Dardimans' mandarins are handpicked exclusively from California orchards. Enticingly sweet, dainty and delicious, it's a basket of orchard-fresh bounty in every bite. These snack packets are our perfect single-serve packages to snack on and travel with and add to lunches. By maintaining the integrity of a fresh mandarin in its color, aroma, and flavor, Dardimans' slices are as close to the fresh fruit as possible. Just like fresh fruit, slices may have imperfections such as discoloration, seeds, bitterness, and may slightly vary in sweetness. The heart of a fruit's vitamin content is in the rind, which is why we leave it on.
