so you buy some fancy citrus, and it's crazy tangy

when winter hits, it's hard to resist unusual citrus fruit at the store. visually appealing, and often so small-- meaning that even if it's a ridiculous price for a pound of them, one or two pieces won't set you back much.

if you do buy the fancy citrus, you will occaisionally get fruit that's more tart than you want to fill a bowl. my advice: peanut butter stuffed pretzels are the perfect companion to small citrus sections in that case. the saltiness of the pretzels complements your reaction to the citrus tang.

We got a batch of citrus that is blah... more tart than sweet and a bit underripe. So maybe I'll have to get some of those pretzels. Where do you find them?

at cvs, and it's their house brand. a bag used to cost 99c but that has since gone up to 1.19, i think. still almost oddly inexpensive.
