Oh the things we take for granted! Great story, I could visualize every sensation of the orange.
I've eaten many an orange in my day but reading this story was like tasting one for the first time. Nicely done.

You brought those good old days to life with a well crafted story. Good writing.

I agree that a fresh piece of fruit such as an orange is much better than candy any day. I liked this entry. I think a stronger title would have helped, since your current title (while relevant) doesn't do your story justice. Thanks for sharing! :)
Reading your entry makes me feel sorry all over again for my aunt who, after an accident, lost all her taste buds. Can you imagine life without an orange? A great entry! Kudos!

Crisply told story with charming dialog. I do remember getting that orange for Christmas.

You made me stop and think what it must have been like to taste an orange for the first time. What a treat it must have been. Congratulations on your EC.
