Giveaway: Sweet Scarletts Texas Red Grapefruit

I'm trying to eat healthier and include more fruit in my diet. I'm just not a big fan of fruit - but I know it's good for me - half a grapefruit has 100% of your daily Vitamin C - so I need to give it more of a shot. 
Then the folks at Sweet Scarletts contacted me and sent me a couple of their new Texas Red Grapefruit. These are from the same folks that bring you POM Wonderful and Wonderful Halos - so you know the produce is high quality. They've just recently introduced these Sweet Scarletts to Cincinnati - so they should be in your local grocer case right now! Since they sent me a couple - I wanted to give it a shot. 

I went for simple - and sliced it in half and sprinkled it with sugar. I didn't have a "grapefruit spoon" but just used a paring knife to slice out the pieces a little more easily. I have to say - it was extremely juicy and not bitter (I guess that was my misconception). Grapefruit is also low-cal with only 60 calories in half.

I had recently had grapefruit on a salad at Teller's and was really surprised by how sweet it was. Now trying it for breakfast - again - it's really sweet! Not sweet like an orange - but very good.


The folks at Sweet Scarlett's have provided me with a gift basket giveaway for my readers! One of you will win a gift basket with Sweet Scarletts grapefruit, a grapefruit saver, grapefruit spoon & knife and grapefruit-scented candles.

How do you eat your grapefruit? On salad or just simple with sugar? The folks at Sweet Scarletts encouraged me to try it baked with brown sugar! Check them out online for coupons as well...
