And yes, I am serious.
Last night I ate two of them, both almost totally tasteless (even the skin, pith removed, just tasted bitter, not orangey). Within half an hour I felt desperately nauseous and still do.
I don’t know if they’re contaminated by pesticides – though how this would render them tasteless I have no idea – but there is something radically wrong with them.
Interestingly, last week I bought a batch of Clems from Ocado. Just one of them was tasteless – and made me feel a little pukey, which quickly passed – the rest were perfect, so there’s clearly something going on with the Spanish Clem crop as both Tesco’s and Ocado’s are the same variety – Clemenules – and from Spain.
My advice is to avoid them like the plague. Or, at the very least, taste a segment and, if it’s tasteless, bin the whole thing.
