Wonderful Halos Orchard Visit

If I roll my kids through the grocery and tell them they can pick a few healthy snack foods to keep in the house through the week, without fail they grab for a bag of Halos.

Can you imagine their faces when I told Kenya and Chloe that I’m partnering with Wonderful Halos and we were invited to visit the actual Wonderful Halos orchard in northern California over their spring break? I’m not kidding when I tell you they started screaming and jumping up and down. 

I grew up going to u-pick farms in Kentucky and Indiana to gather some of the fresh produce we ate in our house, so I know the power of being a kid seeing and picking fruits and vegetables right off the tree and understand just how magnificent they taste. 

We started by meeting at the airport in Los Angeles to take the Halos plane up to the orchard and production factory with the incredibly kind Wonderful Halos team. This within itself was one of the coolest things we’ve ever had the chance to experience. As soon as we landed we got to visit the Halos headquarters and meet some of the team members who make the daily magic happen. We all received the softest Halos sweatshirts that made us feel like we were part of the team. 

Now the really fun part- heading to the orchard. As soon as we arrived the kids jumped out of the car and headed down the mile long rows of gorgeous mandarin trees. We all received baskets and clippers to pick bushels and bushels full of sweet and juicy Wonderful Halos. 

It immediately took me back to my own childhood experience. Smelling the sweet mandarin blossoms, combing through thousands of trees filled to the brim with one of our favorite healthy snack foods. 

After an hour plus in the fields we headed to the Halos factory to see how the mandarins are sorted based on their size, washed and then bagged into mandarins that will be delivered all over the country for our eating pleasure. We were fascinated seeing the entire process head to toe and watching the intense care and love the entire Halos team puts into their job.

At the end of our adventure we sat peeling and eating endless Wonderful Halos mandarins, reminiscing about our day with Gemma and my husband and truly appreciating everything that goes into growing and caring for each and every one of them! 

I’ve partnered with Wonderful Halos on this post. All thoughts are my own.

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: [email protected] or call him +2348105150446
    you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS’
