CUTIES® have several distinct characteristics that make them the perfect anytime, anywhere snack. Unlike other mandarins or oranges, they are seedless, super sweet, easy to peel and kid-sized—only a select few achieve CUTIES® ’ high standards.


Q: What is a Clementine?

A: Known as the darling of mandarins, Clementines are a sweet-to-eat, easy-to-peel fruit that is popular among all ages because it is seedless, sweet and juicy. A common sight during the winter months, Clementines have also earned the nickname “Christmas Oranges.”

Q: How many CUTIES® do you recommend kids eat for a portion?

A: CUTIES® are an excellent snack for kids. They are portion-controlled, all natural and a great source of potassium and fiber. One CUTIES® clementine has about 40 calories, 1 gram of protein, 8 grams of natural sugar and is loaded with 200 mg of potassium, 2 grams of dietary fiber, and no fat. By comparison, a medium sized banana has 110 calories, 19 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber. Please determine the right portion for your child along with your physician, keeping in mind that children’s calorie consumption can vary widely based upon their activity level, metabolism and diet.


Q: Are Cuties vegan?

A: Yes. Cuties are 100% vegan. Prior to shipping, they are coated with a plant-based wax, like many fruits and vegetables you find in the grocery store, in order to help them maintain their moisture and freshness in transport.
