What Is It Wednesday {31}


What Is It Wednesday is back!ย 

Do any of my long time readers remember What Is It Wednesday?

I asked recently on Facebook if I should bring it back and quite a few of my long time readers said that they enjoyed the series and would love it if I would bring it back.

If you have been reading my site for years you might remember What Is It Wednesdays, but for my newer readers, or those that might not remember it, What Is It Wednesday is a series that I started back in 2011 as a way to encourage my family to try new things.

It also became a fun way to share new and unusual foods with my readers. Each week I shared a new food that my family tried, how we liked it, and how I cooked it. I also often asked you to guess what it was and then the next week I followed up with the correct answer.

I shared What Is It Wednesday posts for most of 2011 and 2012 and then I took a break, but I am excited to be bringing it back for 2015. My goal will be to share a new post each week. It might not happen each week, because life happens, but that is my goal. Hopefully I will be able to do them at least a couple Wednesdays a month.

We are starting back to What Is It Wednesday with you all guessing what this new food is that my family tried..


First of all let me apologize for not having something in the picture for you to reference for size. I usually try to put a penny or dime in the picture to help you see how large the item is, but this time I forgot. By the time I realized it my family had already devoured the item and it was too late.

WIIW 31-1

Now I am sure that you can all tell that this is a citrus of some sort, but does anyone know what exactly it is?

WIIW 31-2

When I shared What Is It Wednesdays before I learned how smart my readers are because there was always at least a few people that knew what it was. So, I am curious how many of you will know what exactly this is.

I love reading through the comments on these posts to see what everyone guesses. And I will share the answer next week and let you know what my family thought of it.

Have fun guessing!

  1. I saw those in Walmart the other day. I remember passing them up because they wanted 49 cents each for super ugly tangerines. LOL I can’t remember what they were called. But, I’m happy to see What Is It Wednesday back again. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I would say maybe an older orange? Shriveling stage starting at the top? LOL

  3. It looks like a Minneola Tangelo.

  4. We get those in our office fruit deliveries…They call them Ugli fruit.

  5. I think it is a clementine

  6. I LOVE “What is it Wednesday”!!!! So happy you brought it back! I’m going to guess a satsuma.

  7. Mineola

  8. Ugli, I think. I remember explaining it to a group of moms who had never heard of it and thought it was a fake name. I worked at a grocery store in high school/college and had to memorize fruits/veggies and the code numbers. lol. We were tested. So, I hope my memory serves me well.

  9. I’m thinking a tangelo…

  10. SUMO tangerines!

  11. Looks like a Honeybell to me.

  12. Sumo tangerine

  13. Was just at WalMart yesterday and looked at these…I think. ๐Ÿ™‚ If it’s what I think it is, then it’s a Minneola.

  14. Tangelo! I ate tons of those when I was pregnant with my first ๐Ÿ™‚
    Ugli fruits are green in the outside normally u think…and have a really thick rind…but those are delicious also!
