biodegradable packaging for fruit cups! But until the day comes when such a thing exists, I won't dock this product points for their lack of eco-friendliness. They are packaged in a cardboard box- which is biodegradable!

As for the fruit themselves, we've never had a problem with this product. The fruit is always delicious, sweet, and with the perfectly soft yet yummy texture. For people not familiar with mandarin oranges, they are essentially small miniature slightly-less-sour oranges. Very yummy- and very kid-friendly too! My kiddos LOVE these and eat them up without one complaint. In fact- it's one of the few foods they'll beg for when they get home from school! "Can I have a fruit cup?" "Can I have another fruit cup?" "Can I have one more fruit cup?" Needless to say I'll happily hand my kids as many of these healthy treats as I can. These oranges are packed in water (which is actually more of a sweet orangey juice that the kids love sipping up), and have no preservatives added- so they truly are natural, yummy treats for my kids. If only they were organic, I'd be in healthy-parenting heaven!

The packages are always very full, you get the serving size you'd expect. The quality is great. The packaging may be a bit harsh on mother nature, and they aren't organic- but aside from those two downfalls, these fruit cups are fantastic products! And the kiddos love them!



Dole Mandarin Oranges in Light Syrup, 15 Ounce Cans (Pack of 12) Review:


Truly, I would rather eat fresh fruit. But it's hard to keep it in the house if you're not shopping every couple of days. This is a good solution. I enjoy them, grandchildren enjoy them. I also add them to a salad made of spinach or dark lettuce, with almonds and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing for a fine side dish. These are worth keeping in the pantry.



DOLE FRUIT BOWLS No Sugar Added Mandarin Oranges, 4 Cups (6 Pack) Review:


So by default I only buy no sugar added fruit cups and tend to pour out some of the "juice" even then...lol. Given that, the kids have tried all the varieties of Dole fruit cups and these are by far their favorite; I believe it's b/c mandarin oranges just tastes sweeter than pear or peach!

Prices are about the same as grocery stores but I do find it convenient to get a 6-pack in bulk delivered to me. However, I will say that I have received a broken package on occasion and since I have a tendency to not open all the boxes immediately (b/c I have a large walk-in pantry) it is kind of a pain to call Amazon to get a refund...though Amazon has always taken care of the problem.
