Easy does it.

One of the treats I have enjoyed over the Christmas season since I was a child are satsumas. the delight of peeling off the fragile leathery skin and eating the soft fruit within was one of the cheaper yet special treats in our house.As usual in December I started looking for them on the shelves in the grocery dept of the supermarket I use where they are usually found in mounds heaped up between the tangerines,mandarins and clementines.This Christmas however nearly all these seasonal delights had been replaced with......easy peelers...easy peelers? I presume some marketing tit decided to do away with all the magical names for the little citrus bombs for...easy peelers! I think I will have to look elsewhere for my daily fruit ration and maybe take up eating bendy yellow things instead.

I thought an easy peeler was soft copper.

I think they just labelled them tangerines here...I'm still eating my Christmas stash.
